Mango & Banana Smoothie with Turmeric Powder

Makes 2 servings

Fresh mango, coconut milk and apple come together in this Indian-inspired vegan smoothie. The freshly-grated turmeric root makes this vegan blend extra-healthy, and the frozen banana gives it a smooth, velvety texture. Thanks to the frozen banana, you also won't need ice cubes or crushed ice for this refreshing fruit smoothie.

Cook's Note: If you don't want to end up with a brick of frozen banana chunks that will need to be chipped apart before they can be used, you should go through the following steps when freezing bananas for smoothies: First, peel the bananas and cut them into bite-size chunks. Next, arrange the chunks in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking pan, and place the pan in the freezer. Once the chunks are completely frozen, transfer them to freezer-safe bags or containers.
