These anti-inflammatory green smoothies are intended for people on a low sugar, anti-inflammatory diet but who still cannot live without that aromatic flavor and taste of fruits.

Anti-inflammatory Green Smoothies With Health Benefits

The purpose of consuming anti-inflammatory smoothies is to promote a faster healing and build healthy long term habits.

Other reasons to consume green smoothies:

  • Get all your vitamins and minerals without having to resort to a salad every single day, consider blending the greens into a tasty satisfying anti-inflammatory green smoothie.
  • It’s also a great way to supply your organism with fiber, antioxidants and enzymes. You will feel comfortably full after a drink like this.  
  • Dark leafy greens will help your body get rid of toxins, excess weight, sugar cravings, addictions, renew and repair your skin. And as a result – reduce inflammation, which is at the root of nearly all modern diseases.
  • It will make a major difference to your energy levels. You will no longer need to resort to stimulating drinks.

Anti-inflammatory Green Smoothies With Low Glycemic Index

Usually things like juice and sweet smoothies aren’t always the best choice if you’re trying to limit your sugar intake. Even if they’re made with natural ingredients, they can still rate highly on the glycemic index.

Make your greens smoothies also low glycemic (less sucrose/ sugar): my version of anti-inflammatory green smoothies is 60% veggie and 40% fruit (with low glycemic index fruits).

These fruits include berries, papaya (not too ripe), cherries, grapefruit, pears, apples, plums, peaches, nectarines, avocado, they all pair well with greens.

Tips For Making Anti-inflammatory Green Smoothies

  • It is not recommended to mix fruits with other starchy vegetables, they take different amount of time to be digested and can cause fermentation in your gut and as a result gas. This is essential if you are in the phase of healing your gut. Apple is an exception. 
  • Including a source of healthy fat, such as nuts, nut butters, avocados, chia seeds, flax seeds or flax oil, hemp seeds, hemp oil, coconut oil, will help your body absorb the fat-soluble vitamins. 
  • For an extra power to fight an infection or enhance cellular function, consider adding more green superfoods like spirulina. It is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet due to high concentrations of proteins, vitamins and nutrients (studied extensively by NASA as a food source for long-term space missions). It’s important to choose a product that is non-irradiated (irradiated are nutritionally inferior) tested to be free of contaminates such as heavy metals, algae toxins & microbiological contaminates, pesticides and other chemicals. My favorite is this one
  • Use turmeric or ginger both fabulous anti-inflammatory agents. Note: you need to take quite a lot of turmeric powder in order to see anti-inflammatory effects (about 500 to 1,000 mg of curcuminoids per day. In one teaspoon of fresh or ground turmeric are only 200 mg of curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric). In this case it might be more convenient to take turmeric capsules.
  • Choose greens that are highly anti-inflammatory and cleansing like: dandelions, parsley, kale, collard greens, spinach (if you are not oxalate sensitive), broccoli, carrot green tops, beet root tops, cilantro. If you have high levels of heavy metals be careful with cilantro as it releases heavy metals in the bloodstream. And if there is no binder (like chlorella) to be excreted with, it can be reabsorbed and cause serious side effects.

Customize Your Anti-inflammatory Green Smoothies

The truth is, you can make almost any smoothie a green anti-inflammatory smoothie by tossing a handful or two of greens in, that’s what I usually do.

For me a smoothie is not that healthy if it doesn’t have greens in it! The end result might look not so delicious (I mean the color), but it’ll taste delicious.

When I’m making anti-inflammatory green smoothies I also try to avoid fruits and ingredients that my gut is sensitive to. For me these are citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, grapefruits and limes. I get immediate but mild skin-based reactions. So avoiding them is the best way to help the body heal.

Customize your anti-inflammatory smoothies based on how you body reacts and how you feel. If you don’t get bloated and feel good then go ahead and make it a habit!
