This is a fabulous tasting blueberry shake and the addition of a tiny bit of turmeric powder really makes it!
Here’s another of the healthy fruit shakes I’m drinking every morning. The ideas for fruit shakes are limitless but this blueberry shake is one of my favourites, I just love the addition of turmeric which is probably really unexpected for most people.
For me, eating healthily is all about different flavours. This blueberry and turmeric lassi has a distinct flavour is definitely a healthy choice!
Turmeric has so many health benefits. I like the fact that it is liver cleansing and has been proven to be health enhancing on many levels.
Some of you may find the flavour of raw turmeric powder overpowering in my blueberry shake.
You will probably get used to it. I use a teaspoon in my recipe but you might like to start with a little less.
If you have to, leave it out completely. There’s of course plenty of goodness in those blueberries.
You might notice that I have used low fat yogurt in this recipe and not non-fat.
Firstly, I’m not on a diet and the extra fat makes the drink creamier. Also, in order to get the most benefit out of the turmeric, it needs to be digested with a little fat.
I also have to point out that this drink is technically a lassi as drunk all over India every morning.
I refer to it as a shake in my writing as I think it works well as a shake and ticks all the boxes of a fruit shake!
You could also use full fat yoghurt for this blueberry lassi which is amazing. That’s up to you.
I have recently acquired a new blender and soup maker, the Vitamix A2500i.
Up until very recently I have always used an inexpensive Nutribullet for shakes but I think you will agree that the Vitamix A2500i produces a smoother shake as you can see from the pictures.
If you enjoy this lassi give my other ones a go:
Disclosure: I was sent the Vitamix A2500i blender to try in my recipes. I love it and was under no obligation to say that. I do not work for Vitamix but if you click the links provided to the machine and order, I do make a small amount of money through Amazon Associates for the recommendation.
- 250ml (1 cup) low fat Greek yogurt
- 100g blueberries
- 75ml ( 1/4 cup ) honey ( optional )
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 handful of ice
- Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I usually run the blender for at least a minute or just use the smoothie setting on your Vitamix A2500i blender.
- Serve immediately while the lassi is still nice and cold.
