I was soooo excited by how this turned out! This smoothie is a perfect way to start your day because it is delicious, satisfying, and offers many health benefits, including:
Mango: Antioxidants, fiber, pectin, vitamin C, lowers cholesterol, vitamin A, vitamin E, normalizes insulin levels …..
Lemon: Alkanizes the body, vitamin C, liver stimulant, citric acid, antibacterial properties, contains anti-cancer compounds …
Banana: Potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamin C, magnesium, manganese, natural energy boost, tryptophan (betters your mood and reduces stress)…
Turmeric: Anti-inflamatory, support healthy joint function, promotes radiant skin, improves digestion…
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!
