Tasty Tuesday – Turmeric Smoothie


It truly is quite tasty! Last week, Tasty Tuesday was a delectable vegetarian lasagna. This week, I thought it would be nice to lighten things up with a luscious turmeric smoothie. No face-making until you actually taste it! You will definitely be surprised! And, although not low in calories, this smoothie is so yummy and satisfying that it’s terrific as a breakfast replacement drink.

Turmeric Smoothie

  • Servings: 2
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print
Combine in your favorite blender:
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup frozen mango chunks
2 fresh bananas
1 1/2 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1 cup water
 

It’s always hard for me to stop at one glass of this heavenly drink, but the calorie content — mainly due to the coconut milk — always brings my mind back to a reality check. I love it as a breakfast replacement though, especially because of the many nutritional benefits of turmeric. In India, turmeric has been used for thousands of years for some of the following benefits:

  1. Natural liver detoxifier
  2. Strong anti-inflammatory properties
  3. Assists the metabolism and thereby helps with weight management
  4. Powerful immune system booster
  5. Sometimes used as a treatment for depression
  6. Can accelerate the healing of physical wounds
  7. Used as a natural painkiller

Indians use turmeric in many of their vegetable and meat dishes. It has a deep, rich color and incorporating it into your culinary lifestyle is easy and fun to do.

Try it! And enjoy!

  1. We really are on the same wave length about some things! I started adding turmeric into my diet after a really bad fall a little more than a year ago. It was recommended to me at that time and I got into the habit of making turmeric tea and just adding in more curry tastes to my usual recipes. But I never once thought about adding it to a smoothie and this recipe really calls to me. šŸ™‚ The turmeric with mango? Whoa! I hope I don’t overdo it. LOL!

    1. I’ve never tried turmeric tea šŸ™‚ I’ll have to add that to my “to do” list! Even with all the time I spent in India I’ve never been a big mango fan, but in this smoothie it is really tasty. Wishing you a wonderful day, Debra ~ Lisa
