How to Make a Coconut & Turmeric Smoothie

I have always been a smoothie enthusiast! Starting the day with this detoxifying drink will leave you feeling great and ready to tackle your day ahead.

I’ve tried using packaged detoxification powders in smoothies. What resulted were bitter, tasteless drinks that I wish to forget. Now I prefer to whip up this quick fruit detox smoothie in the morning. This smoothie, complete with coconut and turmeric, has many succulent fruits like mango, banana, orange, and coconut.

Together, these ingredients work wonders on the skin, body, and hair.

Let’s dive into the recipe.

Try a Coconut & Turmeric Smoothie!

A glass of this luscious, colorful smoothie fills the body with all the necessary nutrients to get your body and mind working together in harmony.

  • Mango, for instance, cleanses the skin while promoting immunity and eye health. Bananas contain lots of potassium and help keep the heart stronger.
  • Coconut is one of the best ways to hydrate the body. This smoothie contains coconut in three forms: milk, yogurt, and flakes. If you can’t find coconut yogurt, you can make your own! Pour a can of coconut milk in a bowl, whisk it, mix in four probiotic tablets gently, cover with a clean cloth, and let it sit for 24-48 hours. Refrigerate, and use the yogurt for up to a week.
  • Maple syrup sweetens without the extra sugar, boosts immunity, and helps make bones stronger.
  • And last but certainly not least, turmeric is popular for its medicinal, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.

This smoothie with coconut and turmeric is extremely beneficial as all the nutritious fruits serve as anti-oxidants.

Moreover, the drink’s sweetness, color, dense texture, and scent are naturally derived from fruits and maple syrup with no added sugar or preservatives. It’ll leave you feeling full, energetic, and satisfied for hours.
