Mango Turmeric Smoothie

Mango Turmeric Smoothie is a great/healthy way to start the day. Coconut milk is the base, making it completely vegan! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

What I like about this recipe for Mango Turmeric Smoothie (besides the fact that it tastes delicious!)  is that it can be made with things I have around my kitchen.

A cup of coconut milk to use up can be the impetus of me making this smoothie.

I almost always have a knob of ginger on my counter.

Frozen bananas can be found in my freezer because I stash a good supply of them in there when I’ve bought too many bananas (often) with the hope of making smoothies.  Present Tracy gets to reap the benefits of Past Tracy’s errors (there are many of them).

Frozen mango chunks?  My kid likes eating them from the freezer for dessert, so of course, YES I stock up on them.

This recipe comes from my friend Sarah Copeland’s new cookbook – Every Day is Saturday.

I’m excited to have a copy because I consider her the master of simple gourmet!

She also loves vegetables like I love vegetables so I turn to her when I need a good salad.

Mango Turmeric Smoothie is a great/healthy way to start the day. Coconut milk is the base, making it completely vegan! Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com

The creaminess of the coconut milk plays nicely with the spice of the ginger and turmeric mixed with the sweetness of the mango and banana. I loved the texture.  One sip made my husband say “What’s this tropical delight?”

It’s my new favorite smoothie, is what it is.

Happy Monday, friends!

We are on Week 25 of 2019. That means we are almost halfway through this year. WOW.

This weekend was filled with activities!  There was a baseball game, a tournament, dinner at my brother’s house, a friend visit, another baseball game and dinner at my Dad’s house for Father’s Day.  Cooper has camp this week (yay!). I’m hoping to get enough of my work done so we can play in the afternoons.  Thank you for ordering a Pep Talk Print Pack!! I have 5 packs (they’re limited edition!) left in the shop this week.  They need a good home! Sparkles included!
