Here are three cold drink recipes that incorporate ingredients known for their potential anti-inflammatory properties:

Pineapple and Ginger Smoothie:


  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1 small knob of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 cup coconut water or almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  1. Add the pineapple chunks, grated ginger, coconut water or almond milk, and honey (if desired) to a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and well combined.
  3. If desired, add ice cubes and blend again until the smoothie reaches your preferred consistency.
  4. Pour into a glass and enjoy.

Pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme with potential anti-inflammatory effects, while ginger is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Blueberry and Spinach Smoothie:


  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup almond milk or coconut water
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • Honey or maple syrup for sweetness (optional)


  1. Place the frozen blueberries, spinach leaves, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and almond milk or coconut water in a blender.
  2. Blend until all ingredients are well combined and smooth.
  3. If desired, add ice cubes and blend again to reach your desired consistency.
  4. Taste the smoothie and sweeten with honey or maple syrup if desired.
  5. Pour into a glass and enjoy.

Blueberries are rich in antioxidants, including anthocyanins, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Spinach is also packed with nutrients and has been associated with potential anti-inflammatory benefits.

Turmeric Golden Milk:


  • 1 cup almond milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • Pinch of black pepper (to enhance turmeric absorption)


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the almond milk or coconut milk over low heat.
  2. Add the ground turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, honey or maple syrup (if desired), and a pinch of black pepper.
  3. Whisk the mixture continuously until well combined and heated through.
  4. Pour the golden milk into a mug and enjoy it warm or let it cool in the refrigerator for a cold version.

Turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger all have potential anti-inflammatory properties, making this golden milk a soothing and potentially beneficial drink.

Remember, while these recipes incorporate ingredients that may have anti-inflammatory properties, individual responses may vary. It's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional regarding any specific health concerns or conditions you may have.
