Probiotic kefir (like a runny yogurt) is excellent for gut health, and turmeric adds an anti-inflammatory boost, not to mention a slightly peppery flavor note. If you can't find kefir, use plain yogurt; ground ginger stands in perfectly for the turmeric.


  • 1 cup plain kefir

  • ¾ cup bottled coconut water or tap water

  • 1 ½ cups frozen mango chunks (from a 12-ounce package)

  • 1 cup frozen, very ripe banana slices (from 1 banana)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

  • Pinch of kosher salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender, starting with kefir and coconut water. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.
