Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie Bowl

Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie Bowl

The consistency of this smoothie bowl is thick and reminiscent of frozen soft serve, making it a perfect breakfast option during warm summer months. Besides helping you cool off, these Smoothie Bowls are also hydrating and packs an antioxidant punch. 

The smoothie contains pineapple and fresh ginger, which are powerful anti-inflammatory foods thanks to their antioxidant content. Pineapple is a rich source of vitamin C, flavonoids, and phenols, important antioxidants for the immune system and skin health. It also contains an enzyme called bromelain that promotes healthy digestion. 

Ginger contains gingerol a powerful antioxidant responsible for many of ginger’s health properties. Ginger helps relieve many common digestive ailments and may help relieve muscle aches and pain. 

Chia seeds help thicken the smoothie and are a good source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

            I love the turmeric and curcumin! It allowed me to put off total shoulder replacement surgery for 8 months…as my shoulder dislocates I finally have to have it. That being said, I needed the pain relief to have the time to work out the logistics for after surgery care and I thank you for that and your wonderful product!

            What to use in place of coconut milk? Not everyone likes or uses it. My husband for one.
