Loaded Immunity Boosting Smoothie
I have been so looking forward to sharing my Loaded Immunity Boosting Smoothie or also known as Immunity Booster Smoothie with you.
It’s not only loaded with good for you ingredients but great for Detox or recoup a bad cold/flu season.
We just celebrated 1st Day of May, the official start of Summer, but this year the weather in California is still trying to decide whether we are in summer or cloudy spring (lol).
Ingredients for the Immunity Boosting Smoothie:
- Kale – fresh or frozen
- Avocado – peeled and chopped
- Apple – chopped
- Matcha Powder – optional
- Turmeric Powder
- Plain Yogurt
- Coconut Water
Despite the current weather changes, we all need to load up with fresh and nutrient-rich fruits and veggies to help boost our immunity.
The Most common challenge for not making or having a smoothie is ‘not having enough time to make something healthy’ !
Well, with this smoothie, you have an absolutely gorgeous and delicious recipe ready in 5 minutes.
It’s a powerhouse of nutrients – that can help you fight the common cold infection and super boost your immunity.
As I was also recovering from a seasonal cold, nothing looks better than a fresh homemade Loaded Vitamin C Immune Booster Smoothie to help raise my body’s immunity to fight germs and free radicals.
Along with the fresh fruits and veggies, I went a step ahead and added matcha powder, turmeric, chia powder, coconut milk, and aloe juice to help me heal, stay stronger and feel healthier.
Tips for Planning, Enjoying, and Sticking to Healthy Snacks:
Always try to eat as much fresh fruits and vegetables as possible.
Prep healthy snack options in advance and store in your fridge.
Prep smoothie fruits and veggies in portioned bags and keep them in your freezer.
Freeze Smoothies in ziplock bags or freezer containers for a quick snack.
Snack on healthy dried nuts like cranberries, almond, and pistachios.
Drink a lot of water, especially during the summer.
Try to eat a colorful bunch of fruits and veggies as different colors denote differently
phytonutrients needed by the body.
When going on a trip or out of the house, always carry snack bags with healthy options.
Finally, Take a Break, Breathe and Enjoy a Healthy Snack Everyday.
Now, for my Loaded Immunity Boosting Smoothie, I’ve actually picked a mix of base liquid like coconut juice and plain yogurt ( or use dairy-free if vegan ).
Then a mix of kiwi, orange, avocados, apple, lime, mint, kale and few more ingredients.
But it’s absolutely up to you to pick a base or fruit/veggie ingredient.
Once the smoothie is made, I love topping them with coconut, toasted quinoa, and turmeric.
