I’ve always been a big fan of smoothies. They are easy to throw together for a quick and nutritious breakfast or afternoon snack. My husband sometimes even requests them for dessert!

Just like with every meal I prepare, I want to get the biggest nutritional punch I can from every smoothie I make. My Golden Mango Smoothie has become one of my go-to favorites recently due to three special ingredients: turmeric, ginger, and gelatin. Before we get to the recipe for this power-packed smoothie, let’s talk about why I love turmeric, ginger, and gelatin so much.

Turmeric is a small root that is an absolutely gorgeous yellow/orange color thanks to curcumin, the primary polyphenol in this lovely root. Turmeric has been a part of the world’s culinary scene as well as used medicinally for ages! Jessica discusses 21 Health Benefits of Turmeric in this article and I discuss the digestive/immune system benefits of turmeric in my recipe for Elderberry Gummies with Ginger and Turmeric.

Recently, I’ve been intrigued by the use of turmeric (curcumin in particular) for its anti-inflammatory properties as well as its potential role in joint health. As a physical therapist, nearly every day I am asked what is the best anti-inflammatory by people suffering from orthopedic issues. From back pain to arthritis, many patients want to know – is there a natural alternative to prescription or over-the-counter pain medication? Yes! Supplement with turmeric. I have had three patients in the past several months give turmeric supplementation a try and each of them felt a noticeable improvement in their chronic pain symptoms. I have used turmeric in the past to aid in recovery from an ache or strain with great results.

Ginger is another potent anti-inflammatory root! Great for joint health and digestion, I eat it several times a week. As an added bonus in this recipe, it adds a zinginess to the smoothie that compliments the mango and turmeric flavors.

Finally, there is gelatin. I never make a smoothie without adding in some gelatin. It adds a good amount of protein, it’s tasteless, and it also supports healthy joints! Check out this article for more information on the role of gelatin in joint health or Jessica’s post, 10 Health Benefits of Gelatin.
