Sunshine in a glass ~ Turmeric Smoothie with Mango Ginger

I love experimenting with herbs and spices, but this morning I found myself in a time crunch, so out came the VitaMix and this combo came together in a hurry. Zip Zip.. Done.   Sunshine in a Glass is the result. Turmeric Smoothie with Ginger and Mango is simple to make and a delight to drink!

I have posted several recipes to maximize your turmeric intake, here and here. I consider turmeric and ginger as a starting point for many recipes.  I had some fresh roots from the market, but good quality turmeric powder would also work in this recipe.

  3. 1 frozen banana, chopped
  4. 1 cup fresh mango, cut into chunks
  5. 2-3 grinds of fresh pepper

  1. Toss all ingredients in a blender or VitaMix or similar and whiz up!
