Sore Muscle Summer Smoothie

With summer here and lots of gardening going on, I have some sore muscles. This anti-inflammatory smoothie does the trick and helping to relieve the pain. It also tastes good!

Julian's Sore Muscle Summer Smoothies
All ingredients are known to help to reduce inflammation in the body, and have a “cooling effect” as well. Pineapples have a long tradition as a medicinal plants, and are known known for their pain relieving enzyme bromelain.   Today I'm making a double batch, as shown above. Below recipe makes one drink.

As I noted in a prior posting, you do need a good quality blender to make smoothies. For more information on that read my post on Nija vs. Vitamix. I also give you some other great smoothie recipes on that page.

Ingredients
1 small rib celery
1 cup cucumber
1/2 cup pineapple
1/2 lime wedge (peeled and seeded)
1 cup coconut water

Instructions
Place all of the ingredients in your blender and select the "smoothie" option. Alternatively, select puree, which you may need to start and stop a couple times to ensure the ingredients are fully blended.
