Carrot, Mango and Turmeric Smoothie

Makes 2 servings

This recipe pairs fresh mango with carrot juice to create a luscious, brightly-colored smoothie. The frozen banana this recipe calls for is added to give this vegan blend a creamy texture, while the turmeric powder ensures your body will get a generous dose of anti-inflammatory compounds.

Cook's Note: When making smoothies that use frozen bananas, there are a few steps you will want to follow in order to make sure your blender will be able to handle the frozen fruit with ease: First, peel the banana and cut it into bite-size chunks. Next, arrange the chunks in a single layer on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, and place the sheet pan in the freezer. Once the chunks are frozen, transfer them to freezer-safe bags and store the bags in the freezer until you need the banana chunks for your smoothies.

Carrot Turmeric  Smoothie


  • 1 ⅔ cups carrot juice
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and pitted
  • 1 ½ tsp pure turmeric powder
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 banana, peeled, sliced and frozen
  • Water, as needed


  • Add the carrot juice to a large-capacity blender, followed by the remaining ingredients.

  • Pour into tall glasses, and serve right away.
