Although there's no one thing that magically "boosts" your immune system, eating healthy (lots of fresh veggies and fruit), staying hydrated, getting good sleep, reducing stress and moving your body everyday are all essential to keeping it strong and healthy.
This smoothie is a delicious, creamy drink that's full of super power ingredients that both support and strengthen your immune system.
Ginger - antiviral, antibacterial & anti-parasitic
Coconut Yogurt - gut healthy probiotics
Pumpkin Seeds - full of immune boosting zinc, healthy fats & clean protein
Raw Honey - naturally antibacterial and adaptogenic
Turmeric - inflammation & disease fighter
Cinnamon - so many antioxidants, so little time
Mango - rich in vitamins C & A
Plant Based Milk - because dairy = inflammation and acidity (which can weaken your immune system)
makes 1 smoothie
You can add a scoop of your favourite plant based protein powder or 2 tablespoons of rolled oats for more protein.
Feel free to use any plant based milk (Oat, Almond, Cashew, Coconut, etc.) 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. Most conventional honey has been processed and heated and many of its health benefits have been stripped away.
Place all ingredients in the order they are listed in a high speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
