This Anti-inflammatory Green Smoothie is not your average green smoothie! It’s packed with ingredients like berries and turmeric that may counteract inflammation in the body, making it a perfect post-workout choice. Chronic inflammation is also a major contributor to most chronic diseases, so this smoothie is wonderful any time of the day. Did I mention it’s also delicious?

Anti-inflammatory Ingredients


Berries like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries are one of the top anti-inflammatory foods you can eat. They contain polyphenols, specifically anthocyanins, that have anti-inflammatory effects. Eating more berries can lead to lower risk of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s.

Chia Seeds

These tiny but might seeds contain omega-3 essential fatty acids as well as antioxidants that help fight inflammation. Just 1-2 tablespoons per day can help you meet your ALA fatty acid needs.

Turmeric and Black Pepper

Turmeric is a spice with a long history as a medicinal food. It contains curcumin, a potent anti-inflammatory. Curcumin is linked to everything from accelerating exercise recovery to improving anxiety, metabolic syndrome, and arthritis. You’re probably wondering why the heck this recipe contains black pepper! Just a pinch of black pepper can increase the bioavailability of curcumin by as much as 2,000%! You won’t even taste it, I promise.


It wouldn’t be a green smoothie without some leafy greens. Dark leafy greens like spinach can help lower inflammation. Because spinach has a milder flavor compared to other dark leafy greens like kale, it goes almost undetected in this smoothie.
