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.

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

    Thank you!

    Hey Amanda,

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

    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

    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

    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
