Anti-inflammatory Smoothie Recipes

Updated: Mar 27


One of my Healthy Habits Living rituals is to have an anti-inflammatory stress busting smoothie for breakfast or lunch each day. This ritual will give you the energy and nutrients your body and mind needs in order to fuel your metabolism and meet your nutrient requirements. Plus it takes just minutes to do. If you prefer to have your smoothie for dinner on some days, that is fine too!

Ginger Smoothie (Serves 1)


1 scoop protein powder

2 inch piece of ginger (peeled)

2 cups of leafy greens (kale, collards, romaine, spinach, chard, etc.)

1 cup of celery

1 cup of mixed frozen berries of your choice (strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, etc)

1⁄4 soft avocado

1⁄2 cup filtered water

Instructions: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Carrot Ginger Turmeric Smoothie (Serves 2)


Carrot Juice:

2 cups carrots

1 1/2 cups filtered water

Smoothie:

1 large ripe banana, previously peeled, sliced and frozen

1 cup frozen or fresh pineapple

1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger

1/4 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 cup carrot juice

Juice of 1⁄2 small lemon

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 scoop protein powder

Instructions: Make carrot juice by adding carrots and filtered water to a high speed blender and blending on high until completely pureed and smooth. Add more water if it has trouble blending / scrape down sides as needed. Drape a large, thin dish towel over a mixing bowl and pour over the juice. Then lift up on the corners of the towel and begin twisting and squeezing the juice out until all of the liquid is extracted. Set aside pulp. Transfer carrot juice to a mason jar - will keep for several days, though best when fresh.

To the blender add smoothie ingredients and blend on high until creamy and smooth. Add more carrot juice or almond milk if it has trouble blending. Scrape down sides as needed.

Taste and adjust flavours as needed, adding more banana or pineapple for sweetness, lemon for acidity, ginger for bite, and turmeric for warmth. Divide between two glasses and serve.

Pineapple Coconut Smoothie (Serves 1)


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 chia or flaxseeds

1 tablespoon or scoop protein powder

1/2 cup ice to blend


Instructions: Combine pineapple, water, turmeric, ginger and ice. Blend until smooth and creamy.


Watermelon and Mixed Berries Smoothie (Serves 1)


1 heaping cup watermelon chunks

1 1⁄2 cups frozen mixed berries

1 inch piece ginger, peeled and chopped (if you’re using a conventional blender, you may wish to grate the ginger before adding it, so that it blends more easily)

3⁄4 cup coconut water

2 teaspoons chia seeds

1 scoop protein powder

1⁄4 avocado


Instructions: Blend all ingredients and serve.
