I love making my simple immune boosting green smoothie on a daily basis and alter the ingredients depending on what I feel like and what’s in season.
What I love about making smoothies is that you get wholefood ingredients that are easily digeted in one glass. This includes lots of plant based fibre that helps your body eliminate toxins as well as keeping you full and energized for hours after you drink it. To help boost my intake of immune boosting minerals, I also love to add pumpkin seeds or use a little of the pumpkin seed milk when making the smoothie. Coconut water or the addition of some pinepple is also lovely if you want your smoothie a little on the sweeter side.
