Super C Immune Boosting Smoothie

IMMUNE-BOOSTING SMOOTHIE

Here’s a delicious and simple immune boosting smoothie that I’ve been making at home over the last few weeks. I find it helps revitalise my body when I’m a little stressed and run down with work and it’s a smoothie I can easily make ahead of time and pop it in the fridge when I get to work. I’ve used oranges in this recipe – you can also use pineapple and it works really well. I’m a huge a fan of ginger and turmeric – the best natural anti-inflammatories you can get.

WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT:

Citrus such as oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, lemons and limes are an excellent source of vitamin C which helps maintain the body’s defence against bacterial infections. Citrus has a unique type of fibre that, appears to dramatically reduce cholesterol. Carrots contain vitamin A precursors called carotenoids (Beta carotene) that help promote vision and support a healthy immune system. Ginger is packed with an impressive list of health properties and scientifically shown to have potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Curcumin is the active ingredient in Turmeric, which gives it the distinct and vibrant yellow colouring.
