Anti-Inflammatory Gut Health Smoothie

The key to an anti-inflammatory smoothie is turmeric and ginger, both of which do amazing things for your digestion.
  • Always add organic turmeric to smoothies
  • Turmeric is vital to anti-inflammation and I always recommend trying to supplement turmeric with black pepper in addition to putting it in smoothies.
  • Ginger is another great anti-inflammatory. Top tip - if peeling only peel very thinly as most of the goodness is located in the top layer.

Other health benefits to this smoothie

  • The chia seeds are great for getting a dose of gently absorbing soluble fibre.
  • Banana also has soluble fibre which is much gentler on the stomach. Remember this type of fibre is quite easy to digest
