Turmeric & Ginger Smoothie

turmeric & ginger smoothie

This might sound an unusual combination of ingredients but trust me this low FODMAP smoothie is definitely worth a try! It’s such a warming breakfast thanks to the heat of the turmeric ginger which is complemented perfectly by the sweetness of the banana and coconut. Plus it has amazing health benefits! Ginger is great for relieving symptoms of a sensitive gut and turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

If you are new to adding turmeric and ginger to your breakfast then maybe add ½ each of the turmeric and ginger then adjust to your taste. I have in the past found some turmeric to be overly bitter but in this recipe I used Indigo Herbs turmeric powder which wasn’t bitter at all. It comes in a convenient resealable pouch and is the most beautiful yellow colour!



1 banana

250ml unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp Indigo Herbs turmeric powder

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tbsp smooth peanut butter

½ tbsp desiccated coconut

½ tsp vanilla extract

Optional extra:

1 scoop unflavoured vegan protein powder (or vanilla flavour but then omit the vanilla extract)


  • Simply add all the ingredients to a blender and whizz it all up until smooth
  • Enjoy!
