Summer is coming to an end, but before it goes I want to share a fresh, tropical smoothie recipe with you. Smoothies are all around great drinks, and best of all the variety is endless. They range from the super healthy to the not so healthy. Today’s recipe is a healthy smoothie, but you wouldn’t know it unless I told you.
This pineapple mango anti-inflammatory smoothie is creamy, slightly sweet, and refreshing. It’s made with the goodness of coconut milk, pineapple, and mango while the anti-inflammatory properties come from the turmeric. The papaya seed powder keeps the immune system and digestive tract healthy which plays a role in lowering the body’s anti-inflammatory responses. Turmeric and papaya seed powder both have big health benefits and adding them to a smoothie is a fantastic way to get them into your diet.
The pineapple mango anti-inflammatory smoothie only take a few minutes to make. It doesn’t require any ice so even a small blender will work. That makes clean up a breeze!
Make the Smoothie:
Place the coconut milk, frozen pineapple, frozen mango, papaya seed powder, turmeric, and honey into the blender. Blend until smooth then pour into a tall glass. Add your favorite straw and enjoy.
Living a healthy lifestyle can’t get much easier than that! 🙂 Because this recipe uses frozen fruit, you can enjoy it year round.
