My Orange, Ginger & Turmeric Smoothie recipe is immune boosting, anti-inflammatory and practically has super powers!  

Anti Inflamatory Orange, Ginger & Turmeric Smoothie recipe

Hi guys,

Every time I turn on the news I get a little more panicky about the flu.  As someone who has had a life long history of always catching whatever is going around (I even caught the swine flu… which I affectionately called the pig flu)… I’m on a mission to stay healthy this season.  I’ve been washing my hands like crazy and telling the Hubs to do the same since he works at a regular office.  I have a tendency to get a little paranoid about this kind of thing, but I figure as bad as it sounds you can never be too careful.

Another thing I’m doing is trying to make sure I’m eating and drinking as many vitamins and superfoods as I can.  That’s where this Orange, Ginger & Turmeric Smoothie recipe comes into play… it’s basically my attempt to ward off the crud!  This connection not only has a crazy amount of vitamins, but it’s also pretty darn tasty!

My smoothie is packed with immune boosting vitamin C from an entire orange.  I also packed in some carrots, which can also improve your immunity, fight cancer and of course help your eyes!  To give the smoothie more sweetness I added some pineapple, which also is a great fruit to boost your immune system.  So basically right off the bat you’ve got a triple WHAMMY of vitamin C fun.

Basically my Orange, Ginger & Turmeric Smoothie recipe gives your immune system super powers.

I also added two more unique ingredients to this smoothie which help with all kind of things including reducing inflammation… ginger and turmeric!  Both of these foods are filled with antioxidants which help your body stay healthy.  If your body has inflammation (must of us do!) you are more likely to have chronic health problems so finding ways to reduce it can improve your overall health so much.

Plus the ginger adds a subtly spice to the smoothie, which I love!

This smoothie is an all around winner… it looks like an orange dream… it takes amazing AND it’s filled with all sorts of goodness to fight off the flu, a cold or whatever other crud you come in contact with.

    I am terrified when it comes to the flu so you know I will be making this ASAP. I love the addition of tumeric

    This sounds super delicious! I have not yet thought to put carrots in my smoothie – great idea. I also just learned that people who are plant based should have some sort of vitamin C at every meal to help them absorb iron better, so I’ll be drinking this lots!
    I hope your immune system stays strong girl!

    This is such an awesome combo! Eek! I remember when the swine flu was going around – but I didn’t know anyone who actually caught it! Did you end up in hospital? Or was it just awful?

  16. wow love that bright orange color! Looks amazingly fresh

    I am a huge fan of anything anti-inflammatory in my smoothies! Just made one with chai tea, coconut milk, ginger, and turmeric. I’m going to add yours to my collection!

    This looks so refreshing! I’ve heard that tumeric has so many benefits – so smart to incorporate it into a smoothie!

    I would have never thought to add a carrot to a smoothie! Now I want to try that out next time I make one. This looks like the perfect sweet treat that’s healthy too.

    I absolutely love anything that includes ginger and turmeric. I’ve never thought to pair them with orange, but I’ll have to give it a try!
    I also had swine flu—isn’t that nuts? You are the first actual person I’ve encountered that also had it. I had some awful respiratory illness end of December that left me with a week-long high fever, but other than that I’ve been pretty lucky. Hopefully the worst is over!
    Stay well!
