Anti-inflammatory Coconut, Mango & Turmeric smoothie

Fresh turmeric works best in this recipe. The earthy flavour compliments perfectly the tropical tastes of coconut, banana and mango. Turmeric is also powerfully anti-inflammatory.


  • 1 cup coconut milk (the stuff that comes in tins)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1-2 inch piece of turmeric root
  • 1 scoop unflavoured vegan protein powder
  • 80g frozen mango
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tsp ashwagandha (optional)
  • 1 tsp baobab (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. If you’re lucky enough to live somewhere warm enough for the tinned coconut milk to be liquid, measure out 1 cup and place in blender cup. for the rest of us, use half the liquid and half the solid coconut cream (or melt for 20 mins on a radiator or in a 50C oven].
  2. Meanwhile, peel the turmeric root and pop into blender cup. Be careful, though! Turmeric leaves its bright yellow mark on everything it comes into contact with…
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender cup and blend for around 20 seconds.
  4. Serve with fresh mint leaves, and ice if desired.
