Wild blueberry turmeric smoothie

Prevent inflammation and recover faster with this easy drink recipe.

Wild blueberries contain two times the antioxidants of regular, cultivated ones. “They make a great addition to your post-workout smoothie,” says Kara Lydon, a nutritionist and yoga instructor based in Boston. "Black pepper in a smoothie may seem surprising, but it can actually help increase the absorption of curcumin, the active anti-inflammatory ingredient in turmeric,” she adds.

Serves Two


1 cup frozen wild blueberries
1 cup frozen mango
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (or ¼ teaspoon ground)
1 teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoons orange zest
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Pinch of black pepper
1 ½ cups almond milk



In a food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
