Herbal Smoothies to Beat Inflammation

Herbal Smoothies to Beat Inflammation

 

Inflammation is at the root of so many physical ailments, from joint pain to acne to brain degeneration. Maintaining an anti-inflammatory diet will help you to stay healthy, happy, and ailment-free. Thankfully, it’s really easy to do! These three smoothies are high in anti-inflammatory herbs, seeds (like flaxseeds), nuts (like walnuts), and berries (which fight inflammation through compounds called anthocyanins). Make these smoothies as-is, or experiment with new flavor combinations! Each of these smoothies serves 2-4.

 

Smoothie 1:

2 cups cold-brewed Joyful Garden

1 cup Walnuts, soaked and drained several times over 8+ hours

1 cup Baby Spinach or Kale

2 frozen Bananas

1⁄2 cup Blueberries

2 teaspoons ground Chia Seeds

 

Blend the Joyful Garden tea with the walnuts in a high-speed blender, and strain through a nut-milk bag (you can dehydrate the pulp and turn it into a nut flour for baking, if you like). Rinse out the blender and add back the nut milk you just made with the other ingredients, and blend until smooth.

  

 

Smoothie 2:

2 cups cold-brewed Happy Place

3 frozen Bananas

3 Medjool Dates, pitted  

2 tbsp. Almond Butter

3 tbsp. Flaxseed, ground

1 cup Baby Spinach

 

Blend all ingredients together until smooth.

 

 

Smoothie 3: 

2 cups cold-brewed Strawberry Kiss

1 cup Walnuts, soaked and drained several times over 8+ hours

1 cup ripe Strawberries

2 tbsp. Goji Berries

2 frozen Bananas

2 tbsp. Hemp Seeds

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

 

Blend the Strawberry Kiss tea with the walnuts in a high-speed blender, and strain through a nut-milk bag (you can dehydrate the pulp and turn it into a nut flour for baking, if you like). Rinse out the blender and add back the nut milk you just made with the other ingredients, and blend until smooth.

Even though they look different in your cup, and taste different in your mouth, the tea leaves are all harvested from the tea plant: Camellia sinensis. But no matter how the leaves are processed, they all have one thing in common: they contain tannins, the compound that can make your tea taste bitter.
