Coconut Ginger Smoothie

Since I’m on a mission to heal the inflammation in my body and rid of the pain associated with it, I’m making a variety of smoothies with different benefits.  This one gives me the anti-inflammatory properties from the ginger, strawberries and cinnamon, plus the coconut milk aids in digestion, heart health and muscle health.  At our age, it’s important to give our heart and muscles a little extra attention and care, so I like this smoothie for those reasons.

Just a fun bit of information about cinnamon…  It’s a natural breath freshener!  So go have that garlic-y, onion-y lunch then drink one of these smoothies for an afternoon breath refresher!

In the container of your blender, add the peeled and chopped fresh ginger, strawberries, banana, coconut milk and cinnamon.  Blend until smooth and silky.

A couple tips:  1.  For a thick smoothie, use frozen fruit.  2.  You can substitute the strawberries with other berries such as: blueberries, raspberries or blackberries for the same health benefits.
