Tropical Turmeric Smoothie Bowl seemed like the perfect combo due to its tropical flare to pretend it’s spring up in the Northeast. Pineapple, mango, banana . . . feeling like you’re on a beach yet? Also, do you guys like my sad attempt at “plating?” 😂 That aside, this smoothie was delish. I saw the idea for adding ground turmeric to smoothies from Gimme Some Oven and thought I needed it to fight the Monday blues from studying pharmacology. Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. I turned the smoothie into a bowl because I found DRAGON FRUIT!! It was my first time working with dragon fruit, and I must say, the interior fruit is so mild and melon-like in comparison to its vibrant, funky exterior.
Ingredients (serves 1).
For the Smoothie:
- Equal parts milk and water
- 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 c water
- 1/2 c frozen pineapple
- 1/4 c frozen mango
- 5-6 frozen banana slices
- 1/4 t ground turmeric
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (like Aloha’s plant-based version)
For the Bowl:
- Extra fruit/berries — fresh or frozen
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Chia seeds
- DRAGON FRUIT
* Please note: this post is not endorsed by Aloha, but I have received their products in the past. I only post recipes using things I love, and I just happen to love their protein powder.
- Combine all ingredients for the smoothie in a blender. I also think it helps to add the liquid at the bottom. Blend well. Add more water if needed for a thinner consistency.
- Pour smoothie into a bowl.
- Top with desired toppings!
- Grab a spoon and enjoy!
