We love this recipe because it’s so easy-to-make (yay to blenders!) and can be served raw or heated. This turmeric veggie and collagen-filled Coconut Curry Soup is a delicious, exotic blend of healthy spices and vegetables. The combination of Thai coconut and carrots, cucumbers and red bell peppers allows for a meal rich in vitamin C, important for protecting the immune system. Spices such as turmeric and cloves in the Daily Turmeric Tonic not only give it an exquisite taste, but they also have anti-inflammatory and cancer prevention properties. The additional of collagen protein will help keep your skin wrinkle-free, hydrated, and glowing! Enjoy it cold or hot, for lunch or for dinner, alone or with friends. With its heart healthy qualities, you will not want to miss out on savoring it anytime of the year.
