IMMUNE BOOSTER GREEN SMOOTHIE

11 Jan

  Good morning! It’s Monday yet again and it feels like the weekend just flew by! With the way this winter weather has been fluctuating, it’s very easy for our immune system to get compromised, so I find that an effective way to keep your immune system functioning at its best is to load up on vitamin C, and of course lots of fruits and veggies. A green smoothie a day will keep the flu away! Or at least reduce your risk of getting sick. This smoothie contains:

1 gala apple๐ŸŽ

Sliced pineapples๐Ÿ

Half a lemon๐Ÿ‹

1 cup organic kale๐ŸŒฟ

2 cups organic baby spinach๐Ÿƒ

2 tbsp flaxseed meal

1/4 cup plain non fat greek yogurt (or 2 tbsp peanut butter for dairy free option) 

2 cups unsweetened almond milk๐Ÿผ

 1 tbsp raw honey๐Ÿฏ

Ice

Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serves 2.

    Hi Valerie, how are you? I really need something like this immune booster green smoothie as I came back yesterday from Cuba with a cold and sore throat.

    I had two weeks of cold, wet, windy weather, like MONSOON RAIN & HURRICANE WINDS the first day.

    I tried to print off the ingredient list for this recipe but it only printed the title. What to do?
    Francesca.

      Hi Francesca! Welcome back. This should help your cold. I’m not sure why you can’t print it, maybe click on the title before printing or write down the ingredients. If or when you do make the recipe, you can add some orange juice or half a lemon for extra vitamin C. Hope this helps!
