Comfrey Smoothie Recipes
You can add comfrey to fruit smoothies or green drinks. If you are having a smoothie to treat any kind of inflammation, do not use cow’s milk in it. Cow’s milk tends to increase mucous production and inflammation.
Pina Colada Comfrey Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 can coconut milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 2-3 medium sized fresh comfrey leaves (or 1.5 teaspoons of comfrey leaf powder)
Blend the above ingredients in a blender. The pineapple in the bromelain will add another layer to the anti-inflammatory effect.
Berry Comfrey Smoothie
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric powder
- 2-3 medium sized comfrey leaves (or 1 1/2 teaspoons comfrey leaf powder)
- 1 cup almond milk
Blend the above in a blender and enjoy!
You can add all sorts of other things to increase the nutrition of your smoothie. You can add a tablespoon of chia seeds, cacao powder or gelatin to your smoothie to increase its nutrition. Gelatin is especially helpful if you are treating a skeletal issue.
