This smoothie is luxuriously decadent and creamy, thickened by coconut milk and chia seeds and lightly and naturally sweetened with mango and dates. Healthy fats—Coconut milk, coconut flakes and coconut oil—help balance hormones and are incredibly nourishing for your skin.

Turmeric, with its distinctly brilliant orange-yellow pigment, contributes to this smoothie’s golden hue. It also contains beneficial anti-oxidant compounds that, taken consistently over time, can help tame inflammation.
