This anti-inflammatory smoothie contains both turmeric and ginger – two roots famously known for their anti-inflammatory properties. I add a pinch of black pepper to make sure that the turmeric is absorbed.

In this anti-inflammatory smoothie, I also included passion fruit. Passion fruit is an incredible fruit. It tastes tart and sweet at the same time. While very expensive because not many grow it, it’s very easy to grow in your backyard. 

What I love about smoothies so much is that they are actually very simple. Just a few ingredients can create that miracle flavor, and so full of nutrition. The trick is always to come up with a combination that produces a unique flavor, texture, and nutrient profile all at once. 

All of these amazing healthful ingredients combined are simple enough, yet they make this healthy anti-inflammatory smoothie taste just like bubblegum. You will love it.
