Jackie’s Natural Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie with Tumeric, Pineapple, Walnuts & Ginger

January 13, 2017

I try to pack as much good stuff in my morning smoothie glass as humanly possible. ¬†I don’t take a multi-vitamin, supplement or any other pills (except the little blue one! ūüėú) because I try to get everything my body needs from the foods I eat.

I am allergic to anti-inflammatory drugs.  Go figure.  I know.  As much as I work out and demand of my body, a sister would love to take a ibuprofen every now and again, but it makes me short of breath and causes red hives around my eyes.   My regular readers know I am much too vain for those side-effects.   Because of my allergy, I have researched foods that will naturally ease sore, agitated muscles and reduce swelling:  Tumeric, Pineapple, Walnuts  &  Ginger.

Walk into your day knowing that this smoothie is soothing your muscles, jump starting your metabolism and packing your body with all the mult-vitamins and nutrients you need to crush your goals!

Instructions

  1. Put everything in order listed in a Vitamix or other high-powered blender.  If using a Vitamix, choose 'Frozen Desserts' setting and let that magic machine do the work!  Once the blender stops, check the consistency.  Add more water if you prefer a thinner smoothie or more ice if you prefer it frothier.
