Was concerned about the turmeric and amount of lemon but actually you don't really notice it. A really tasty smoothie that I and my 3 year old loved.

Love this smoothie - but then I'm a ginger fan! Used frozen banana to chill it, didn't use honey as I found it sweet enough - never heard of baobab powder, but looks very expensive!

Really sorry but none of us liked this at all - and we all love bananas and coconut! Maybe I completely messed this up (but it's not that difficult!!) but won't be making this again.
