Because of its mild and pleasant taste, comfrey makes a perfect addition to a healing smoothie. A comfrey smoothie can reduce internal or external inflammation.

A comfrey smoothie makes a great meal for someone who is convalescing, has trouble digesting food, or who just needs a comforting and healing drink.

Comfrey smoothies can be enjoyed to benefit any of these health issues:

  • acne
  • allergies
  • arthritis
  • gout
  • joint pain
  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • sprains
  • strains
  • broken bones

  • colitis
  • diarrhea
  • constipation
  • eczema
  • poison ivy

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 comfrey leaves (or 1 1/2 teaspoons 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.

Well, its that time of year again. Everything is growing, including the poison ivy. My 11 year old has it pretty badly. Yesterday his face was quite swollen. Time to continue the tweaking of my poison ivy protocol.

I made a strong plantain/comfrey tea and keep it in the fridge. He uses a cotton ball to apply the tea to his face when it is uncomfortable. I had him wash his face with fels naptha soap. I put dmso on his face and then a plantain/comfrey salve. I had him take a baking soda bath and drink a comfrey smoothie. He thinks the bath helped the most. I think the DMSO helped the most. He said that the DMSO burned (I used 70%) which is why I applied the salve afterwards. I am also giving him bromelain and turmeric capsules to help reduce inflammation.

Today the poison ivy is drying out some and looks less red. I am hopeful that he is on the mend. He has some in the corners of his mouth, making eating uncomfortable. I made him a comfrey Pina Colada which he could drink through the straw. He wasn't thrilled about the comfrey but his little brothers (and I) think it tastes delicious.

I made a large batch in my blender -

  • 5 or so comfrey leaves
  • 2 small cans pineapple with juice
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 frozen bananas
