Anti-inflammatory spinach and cherry smoothie

View recipe

This healthy smoothie is not only delicious, but it also increases your daily dose of anti-inflammatory foods. It starts with a base of creamy, gut-friendly kefir and includes cherries, which may lower the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein. The heart-healthy fats in avocados, almond butter and chia seeds provide additional anti-inflammatory compounds to the body, while spinach offers a mix of antioxidants that scavenge harmful free radicals. Fresh ginger adds zing, as well as a compound called gingerol, which preliminary studies show may improve inflammatory markers of heart disease when consumed daily.
