Mango Turmeric Smoothie Bowl
Wie is suffering from an injury at the moment, so she’s found something in her diet that can help her recover quicker. The golfer had surgery on her wrist in 2018 and by April 2019 needed more time off to recuperate. She says there is one meal that has really been helping her get on the road to recovery as quickly as possible, a mango and turmeric smoothie bowl.
The Benefits Of A Smoothie Bowl
Wie says she loves smoothie bowls in general because they are easy for her to digest right before she goes out to practice. Plus it’s really easy to pack in the right mixture of nutrients into one tasty meal. The secret ingredient in her smoothie bowls at the moment is turmeric because of its anti-inflammatory qualities.
Wie says she is always fighting against inflammation due to playing golf so often and the injuries she gets through that. Her recipe is the perfect boost for her body, and with the mango and banana, she says you don’t even taste the turmeric.
Make It Yourself
The recipe is pretty simple for this smoothie that is keeping this LPGA player as healthy as possible. Wie came up with the recipe herself, and it starts with some frozen fruit. First you throw in 1 ½ cups of frozen mangoes with a frozen banana and one teaspoon of turmeric golden milk powder.
Wie then adds a ½ scoop of vegan protein powder and ⅔ of a cup of coconut milk. Blitz all of that in a blender and top it off with unsweetened coconut flakes, dried goji berries, chia seeds, and refined sugar-free granola. Her final touch is to throw on some homemade cashew-walnut butter.
Eating like a professional athlete often requires a lot of commitment, but Michelle Wie’s recipe doesn’t take long and really helps your body recover quicker.
