Recipe type: Drink
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
This naturally sweetened smoothie has an ice cream-like texture perfect for summer and a golden glow from anti-inflammatory turmeric. If you can't find the fresh root, substitute ground turmeric as below, reducing the quantity as the flavour is more intense.
  • 250ml coconut water
  • 200ml coconut milk (half a tin)
  • Frozen cheeks from 1 small mango
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • ½ tsp freshly grated turmeric root (or substitute ¼ tsp ground turmeric powder)
  • ½ tsp freshly grated ginger
  • toasted coconut flakes, chia seeds & turmeric powder to serve (optional)
  1. In a blender, combine the coconut water and milk, mango, banana, turmeric and ginger. Blitz until smooth then divide between two glasses. Sprinkle over toppings of choice and serve immediately.
