Give your fresh fruit and veggie smoothie a lift with a little turmeric. Adding the yellow spice that's most often associated with curry and yellow rice to this apple-carrot-ginger smoothie gives it an extra boost. With no added sweeteners, the smoothie recipe relies on the apple's natural sweetness; choose a sweet apple variety such as Fuji, Gala, or Golden Delicious. It's a delicious way to start your day or enjoy a quick afternoon pick-me-up.

Turmeric is a spice derived from a root that is related to ginger. The plant is native to Southeast Asia and India, and it's often used in food. Yet, it also has a strong taste that's not very pleasant on its own. Blending it with carrots and apples, along with a touch of ginger for extra spice, makes turmeric much more palatable to drink. While the recipe uses ground turmeric, you could substitute it with 1/4 tablespoon of freshly grated turmeric if you have the root on hand. Be careful with either form because turmeric is also a well-known natural dye and can quickly stain counters, cutting boards, and fabrics.

For this smoothie, you can peel the apple, carrots, and ginger if you like. It's a matter of personal preference, but either way, be sure to rinse the produce thoroughly to remove any dirt. To ensure the smoothest blend, you will want to use a high-powered blender or smoothie maker to break down the hard pieces. If the blending time heats up the smoothie, chill it before drinking or serve it over ice.

Use this recipe as an inspiration for other turmeric-laced smoothies. Adjust the proportions and mix and match different fruits and veggies to create custom smoothies, but avoid adding too much turmeric. The recipe makes enough for two drinks, and it is best to drink it right away. Scale it down if needed rather than store it in the fridge for any longer than a few hours.

Tip

  • Because this smoothie has such a long blend time, if using a high-powered blender like a Vitamix, it could heat up the smoothie. To make sure it's served cold, serve the smoothie over ice.
