This anti-inflammatory smoothie contains both turmeric and ginger – two roots famously known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Adding a pinch of black pepper helps to ensure that the turmeric is absorbed. Are you ready to become a smoothie master in 2017? The trick is always to come up with a combination that produces a unique flavor, texture, and nutrient profile all at once. All of the amazing healthful ingredients in this healthy anti-inflammatory smoothie are simple enough, yet when combined they have a unique bubblegum taste. You will love it.


  • 3 bananas + 1 frozen banana (for creaminess; all ripe)
  • 3 passion fruits
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder, or a piece of turmeric root
  • a pinch of black pepper (to better absorb the turmeric)
  • small piece of ginger root (up to you — I like it spicy so I add a lot!)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Medjoul dates (optional)


  1. Blend until smooth


Like any smoothie recipe, feel free to add a handful of greens of your choice to make it even more nutritious.
