This Mango Ginger Turmeric Smoothie is a delicious, nutrient-packed smoothie filled with mango, oats, ginger and antiinflammatory turmeric. It makes the perfect quick and healthy breakfast! (gluten-free)
Let me preface this post with a disclosure: I really don’t drink smoothies much.
It’s not that I don’t like smoothies. I like smoothies. They are filled with nutrients (usually), delicious, and a great option for a quick breakfast. But I just don’t drink them that much. I always end up starving 2 hours later every time I drink one, and I would much rather eat my food (I’d eat eggs or oatmeal for every meal) than drink it.
That said, I know many of you prefer smoothies as your morning meal or as a post-workout snack. That’s great! They’re an easy way to get in lots of nutrition in a hurry. Which is why I created this yummy mango ginger turmeric smoothie.
What I love about this refreshing smoothie (besides the taste) is that it’s got plenty of staying power to keep you full for hours. It has 16 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber thanks to whole grain oats and Greek yogurt. It also has a full serving of fruit, soothing ginger, and turmeric for an extra dose of anti-inflammatory antioxidants.
Besides the gorgeous golden color turmeric provides, it also ups the health factor of this yummy mango ginger turmeric smoothie. Turmeric has been around for hundreds of years, but is just becoming popular in the United States for its antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. One smoothie probably doesn’t have enough of the spice to provide all of these benefits, but consuming turmeric regularly can help you fight inflammation and free radicals. What better reason to blend up this nutritious smoothie?
If you’re looking to switch up your smoothie, or perhaps try a new breakfast, give this mango ginger and turmeric smoothie a try!
