Recipe: Anti-Inflammatory Superfood Smoothie

Brooke Slade

Starting your day with a smoothie is a great way to fill your stomach and meet your body's nutritional needs in very little time. This particular smoothie recipe caters to those looking to avoid inflammatory foods and address inflammation. Inflammation is the body's response to injury, stress, viruses, bacteria, toxins and more. A few of the ways it can show up in the body are:

  • swelling

  • fatigue

  • headaches

This recipe yields 12g of protein, 18g of fiber, antioxidants and adaptogens while providing a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory ingredients like cinnamon, turmeric, blueberries and raw oats.
