Steps

Step 1: Preparing the Smoothie

• 1 cup (packed) spinach*
• 1 cup (packed) kale*
• 1 1/2 cups frozen mango pieces
• 2-inch piece fresh turmeric
• 1-inch piece fresh ginger
• 2 celery stalks*
• 1 + cups fresh orange juice
• cayenne, to taste

Method

*Note: For a nice cold smoothie, freeze the spinach, kale and celery first.

To make the smoothie, place everything into a high speed blender and blend until smooth. For the cayenne pepper, start with a pinch or two adding more as needed or desired.

If the smoothie is a bit too thick, add a bit more orange juice and blend again. Also, depending on the sweetness of the mangoes, a date can be added for a bit of extra sweetness. Essentially, feel free to play around with the amounts of ingredients added, to see what suits you best.

Serve immediately.

    This sounds amazing! I love a morning smoothie. I take turmeric tabs daily to help with inflammation and I cook with it often but have never used fresh. I will search some out so I can try this. Is it hard to find? I would assume the difference in taste is night and day similarly with fresh ginger and ginger in the jar.

    Fresh turmeric has a bit more of a punch or livelier flavour than dried turmeric, much live fresh and dried ginger. Fresh turmeric is available in well stocked grocery stores — I generally buy it at Whole Foods. Good luck and let me know if you find it, and if so, what you thought. Cheers!

    Hi Carol - Sure, you can freeze this smoothie. Just let it thaw out a little bit; on occasion, I take some of a frozen smoothie and add it to a new batch of smoothies! Once in a while I re-blend a previously frozen smoothie - to ensure smooth consistency! I hope you continue to enjoy learning with Rouxbe! Chef Kirk

    Very good! I didn't have fresh turmeric so I added some ground turmeric...wasn't sure how much to use but it turned out great! I will be sure to add to this to one of my morning smoothies. Thank you.
