[Foodie Friday Recipe] Creamy Vegan Smoothie With Mango, Coconut, Turmeric and Matcha
This creamy and delicious vegan smoothie recipe is packed with healthy ingredients like mango, coconut, turmeric, and matcha for a powerful antioxidant punch!
Smoothies have become very popular as a delicious and supposedly healthy drink, but sometimes they can be deceptively high in sugar that makes them more of a dessert than the healthy drink we were expecting.
However, if you make your own smoothies at home, then you can control exactly what goes into them. This vegan smoothie recipe is full of antioxidants and good fats for a truly healthy drink.
It includes the superfood mix “Turmeric Matcha” which is a powerhouse of antioxidants, combining turmeric and matcha powder. Turmeric contains the active ingredient, curcumin, which has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. This is why it’s known in natural health circles for helping to mitigate a range of health conditions, including arthritis, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
And the matcha powder contains the potent antioxidant ECGC which also helps boost the metabolism, increase energy levels and protect the cardiovascular system.
Just one cup of this delicious smoothie will flood your body with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to help strengthen your immune system, protect your health, stabilize your mood and increase your energy levels!

Note: We have used Zen Green Tea’s Turmeric Matcha Mix in this recipe, which is a handcrafted blend of turmeric, matcha powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of black pepper. All the spices are high quality and blended with the right balance of black pepper, which helps the body absorb the antioxidants in the turmeric by up to 2000%. Super tasty and an easy way to load up antioxidants – it’s great for breakfast or any time of day!
