The kale, hemp seeds and green tea in this bright, lemony smoothie all contain antioxidants that help fight inflammation. If you can’t find baby kale, baby spinach will work well in its place. Banana adds natural sweetness. If you want something a little sweeter, just a touch of honey will do.

Strawberry-Banana Green Smoothie

This green smoothie recipe is sweetened only with fruit and gets an extra dose of healthy omega-3s from flaxseeds.

Red lentils give this smoothie a plant-based protein boost. To make this smoothie vegan, try using unsweetened coconut beverage or almond milk instead of dairy milk.

Strawberry-Pineapple Smoothie

Blend almond milk, strawberries and pineapple for a smoothie so easy you can whip it up on busy mornings. A little almond butter adds richness and filling protein. Freeze some of the almond milk for an extra icy texture.

Anti-Inflammatory Beet Smoothie

This colorful beet smoothie combines sweet, earthy beets with berries, banana and orange juice for a balanced flavor. Look for packaged cooked beets where prepared fruits and vegetables are sold. Beets are high in belatins, an antioxidant that can help reduce inflammation in the body. Other nutrient-dense ingredients add even more anti-inflammatory power, such as the anthocyanins in blueberries and the gingerol found in ginger.

Mango Raspberry Smoothie

Ali Redmond

A squeeze of lemon juice adds bright flavor to this frozen fruit smoothie. Mango provides plenty of sweetness without having to add juice, but if it’s too tart for you, a touch of agave will do the trick.

Creamy Strawberry Smoothie
