The Immunity Boost Smoothie Recipe
…To Make with your Tots!
This one packs the ultimate punch for when you need to feel your best and put up your defenses against getting sick.
I just returned from a long weekend visiting my folks in the desert in California. It’s no joke that the surge in Vitamin D from those rays actually has kept me illness-free all winter!
If you’re like me, any escape to the sun and sand has to be soaked up. Last month our family of four went to Florida and that trip finally broke the spell of seemingly back-to-back colds for my two-year-old.
Now that we have another 6 weeks til the sun can work its magic at home, I thought it was the perfect time to make our Immunity Boost Smoothie! I can just close my eyes and imagine that my cold drink is cooling me off on that beach…
The best part of a smoothie is you can change out the fruit and substitute the omega source for what is in your fridge and pantry that day.
Turmeric will help your joints and inflammation, keep your liver running clean, and aid in a good night’s sleep. It guards against cancer and assists in weight loss. I could go on and on, but…
Pineapple or Mango
Hemp or Chia Seeds
Splash of Orange Juice
Sweet Potato – (mild and will go undetected)
Bonus if you gather your kiddos in the kitchen to toss in each one. This teaches them the benefits of healthy choices and they are waaayyy more likely to beg for their own cup!
I’d love you to give it a try and tell me what you think! What did you find to be the best combination? Are there other flavors you love to add? Tell me about it in the comments!
