Welcome the brightness and warmth of sunshine any time with this vibrant mango turmeric smoothie bowl. This tropical mango turmeric smoothie is full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and vitamin C.
I was always so skeptical about smoothie bowls. For me, a smoothie is supposed to be a quick on the go meal or snack and a smoothie bowl takes away from that completely. Then I made my key lime smoothie bowl and realized how delicious they actually are. They are perfect for those days when you want to have something nutrient packed with lots of flavor and texture. It's more on par with a bowl of oatmeal where you have time to put something more hearty together, but maybe you aren't in the mood for a hot meal. I approve. And that's why I am sharing this mango turmeric smoothie bowl with you now.
So this mango turmeric smoothie bowl comes from a new favorite cookbook, Good Clean Food by Lily Kunin. It's full of simple, but flavorful recipes that don't take a ton of time to make. It's the perfect cookbook for meal prepping and getting back on track (or staying there) without too much effort. In a word, its incredible. She makes eating well look like so much fun and the recipes are pretty freaking tasty.
I would say that it was hard to choose a recipe from the book to share, but really, it wasn't that hard. Her smoothie bowls look absolutely stunning and drew me in right away. They were the first recipes I tried and the ones I make over and over again. The only issue was choosing one smoothie bowl in particular to share. In the end, this mango turmeric smoothie bowl won out because of its sunshine yellow color and the fact that it is easier to find turmeric than it is to find pink dragon fruit.
I just adore the bright, almost mustardy color of the turmeric smoothie. It is like pure sunshine in a bowl. The mango and citrus reinforce that brightness in flavor and color. The turmeric adds a lovely warmth to the flavor profile while also dialing up the vibrancy of the smoothie bowl.
