3 Smoothies That Will Help You Combat Inflammation

3 Smoothies That Will Help You Combat Inflammation

Summer is coming to an end and it’s back to our daily routine. Most of us take a break from our nutrition regimens during the summer, which can leave us feeling a bit off. Fatigue, digestive troubles, headaches, and skin rashes can all be attributed to the inflammation caused by consuming a lot of red meat, processed foods, and alcohol. To combat inflammation, it is wise to focus on anti-inflammatory foods and one of the easiest ways to introduce them into your diet is through smoothies.

Here are the recipes for my 3 favorite anti-inflammatory smoothies:

Green Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 handful spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 2 celery sticks
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Serves 2 with 243 calories per serving

Turmeric Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of frozen mango cubes
  • 1 cup sliced cucumbers
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger
  • Half a teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 cup of water

Serves 2 with 59 calories per serving

Leafy Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pineapple cubes
  • 1 handful of kale
  • 1 handful of romaine lettuce
  • 1 handful of coriander
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger

Serves 2 with 110 calories per serving

Great for breakfast or as an afternoon snack, these smoothies are loaded with vitamins and minerals and low in sugar because they contain more vegetables and less fruit. Beware of smoothies that contain lots of fruit as they can be loaded in sugar, and therefore calories, and lower in fiber due to the high-speed blending process.
