Turmeric Mango Smoothie

A trendy, uber healthy ingredient with a long list of benefits, turmeric has a similar taste to ginger, but it’s not ginger. As a popular Indian spice, it pairs with sweet mango for a smoothie with a flavorful kick.

  1. You my dear deserve an award for your adventurous nature. Turmeric has so many healing properties and I have been told countless times to drink it to combat pain but I have been very scared to try. This might just be the recipe that moves me! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I was going to ask the exact same question as Angela. Thanks for the great recipe Sanura!

    It is such an original way to get turmeric into your diet.

    I have to tweet this straight away!

  3. Hi, Angie! I haven’t tried making this smoothie with ground turmeric, but could make a great substitute. Start with a quarter teaspoon, and slowly increase the amount to your personal taste.

  4. Hi Sanura! This smoothie recipe looks terrific, and I’m anxious to try it because I’ve read that turmeric is a good anti-inflammatory. But I was wondering two things: first, may dry turmeric powder be used? And if not, is fresh turmeric available in health food stores?
