What’s in this Immune Boosting Smoothie?
All the good stuff!
- Fresh oranges: you get plenty of fiber and a ton of Vitamin C
- Pineapple: filled with Vitamin C, antioxidants and cancer fighting properties
- Turmeric: a potent anti inflammatory spice
- Ginger: aids in digestion and is anti inflammatory
- Coconut milk: or your favorite non dairy milk. I like coconut as it lends a “creamy” texture
- Banana: filled with potassium and manganese, they’re also said to be heart healthy
How do I make it?
- load all the ingredients into the blender
Tips to make a fabulous smoothie
- Make sure the oranges are fresh.
- You can use frozen banana and pineapple, make sure you blend very well if you’re using frozen.
- Drink immediately, smoothies are best freshly made.
- If the smoothie is too thick add a little more plant milk.
Is it healthy to have a smoothie for breakfast?
I think so! Look at all those ingredients, they’re full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
If you’re looking for a protein punch add some vanilla or plain vegan protein powder, this one is EXCELLENT!
