Wild Blueberry Turmeric Smoothie
Prevent inflammation and recover faster with this easy drink recipe.
Wild blueberries contain two times the antioxidants of regular, cultivated ones. “They make a great addition to your post-workout smoothie,” says Kara Lydon, a nutritionist and yoga instructor based in Boston. "Black pepper in a smoothie may seem surprising, but it can actually help increase the absorption of curcumin, the active anti-inflammatory ingredient in turmeric,” she adds.
- 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (or ¼ teaspoon ground)
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- Pinch of black pepper
- 1 ½ cups almond milk
In a food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
