Smoothie with fresh turmeric (curcuma)

After a few smoothies with turmeric powder (lovely, I must say), I decided to buy the fresh root and give it a try. It is milder (well, I didn't use tons!) and fresher, with a different 'zing', a bit like fresh ginger.

For this smoothie I used a banana, some frozen mango, a kiwi gold (yellow kiwi), a piece of fresh turmeric root (peeled) and coconut water as a base. I was expecting the smoothie to be more yellow, of course not as yellow as with turmeric powder, but at least a bit more than what I got, so more cutting of roots and more 'experiments' are needed :-).

  1. Delicious idea! I have also been making experiments with using turmeric powder in smoothies (trying to achieve something like a lassi), especially with mango, it's a great way to spice it up! If I find fresh root I will also give it a try!

    1. Fresh Turmeric is a new thing here too, before you couldn't find it in supermarket, I guess is trendy now :-)
