MANGO GINGER TURMERIC SMOOTHIE
Quick and Easy Mango Ginger Turmeric Smoothie: Need a fast and easy breakfast or snack? Try this healthy, nutrient-packed smoothie made with mango, turmeric, ginger and oats. It’s great for an on-the-go breakfast!
I’m a big fan of smoothies of all kinds. You can find places that serve smoothies of all types and flavors almost everywhere it seems these days.
Not to mention, they can add in ingredients and nutrients that you need but don’t always get on a daily basis. Some people would prefer to have a protein, nutrient packed smoothie for a post-workout meal instead of breakfast. To each their own I say.
A smoothie might be a good way to replace that morning coffee that has virtually no nutrients and can be enjoyed on your drive to work.
This delicious Mango Ginger Turmeric Smoothie Recipe is great for maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet with a busy lifestyle made right in the comfort of your own home.
Let’s look at the ingredients for this recipe and you’ll see what I mean. First, it has a full serving of fruit which most of us don’t always mange to fit into our meal plans. You also get 8 grams of fiber by adding in healthy Greek yogurt and whole grain oats. It also has 16 grams of protein which really fills you up and helps with post-workout recovery. Finally, you throw in some ginger and turmeric and that’s it. You’re all set to go!
Some additional health benefits of adding turmeric is that regular consumption can help you in the fight against free radicals and inflammation. Turmeric has long been know for its antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties in other parts of the world. But it has only recently starting to be used in the United States for these reasons.
If you want to mix up your smoothie recipes for breakfast, post-workout, or just to try something new for a delicious, nutrient packed snack then try this Mango Ginger Turmeric Smoothie next time you have a chance.
