An Erewhon copycat, this turmeric crush smoothie is made with carrot, mango, and pineapple smoothie tie-dyed with cherry or beet juice. It's not too sweet and has a fantastic spicy tropical flavour with the mango, pineapple, fresh turmeric, and ginger root. You can make your own juice or use store-bought.

For some more colourful smoothies, try my berry beet cauliflower smoothie, summery strawberry smoothie bowl, or mango pineapple smoothie.

If you have a juicer, all the better! If not, this can be made with store-bought juices.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

  • Carrot juice: I like to make my own with the lemon, orange, ginger and turmeric.
  • Beet juice: you can buy it or make it (I always juice a beet after the carrot juice) or use cherry juice instead. If buying, I like Biotta.
  • Turmeric: it's best to use fresh, but you can use half the amount of dried turmeric if you can't get it fresh.

Step by Step

Turmeric crush steps 1 to 4, mixing smoothie base and layering with juice.

Step 1: add all of the smoothie ingredients to a blender.

Step 2: blend until very smooth.

Step 3: add a tablespoon of beet juice, then top with half of the smoothie.

Step 4: add the second tablespoon of juice, then the rest of the smoothie.

Top Tips

  • Don't worry about juicing it all: for the smoothie pictured, I juiced orange and lemon by hand, and used store-bought carrot juice. I will usually juice the carrot, beets, and everything else at home but it works just as well to buy it.
  • Make it tie-dye: to make it look as nice as the photos, make sure to do the layering steps with the juice and smoothie.
  • Choose cherry: if you don't like the earthy flavour of beet juice, cherry is just as vibrant and tastes much fruitier.

What's in the Erewhon turmeric crush?

The ingredients are listed as organic carrot juice, organic orange juice, organic ginger juice, organic turmeric juice, organic mango, organic pineapple, organic camu camu, organic lemon juice, and organic beet juice.

Can I add protein powder or other powders?

This is more of a juicy smoothie, and I don't think protein powder would be great. You could definitely add some superfoods like sea buckthorn (frozen if you can get it, or powdered) if you want an extra boost.

  • Add 1 tablespoon of beet juice to a glass. Pour half the smoothie over the juice. Add another tablespoon of beet juice, then pour in the remaining smoothie. It will make the tie-dye effect on its own without any stirring. Serve immediately.
    2 tablespoon beet or tart cherry juice


You can make this two ways:
1. Use store-bought carrot juice and beet juice, and juice the orange and lemon by hand (you can also pop a whole peeled orange into the smoothie). You can also just use 1 to 1 ¼ cup of a ginger carrot orange juice from the grocery store.
2. I prefer to juice the carrots, lemon, orange, ginger, and turmeric together, then a beet separately, and make the smoothie from that.
