Immune Boost Smoothie

Beverages

Eating super healthy, staying hydrated, getting good sleep, reducing stress and moving your body everyday are staples of keeping your immune system strong.

With the changing seasons we often need a little something extra and this simple Immune Boost Smoothie fits the bill. It is a delicious, creamy drink that is absolutely full of super power ingredients to beef (wow I don't use that word very often ;-) up your immune system and keep you healthy...

Ginger - antiviral, antibacterial & anti-parasitic

Coconut Yogurt - gut healthy probiotics

Pumpkin Seeds - full of immune boosting zinc, clean protein and fibre

Raw Honey - naturally antibacterial, adaptogenic & full of minerals 

Turmeric - inflammation & disease fighter

Cinnamon - so many antioxidants, so little time

Mango - tons of vitamins C & A + they uplift your mood and help alleviate SAD (seasonal affective disorder)

Almond Milk - because dairy = inflammation, acidity & mucus (gross, I know)

This smoothie is a perfect breakfast (you can up the protein by adding a couple tablespoons of rolled oats or a scoop of protein powder) or an afternoon snack. Its even great as 'dessert' since mango and honey can also aid in good sleep. 

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut yogurt (I like the Silk brand) you can also use almond or cashew yogurt if you prefer
  • 1" piece of fresh ginger (or 1/4 tsp ground) 
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/4 cup frozen mango

Tips & Nutrition

You can add a scoop of plant based protein powder or 2 tablespoons of rolled oats for more protein and to make it more of a meal. 

Feel free to sub in any plant based milk or yogurt you have on hand or enjoy. Try to always use unsweetened to avoid unnecessary sugars. 

Always use raw honey as it still has all its healthy properties. Conventional honey has been processed and heated and many of its health benefits have been stripped away. 

Method

Place all ingredients in the order they are listed in a high speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
