Cherries are a good source of anthocyanin’s which provide antioxidant and
anti-inflammatory properties that can help ease arthritis pain. Ginger and
cinnamon also provide anti-inflammatory properties. And flax seeds contain Omega 3 fatty acids which help ease the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis by lowering levels of inflammatory chemicals in the body that erode cartilage.

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender for a couple of minutes until smooth and creamy.

  2. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  3. Pour into a tall thin ice-tea glass and serve with a straw or (optional) garnish by hanging a cherry on the rim and topping with a mint sprig.
