Ingredients:

1 Mango

1 Lemon, juice

1 tsp. turmeric

1 cup milk (almond/coconut/hemp/cow–follow your preference)

1 frozen banana (Note: always keep a bag in the freezer!)

1. Mash mango pulp, lemon juice, and turmeric into a paste of sorts. (I prepared this in the evening to use for my morning smoothie…can be made and used immediately). FYI: This makes about 1 cup of mango paste so keep in a sealed container in the fridge.

2. Add 1-2 Tbsp mango paste to a blender with 1 cup of milk and the frozen banana.

3. Blend until a smooth and creamy consistency.

4. Pour in a glass and mmmm!
