My almost-daily breakfast
3/4 to 1 cup frozen mango chunks
(Can use frozen banana or half mango half banana)
1 inch fresh turmeric root (I keep in freezer for daily use) OR 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 inch fresh ginger root OR 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper or pepper flakes
1 Tablespoon ground flax meal OR chia seeds
1 teaspoon raw honey or maple syrup to taste
2/3 cup or so unsweetened coconut milk
Method: Mix all ingredients in smoothie machine or blender. Add enough water to thin to your liking.
***The health benefits of turmeric are amazing! I do not peel the turmeric or ginger root, just give them a quick wash before throwing into the smoothie mixture.
