Here's our take on Paula Wolfert's daily "gritty"--the opposite of a smoothie thanks to all the nuts, seeds, and spices. The walnut-flaxseed combination adds 2,000mg omega-3s to this satisfying sip, along with a pleasantly nutty balance to the sweet mango and bright citrus. Yogurt lends tangy, good-for-the-gut probiotics, and fresh turmeric adds a bright, peppery zing. Some researchers say the curcumin in fresh turmeric is more bioavailable than dried, as some essential oils and pungency are lost in the drying process. We love it for its brighter, livelier flavor. If you can't find fresh root (a close relative to gingerroot), substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric.
Serves 2 (serving size: about 1 1/4 cups)
