Anti-Inflammatory Mango Smoothie and CBD Oil 7 comments

Anti-Inflammatory-Mango-SmoothieIs pain normally a part of aging, or from past injuries? After reading some interesting articles and searching for how to get rid of pain, either through physical therapy or using OTC meds or even prescriptions I stumbled on a drink made of Mangos, Bananas, Turmeric powder, almond milk. I was all for trying the recipe as I can’t take ibuprofen as it started hurting my stomach, a good sign it’s a bad thing. I will do anything to alleviate the pain I am experiencing without the use of drugs. The natural way is the best way.

Turmeric comes from the root of the plant and is considered an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. In an article in 2018 (1) “Science has started to back up what Indians have known for a long time–it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties.” These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin.

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and a very strong antioxidant. However, the curcumin is best eaten with a fatty meal like my recipe has coconut oil for the body to absorb into the bloodstream, and I have read that adding “black pepper” helps the absorption of curcumin. (So to be clear, and not confusing, curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric.)

I’ve been looking for more alternative ways to help my pain, recently I had a flair up of Bursitis in my left leg while dealing with lower back pain from accidents years ago. So this recipe is just one that I have made exclusive for inflammation and just one way I am getting relief.  I found the original recipe on Pots and Plants after she shared her recipe on one of my Wordless Wednesday Linky Party 10/10

Anti-Inflammatory Mango Smoothie


  • 1/2 cup frozen Mango
  • 1/2 frozen Banana or fresh is too, just use a couple of ice cubes
  • 1/4 tsp. Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp. pure Maple Syrup
  • a generous dash of Cinnamon and Nutmeg
  • 2/4 cup unsweetened Almond Milk


  1. Add all ingredients in no particular order to a blender and mix.
  2. Add more milk of the smoothie is too thick.

After attending a class at Oasis To Zen Wellness Center in Las Vegas, and to learn more about CBD oils and tinctures, since then I have been using CBD oils creams, lotions and tinctures and I am liking how it is working. You see you can add CBD oils and tinctures to any smoothie you make for its benefits, just follow the directions. And you can use creams, lotions, and ointments topically in relief of pain, which I am finding useful for arthritis in my hands and neck and the Bursitis I mentioned. 

Note: If your not sure about the use of CBD oil products you can catch a couple of my articles for insight, CBD oils do not have THC in them and are not derived from Marijuana, they are extracted from a Hemp plant and have a plethora of uses and work on the Endocannabinoid system in our body.

Here is one I wrote, 7 Reasons CBD Oil is Great for Anti-Aging and there is mounting research into CBD oil products even the medical community is getting on board and products can now be found in stores, however, what I have found is that they are not as potent as products you would find at a store that sells CBD oil and tinctures exclusively and offers education about CBD oils and uses. I found a great article here CBD Oil

What are your thought on the use of natural products and have you tried CBD oils yet, I would love to hear from you in comments.

    This is great information. I injured my back a few years ago and I have a finger that was injured years ago as well.They both give me pain almost every day. Not unbearable, but it is getting progressively worse. It is nice to know there are alternatives to medications. I like the natural approach. TFS and for co-hosting with me at #omhgww.

    I have been acquiring lots of remedies that are homemade for a while now for different problems. And since this was my first go on using CBD in a smoothie my verdict is still out.
    But I have a flavored CBD oil, CHocolate-Mint, very light on the mint that I use under my tongue and I am told that it does take a while for the body to really respond.
    Thank you for your comment. And for being a co-host om #omhgww each week!🙂
