The classic ratio of vegetables to fruits in a green smoothie is 2 two cups green vegetable to 1 cup fruit. Sometimes rules are made to be broken! In this turmeric green smoothie recipe we have amped up the fruit to give it a tropical edge. Imagine drinking this smoothie on the Maya Riviera or Hawaii.
What makes this turmeric green smoothie great?
The coconut milk, pineapple, and mango bring the requisite tropical, tangy sweetness. The Greek yogurt and coconut milk bring the fat. Most importantly, the lemon, ginger, kale, and turmeric bring the anti-oxidant punch to fight against systematic inflammation in the body.
The Tangy, Tropical, Turmeric Green SmoothiePrint This
- 2 Cups Fresh Organic Spinach

- 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
- 2 Cups Pineapple
- 1 Cup Mango or Papaya
- Juice of 1/2 Lemon or Lime
- Small piece of fresh ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon of Turmeric
Blend spinach, Greek yogurt, and coconut milk until smooth.
Add other ingredients. Blend until smooth as well. Enjoy!
Vegans may remove the Greek yogurt. Purchase organic spinach since it is high on the EWG's Annual Dirty Dozen list of pesticide-laden produce.
