Anti-Inflammation Pineapple Pink Smoothie Did you know that inflammation is the cause of many issues — from sadness to serious illness? So I decided to put at least one anti-inflammatory smoothie into my daily regime. Of course, the usually suspects that fight inflammation are well known – broccoli, spinach, sweet potato, papaya, berries, turmeric, apple cider vinegar, garlic, ginger, pineapple, cucumber, parsley and more. And of course I can’t put all those into one smoothie, so I decided to opt for the fruit flavor today. Interested in my turmeric latte, also a great anti-inflammation fighter? Find my recipe here. Meanwhile, let’s get on with the inflammation-fighting smoothie, shall we?
makes about 3-cup smoothie mixture
- 2 cups plant yogurt
- 2 tbsp tart cherry juice
- 2 tbsps chia seeds
- 1 inch chunk peeled ginger
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 cup iced water
- 1/2 cup pineapple
- 1/2 cup strawberries (for variation, use blueberries or blackberries)
Blend all, divide into three portions. One portion is white, blend the pinepple into a second portion to create yellow, and blend strawberries into a third portion to create pink build a layered parfait and enjoy chilled! Super inflammation fighter, I promise!
