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.

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!
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!
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.
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?
