Mango & cauliflower smoothie with a turmeric twist

 

This smoothie is actually delicious. The inclusion of cauliflower adds in a good dose of pre-biotic power, it also includes turmeric. You can use fresh or powdered turmeric. Just remember to add a sprinkle of black pepper as this is needed to activate the active ingredient curcumin in turmeric

cup of frozen mango (can buy from the supermarket)
2-3 small florets of cauliflower

1/2 tsp of chopped turmeric or 1/2 tsp dried turmeric (made into a paste with a drop or two of water)
extra ice if needed
