There are plenty of mangoes and strawberries out there, right? This is the season to indulge in fresh berries, fruits and produce. I have gone as organic as possible…especially, when I know that I’m going to eat something in their raw form, I try to buy them organic, like, spinach, berries and fruits.

I usually make a smoothie for breakfast, at least 5 days a week. And nothing can be easier than that. All you do is, throw in fresh fruits and vegetables and blend them. To add sugar or honey or any other sweetener is a personal choice, really.

I usually don’t add any sugar in my smoothies since, the fruits and berries are very sweet to begin with. But when you are making a mango smoothie and its not as sweet as you want it to be, you can go ahead and add some honey to your smoothie. Its healthy and tastes great.

Feel free to add flax seeds or nuts like almonds, pistachios as well. You can make it as healthy as you wish. I added a pinch of turmeric in it. Turmeric is the new wonder spice. no?

Some days, I add non-fat yogurt and some days, I just blend my fruits like that. Both are delicious.

In this Mango-Strawberry-Turmeric Smoothie, I have kept it simple by not adding anything extra. I really didn’t want to dilute the taste of fresh fruits.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
