Everyday Turmeric Smoothie
Prep time
Total time
This is my version of a "golden smoothie" with simple, nutritious ingredients. The fruit and spices play beautifully off of one another, and the touch of full-fat coconut milk helps to maximize absorption of fat-solutble turmeric. Don't be tempted to omit the black pepper. It can increase the benefits of turmeric by 2000%!
Serves: 1 serving
  • 1 frozen ripe banana, broken into chunks (can sub ¾ cup frozen mango chunks)
  • ½ to 1 cup dairy-free unsweetened coconut milk beverage (I use So Delicious)
  • 2 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon vanilla extract (I use alcohol-free)
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 3 to 5 drops pure stevia or your favorite sweetener, to taste
  1. Place the frozen fruit, ½ cup milk beverage, coconut milk, vanilla (to taste), turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, salt, and pepper in your blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Blend in sweetener, to taste, and more milk beverage to thin, if desired.
