Anti Inflammatory Smoothie 

Happy Bones Smoothie Turmeric Ginger  Smoothie with Coconut Oil today I added some pineapple to 😊
With six potent ingredients, this powerful smoothie packs an antioxidant blend of turmeric, ginger, coconut milk and chia seeds.


2 cups unsweetened coconut milk

* 1 t turmeric

* 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil, softened

* 2 Tablespoons Raw or Manuka honey

* 2 teaspoons ginger, peeled and chopped

* 1 t chia seeds optional

* 1 cup ice, optional


* Combine ice, coconut milk, turmeric, coconut oil, honey and ginger in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth and icy.

Pour into a glass and stir in chia seeds. Wait a few minutes before drinking to allow chia seeds to bloom slightly.
You can also add
* 1/2 banana provides potassium and adds fiber & folate, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B6, all of which help to battle back arthritis and keep your symptoms to a minimum. Not only that but you’re getting the fiber from a banana, which can help your digestive system and help you be healthier overall.

* 1/2 cup diced mango adds vitamin C and Vitamin E in healthy doses, and contain beta Carotene which you can tell by their distinct color. This has been shown to help keep some types of arthritis from getting worse.

* 1/2 cup pineapple Bromelain, a protein-digesting enzyme in this tropical fruit, is surprisingly good at bringing down inflammation
