I should call this a sunshine smoothie, the colour of this smoothie is ever so beautiful. And cheerful. And uplifting.
The blend of mango, banana, turmeric, ginger and cinnamon is just divine. This is a lovely sweet tasting healthy smoothie with added benefits of anti-inflammatory turmeric and ginger. You can blend this for breakfast or mid morning snack, anytime, really when you need a little pick me up and comfort.
There has been many studies about the benefits of turmeric root recently and I have started adding turmeric to my diet on a regular basis. Fresh turmeric root is more widely available these days, look for it in health food shops or Asian supermarkets. I have added almond milk to this recipe, but any other plant milk or water will do just fine.
