Anti-Inflammatory Cranberry Smoothie Recipe

Cranberries, papaya, chia seeds, ginger and turmeric have extraordinary antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. There's a great way to get all of these amazing benefits in one meal!

Here’s the recipe for my anti-inflammatory cranberry smoothie:

Ingredients:

Yields: 2 servings
  • 1 cup of cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup of ripe papaya (cut in cubes)
  • 3 frozen bananas
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped or minced ginger
  • Dash of turmeric powder
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Half tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1.5 cup water
Directions:

Soak chia seeds in half a cup of water, for at least 30 minutes. Add soaked chia seeds and the rest of the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.

Tips:

If you happen to be using frozen cranberries and frozen papaya, then use fresh bananas instead of frozen. Also, if you're making this smoothie in winter, thaw the frozen fruit or use fresh.
