Turmeric and aloe vera anti-inflammatory smoothie

antiinflammatory smoothie | healthy smoothie for joint pain | aloe vera smoothie | turmeric smoothie

Personally, and I’m sure you can relate, taking my supplements individually has been a real challenge. Lately I have been very creative with my smoothies and adding them to smoothies have been really helpful.

 

Two of the top supplements that I absolutely HAVE to take everyday are: turmeric and Aloe vera. I buy the MegaFood Daily Turmeric Booster Powder supplement simply because it is nicely flavored with fruit extracts and is simple to blend or mix in with juice and easily absorbed into the body. I am sure powdered or fresh turmeric would work just fine.

 

I started incorporating Aloe vera this year, after learning about the amazing benefits of its properties to help fight inflammation. Since then I have been taking it almost every day.  The taste is not that bad if you prefer to mix it with water. I prefer to put about 3 tbsp of aloe vera gel in my smoothie and I don’t notice it at all.

What do you get when you mix in turmeric and Aloe in a  smoothie? A Mega Super anti-inflammatory smoothie 😉

    I didn’t see how much turmeric powder to use.

    Can you mix turmeric powder, aloe Vera juice in water & add any fruits you have on hand?

      Hi Mary,
      I didn’t add because it is totally up to you. I personally use one scoop to 2 max (the product mentioned comes with a scoop) which is about 1 tsp to 1.5. And yess you can totally mix it with anything you want. I have tried it with just water, in carrot juice and also other type of smoothies 🙂 I also had just aloe vera and water and it’s almost tasteless.
