This Turmeric Banana Smoothie is a healthy way to start your day. It's got ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, and cardamom.
Ever since the craziness of 2020 hit, I have been adding ginger and turmeric to my morning smoothie. I love the health benefits of turmeric and ginger, so I figured I'd showcase the ingredients in a Turmeric Banana Smoothie.
I take both for inflammation. I made a Turmeric Ginger Latte recipe as well that is warm and comforting.
With warming spices, mango, and banana, this healthy smoothie tastes sweet and creamy.
- Almond milk: You could also use oat milk, soy milk, cashew milk or your favorite dairy-free milk.
- Coconut milk: Adds a creamy rich flavor and to help the turmeric with absorption.
- Mango: Adds sweetness. You can use fresh or frozen mango.
- Banana: Adds a sweet creamy flavor. You can use fresh or frozen banana. I like to always have frozen bananas in my freezer for smoothies.
- Ground turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon, cardamom: Adds warm spice flavors. You could also add a smoothie powder mix.
- Black pepper: Helps the absorption of turmeric. You could leave it out.
- Hemp seeds: Adds protein. You could use protein powder, chia seeds or another seed or nut.
