Ingredients you'll need
Coconut milk - To make your turmeric smoothie bowl extra creamy, use coconut milk. Other milk alternatives work just as well but coconut milk is definitely the creamiest.
Bananas - Fresh or frozen work well, but for a thicker consistency use frozen bananas.
Mango - To boost that Vitamin C content and add a little sweetness use frozen mango chunks.
Pineapple - I love adding pineapples to smoothies, they give a certain tangy sweetness and add to the texture.
Fresh ginger - Ginger is packed with healthy nutrients and works so well with turmeric. You can add as little or as much as you want.
Turmeric - A little goes a long way.
How Much Turmeric Should I Add to My Smoothie?
You do not need to add loads of turmeric to benefit from all its health properties. Adding just 2 tsp of turmeric powder to your smoothie will be highly beneficial and add a great flavour. But also feel free to add more turmeric to your smoothie bowl if you prefer it stronger!

What makes a smoothie bowl thick
Frozen fruit is the key to making your smoothie bowl thick. The addition of frozen banana in this turmeric smoothie bowl makes this smoothie bowl extra creamy and thick. Adding chia seeds can also soak up moisture and make the smoothie bowl thicker. Another way to ensure your smoothie bowl is thick is to start by only adding a little milk at a time until you've reached your desired consistency.
