Tropical Smoothie

I decided to try a new smoothie with some orange in it (not orange juice, too much sugar and no fiber)so that I could get some vitamin c. So I looked in my freezer to see what else I could put in it. I found strawberries, blueberries, pineapples, peaches, and mangoes. I went with a tropical theme and left out the berries since I put those in my smoothies on a daily basis. Tropical, you ask? I suppose I’m just wishing I was on a beach.

I also always put turmeric in my smoothies because of its anti-inflammatory properties since I’m constantly in a state of inflammation due to Endometriosis. I still put turmeric in my tropical smoothie because it’s what I do on a daily basis. I also added a dash of black pepper (don’t worry it doesn’t affect the taste) because it helps the body to absorb the turmeric.

This smoothie would also be delicious with peanut butter added in because isn’t every smoothie with peanut butter in it delicious?

Also, I’m not entirely sure if peaches are tropical. I don’t actually think they are.

Anyway, if you make this smoothie, let me know what you think by commenting below, sharing on Facebook, tagging @theplantedkitchen on Instagram, or using the hashtag #theplantedkitchen.

  1. This looks really yummy! I don’t drink enough smoothies, but I think I am going to start! I bookmarked this recipe for later 🙂

  2. Turmeric is one of my favorite spices, but I have never tried it in a smoothie before. Thank you for sharing this delicious smoothie recipe!

  3. I’ve heard the turmeric is so good for you. Can you taste it at all?

    • Turmeric is very good for you! In this smoothie, I think it would depend on how ripe the banana is because the banana gets sweeter as it gets more ripe. Hope that helps!
