Immunity Defense Smoothie
If you only have one more smoothie in your life for the rest of the summer, this needs to be IT.
Not only is it made with just four simple ingredients but it’s chock full of our immune system’s best buddy: good ‘ol vitamin C…which is important for two reasons:
1. School just started back which means germs, germs, and more GERMS.
2. Fall is on the way and cold weather means people get sick, for whatever reason.
With that in mind, just one of these smoothies offers up 190% of your daily value vitamin C to keep you in tip-top shape for germ season.
But if that’s not enough to convince you then just try to imagine the flavors of pineapple, mango and orange mixed with vanilla almond milk in a cold creamy drink. Sounds good right?
It is. Like, dessert good.
You can always add spinach or protein powder for a little extra oomph but the base is enough for any adult, or child, to happily slurp down in a jiffy.
So go ahead- grab a straw and enjoy a refreshing drink while your insides slay the bad bacteria and viruses. I promise it’ll taste much better than antibiotics and NyQuil.
Cheers to immunity!
