What's great about it
This is a smoothie I designed for myself to help reduce inflammation in the body. I can feel it's anti-inflammatory effects as soon as I drink it and I love the fact that it tastes great too. I've made this smoothie a part of my breakfast regime and sometimes throw in extra boosters such as macadamia nuts or Healthy Chef Protein to make it a complete and delicious meal.
1 cup sweet ripe pineapple, cut into chunks
1 cup water, coconut water or cold green tea
1 teaspoon fresh turmeric or 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder
1 small slice of ginger
1 teaspoon Natural immune Support
1 teaspoon chia or flaxseeds
Add 1 tablespoons Healthy Chef Protein (optional)
1/2 cup ice to blend
- Combine pineapple, water, turmeric, ginger, Natural Immune Support and ice.
- Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Pour into a serving glass and enjoy.
Notes and Inspiration
Add 1 frozen banana for creaminess and a potassium boost.
Use homemade almond milk in place of water.
Add a sprinkle of macadamia nuts or a spoon of coconut butter to add essential fatty acids and reduce inflammation.
Add a spoonful of Healthy Chef Protein to help nourish the body and support a healthy immune system.
Add 1 teaspoon of bee pollen or rosehip powder to boost the anti-inflammatory benefits.
