Do you love turmeric as much as we do? It’s not hard to love this inflammation-busting superfood. That’s why we love creating new recipes that feature turmeric, like this delicious Tropical Turmeric Green Smoothie!

This smoothie combines spicy turmeric with zesty ginger, lemon, and sweet banana, and tropical mango to balance the flavor. This combo creates a tasty smoothie that packs a lot of anti-inflammatory benefits to give you a morning boost.

Turmeric also provides some potent immune defense. So if you’re still battling pollen allergies, this smoothie will boost your immune system and reduce any allergy-related inflammation.

Between the lemon, ginger, and turmeric, this smoothie is also helpful for digestion and cleansing the liver. And it wouldn’t be a green smoothie without some hearty greens! This recipe delivers a whopping 2 cups of kale, which is a great way to fill up on fiber, vitamins, minerals and other immune boosting, anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.

    Where do you buy your turmeric and how important is the quality of what you buy in terms of its health benefits? Hope everyone at the conscious cleanse had great Thanksgiving!

    • Jules Peláez

      I buy organic turmeric in bulk from Vitamin Cottage!

  • Julie W

    Can you recommend a replacement to the mango in the green smoothie? I am allergic to mango.

  • Bridget Legg

    I have done this but with spinach.. Awesome engery boost!

    • Jules Peláez

      Yay! Glad you like it Bridget!

  • Terry Schuh

    How many servings should come from this quart. I’m type II Diabetic. I can’t have much banana and mango at one time. Would this be 4 servings?

    • Jules Peláez

      Hey Terry, I would actually recommend that you try a low sugar option and avoid the ones with mango. Water, spinach, apple, cucumber and maybe half a banana would be yummy too. To answer your question though, this would be 1 serving or 1 quart.

    I’m a fan of your book, smoothies and working on the lifestyle. I often use fresh turmeric which I can get organically and cheaply at my local health food store here in France. How do you feel about fresh turmeric and how much to use? Also, a friend told me that turmeric should always be associated with black pepper to be effective. What do you know about this? I’d never seen that anywhere.

    And finally, I received a juice extractor for my birthday and have been loving it – how do you feel about fresh veg/fruit juices?

    • Jules Peláez

      Hi Jean! We love turmeric and fresh is always great. I would use it to taste, and adjust accordingly. I would probably start with an inch and go from there. And yes to fresh pressed juices. We lean more towards veggies than fruits to keep the sugar down. Have fun!

  • Jessika Rov

    Hello Jules! Is there any substitute for the avocado? I’m unfortunately allergic, but I think this smoothie is just what I need right now! Thanks for the wonderful recipes!

    • Jules Peláez

      For sure! You could simply omit it and/or replace it with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Enjoy!

  • Heather Henderson

    You use the whole lemon….not just the juice right? Can’t wait to make this as my next green smoothie! Just started my 14 days and loving it so far!

    • Jules Peláez

      Yes, I use the entire lemon. Cut away the yellow part of the peel but leave as much white (pith) part. Enjoy and happy cleansing!

  • Nicole C

    Is this smoothie cleanse approved?

    • Jo and Jules

      Hi Nicole, Yes, this smoothie is cleanse approved. We hope you enjoy it!! XO, J&J
