Sunrise Smoothie

At the beginning of Quarantine Phase 1 I started incorporating ginger and turmeric into as many things as possible. I was super paranoid about boosting my immune system. At one point I bought a pineapple and then let it sit on the counter for a little too long. Since it was super ripe and I couldn’t eat it all at once, I froze a large majority of it. The next week I did the same thing with some mangoes. I thought they would be good in some sort of tropical smoothie or beverage. Since I was obsessed with ginger (still kind of am) I threw a bunch of smoothie ingredients together to make this super yummy tropical smoothie.

I called it the sunrise smoothie because of the color. The turmeric, mango, and pineapple give this smoothie a bright and cheery color. I started adding frozen cauliflower to make it a little thicker. It works just fine without the cauliflower and actually blends a little better. I have a Vitamix so usually I use the smoothie setting and then blend for a few more seconds on high (especially if I have added the cauliflower).
