Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory Smoothie Recipe

In my last post, I wrote about my recent inflammation in my thumb. Today, I started a conscious effort to include many more anti-inflammatory foods to my daily diet in order to combat some of this inflammation. Even if I find it provides no change in my thumb, at least I will be healthier in general!

I made this smoothie based on the foods I found online that could possibly provide some improvement in my inflammation and the ingredients I had available already in my kitchen. The smoothie was a nice brown color….not the most appealing, but it was tasty and nutritious.

“Inflammation No More” Smoothie (catchy name, right?)

  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries (I used a raspberry, blueberry, strawberry blend)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 TBS chia seeds
  • 5 drops of stevia (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup water (to make it to your preferred consistency)

Blend until smooth and enjoy. Makes one serving.
