When the weather is warm I like to make the children a smoothie, either as part of their breakfast or as an after-school snack. It’s a great way to get some extra vitamin-filled fruit in their diet. My family didn’t even guess I’d added turmeric to this smoothie!

Whilst I was developing the recipe I served the same smoothie in a few different ways. Each day I used the same ingredients but with different amounts of fresh and frozen fruit.

Turmeric Mango Smoothie Serving Variations

Smoothie:

If you prefer a Turmeric Mango Smoothie Drink rather than a thick smoothie bowl, use frozen mango and fresh pineapple. Continue as per the recipe

Smoothie Bowl:

For a delicious smoothie bowl which is thick enough to decorate with your choice of fresh fruit. use frozen mango and frozen fresh pineapple.

Smoothie Ice-block:

Freeze any leftover smoothie drink or smoothie bowl into snack size zip lock bags for a cool treat. I like to add a couple of pieces of additional fruit to the ice-blocks prior to freezing.

Tips and Tricks

Ginger

I like fresh ginger a lot! So I use it often in smoothies, it does tend to give the smoothie a “spicy” flavour, if you have small children you might want to leave this out.

Peppercorns

Pepper allows the Turmeric to be better absorbed by the body. Happily, it doesn’t affect the flavour of the drink.

Green Cardamon

I really like the flavour of cardamom, especially when its teamed with ginger and turmeric. If you’re not a fan you can reduce or omit the cardamom pods.

Frozen Mango

I prefer the “Boost” brand of frozen mango. It’s now available in Woolworths supermarkets in the frozen fruit section. I feel this brand is sweeter and has more flavour than other brands.

Liquid

Depending on your preference you can use any of these 3 liquid bases for your smoothie. I used plain tap water to test my recipe on the kids. You could substitute regular water for coconut water for added electrolytes and nutrients.  If you prefer a sweeter smoothie use apple juice. I know this may seem a little unhealthy, but when you buy a smoothie at Boost Juice the base is always a fruit juice. That’s why it’s so delicious!! 100 % Apple juice instead of water was my favourite variation.
