Mango Turmeric Ginger Smoothie
My daughter is going through a phase where she won’t drink anything green. This makes it tough because every morning, my husband and I enjoy a green spinach smoothie.
So in my struggle to come up with something simple and green-free, I created this mango turmeric ginger smoothie. And she loved it! I wanted to share it here with you guys in case you might like to try it. It’s super easy and really tasty! I’m always playing around with simple easy snack ideas for kids, and this mango turmeric smoothie is a great one to try. Do you have any smoothie recipes that your kids really like? let me know!
Can I Put Turmeric In My Smoothie?
Yes! I like to add 1 tsp of turmeric to this smoothie. Also, the turmeric isn’t overpowering by any means. It has a nice pleasant taste. Feel free to add 1 tsp more if you’d like!
Mango Turmeric Ginger Smoothie Ingredients
Here are the ingredients you’ll need for the mango turmeric ginger smoothie.
- Milk – You can use regular dairy milk, non-dairy milk (almond, oat, etc) or water for this smoothie recipe.
- Banana – Freeze the banana the night before making this smoothie. It helps to make the smoothie more creamy.
- Mango – You’ll need a bag of frozen mango to make this recipe.
