Hot Tropic

Ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon, oh my! This recipe has powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients like spices and coconut oil. Ginger contains gingerol and turmeric contains curcumin, each shown to possess anti-inflammatory properties. Black pepper isn't usually the first ingredient someone would add to a smoothie, but it contains potassium and helps make the curcumin more effective. Besides, you'll hardly notice it thanks to the sweetness of the mango and banana!
