¼ cup water
1 orange, peeled
⅓ pineapple, peeled (~1.5 cups pieces)
fresh ginger (piece ~¾ inch on a side)
turmeric (fresh piece ~¾ inch on a side, or ¼ tsp powder)
1 cup frozen mango
Blend on high until smooth. Makes 2 medium servings.
Depending on how much of a kick you want, you can increase the ginger and turmeric.
You can get both pineapple and mango fresh or frozen. In my experience, if you find good ones, fresh tastes better, although frozen is fine, especially when blended with other things. For me, getting mango out of it’s skin and removing its pit is enough work that I generally like to reserve it for when I’m going to eat the mango straight. Cutting a pineapple goes fast enough that I don’t mind doing it for smoothies.
I slice ginger into ~⅛-inch slices perpendicular to the length of the root, because otherwise sometimes its fibers do not get fully blended.
