What is turmeric?

Believe it or not, turmeric isn’t just a yellow powder used in curry! In fact, turmeric has been used for thousands of years as both a spice and a powerful medicinal herb.

Turmeric contains an active ingredient called curcumin. Curcumin is a compound that provides potent anti-inflammatory effects. It’s also an antioxidant. Turmeric is quite well-researched; it has been proven to help the body fight against several diseases.

Anti-inflammatory turmeric smoothie bowl ingredients

This 6-ingredient smoothie bowl is made with wholesome ingredients:

  • Mango: Frozen mango chunks are the main ingredient in this smoothie recipe. Mango is a great source of vitamin C and contains vitamin A, vitamin E, copper, and folate.
  • Banana: Frozen bananas not only provide a natural sweetness, but they also help to create a thick and creamy consistency. Bananas provide vitamin B6, potassium, and magnesium.
  • Turmeric: Turmeric can help fight inflammation. It also contributes to the vibrant yellow-orange color of this smoothie bowl!
  • Lemon: Fresh lemon juice adds a refreshing, slightly tart flavor.
  • Hemp seeds: Although optional, I love adding hemp seeds because they contain plant-based protein + omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
  • Plant-based milk: Use your favorite plant-based milk! Coconut, almond, cashew, and soy are all good options. Instead, you can opt for plain water, coconut water, or orange juice.

How much turmeric should I put in my smoothie?

I recommend adding 1/2 tsp turmeric powder to your smoothies and smoothie bowls. If you add more, the spice will likely overpower the other ingredients. Be sure to include sweet fruit, as well, in order to balance the turmeric flavor. This recipe includes mango and banana (two sweet fruits) for that reason!

Can you put fresh turmeric in a smoothie?

Yes! You can use fresh turmeric instead of the powdered variety. Remember to peel the turmeric first, and I recommend only using a 1/2 tbsp chunk. Also, unless you have a powerful blender, it may be helpful to grate the turmeric prior to blending.
