Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie + Foods That Fight Inflammation


Give this Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie (that’s really purple!) a try to help heal and calm the body.
Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie Recipe | Simple Green Smoothies
Over the last few years, many studies have shown that inflammation contributes to a number of health conditions and symptoms. Things like skin rashes, digestive troubles, headaches and migraines, brain fog, fatigue, and more can often be attributed to inflammation.

The foods that cause inflammation won’t surprise you.  Red meat, processed and preserved meats and sausage, dairy, gluten and white flours/starches, refined sugar, and preservatives top the list. A diet rich in these potent foods will most likely cause you to feel cruddy anyway. If you’re susceptible to inflammation, these things can make symptoms even worse.

Anti-Inflammatory Green Smoothie

What can you do? Consume a diet that is full of foods that fight inflammation is a good place to start.

Focus on foods that are very similar to a Mediterranean diet,  making it super doable for most people in the western world. Heck, I can get all of these things at my local grocery store! It’s hard to make excuses when it’s accessible, right? Here’s the list to focus on:

  • tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • leafy greens + cruciferous veggies
  • fruit, berries + other low glycemic fruits
  • citrus – lemons and oranges
  • fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids – salmon, sardines, mackerel
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • turmeric

Anti-inflammatory Smoothie

Green smoothies can help tremendously if you’re struggling to add anti-inflammatory foods to your diet. I’m combine quite a few of the ingredients listed above into this smoothie recipe. It’s nutrient-packed and makes the perfect anti-inflammatory smoothie.  If you haven’t been a smoothie fan yet, I hope this will make you reconsider. Smoothies are easy to make, consume, and even take with you.

    Hi,i have one question and i wanna know what do you think about it,i heard some rumors that when you blend your food you lose fiber and nutrition from it,personally i dont believe in that especially if you use a high power blender that can blend all food in 30s,i searched on internet and i cant find any studies that confirm that rumors,but i want to know your thoughts about it 🙂

    Hi Strahinja,

    Great question! We do believe that nutrients begin to “go away” and oxalate, but we don’t believe this happens right away. Our stance is that green smoothies stay good for you for up to two days, as long as they are in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

    And while some nutrients may oxalate before you finish your green smoothie. If green smoothies help you add leafy greens + healthy nutrients to your body, we say some nutrients are better than no nutrients at all. #win!

    Amanda, I’d like to make a correction to your reply to Strahinja. I believe you meant to say ‘oxidize’ instead of “oxalate” ~calcium oxalate is a crystal found often in urine and is a common cause of urinary/bladder/kidney stones.

    Respectfully, Joanna B.

    I tried this one today. It was first time I’ve used Kale. Having just completed the 10 day kickstart. I really enjoyed the kick the ginger gave it and I love fresh beetroot anyway. I had 2 servigs cos my hubby wasn’t keen. So now I’m stuffed like a little piggy 🙂

    Love your website and all the information! However, should there be a concern about the high levels of sugar and carbs that are in the recipes? How does this fit into an overall healthy lifestyle? THANKS

  6. SGS Rawkstar Amanda

    December 29th, 2017 at 11:31 am

    Hi J,

    Great question. Each smoothie has 3 cups of fruit in it, and it is recommended that an adult has 1.5 to 2 cups of fruit a day. When you drink 16oz of our green smoothie recipe you will be meeting, or just under your daily intake for fruit. If you feel like that is too much fruit, feel free to do 2 cups of fruit in each smoothie with 3 cups of leafy greens. Hope that helps. 🙂

    Can you use cows milk ?

  10. SGS Rawkstar Amanda

    January 22nd, 2018 at 1:59 pm

    Hi Villa,

    Great question! Dairy can be pretty tough on your digestion, for that reason you won’t find it in our recipes – especially our Anti-Inflammatory Green Smoothie above where we want to show your belly some extra love. Including dairy in your diet – is definitely a personal decision. For us here at Simple Green Smoothies we’ve found that diary doesn’t make our bodies feel great, and if you’re not reaching for organic milk you can find yourself drinking a lot of additives, and lastly – dairy is actually the #1 undiagnosed food allergy. Love dairy and the way it makes you feel? Then go for it – and try adding it to a green smoothie recipe. I’d just suggest skipping our Anti-Inflammatory Green Smoothie as this recipe specifically is designed to heal your gut!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Finding the time and
    actual effort to create a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t
    seem to get anything done.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your
    website? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hello,
    I would like to try this shake, but I have an allergy to pineapple. Do you have any recomendations for a replacement?

  28. Catherine Albaugh

    April 10th, 2019 at 10:03 am

    Mango is a good replacement for pineapple.

    Is the coconut oil an anti-inflammatory; was wondering if I can leave that out?

    Thank you!

  30. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    April 24th, 2019 at 12:03 pm

    Hey Amanda,

    Yes, the coconut oil is an anti-inflammatory so if you can tolerate it I would definitely keep that ingredient.

  31. Barbara Graham

    April 23rd, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Amanda, I know I have a lot of inflammation in my body. I have severe fibromyalgia and have been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. The above Smoothie looks great but I know it’s too much sugar for me so I see you said to substitute a cup of berries for another cup of greens. 1) will it be too bitter for a newcomer and what should I add or take away for my Fibromyalgia. and 2) is there a list of smoothies for my issues for variety?
    Thank you,
    Barbara in MD

  32. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    April 24th, 2019 at 12:17 pm

    Hey Barbara,

    You can always just add less of the fruit and more of the greens with this recipe instead of adding the berries. You can always add in some dates or honey to naturally sweeten it up a little.
    Also, since we are not nutritionist we do not have a specific recommendation for you but I would suggest sticking with these ingredients to fight the inflammation.

    Hope that helps!

    What blender do you use? I loved this, so tasty but need a large blender for 6 that makes the smooth smooth, I had lots of chunks from the beets and kale. Thanks

  34. Donna Sawchyn

    Hi Jen, just wondering if I have roasted the beets are they still beneficial in a smoothie? I assume you are using them raw. Thanks,
    Donna
