Adapted from Foodie Crush

 

This healthy and creamy immune-boosting green smoothie made with almond milk, is naturally sweetened with frozen fruit and packed with vitamins and antioxidants to help keep colds at bay. 

Serves 2 smoothies   

Ingredients

  • 1 cup roughly chopped spinach and kale packed tightly
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen mix of mango pineapple and kiwi chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 90ml of Curaloe ORGANIC Aloe Vera Juice 

Instructions

Add the spinach and kale to a blender with the Almond Breeze and blend well.

Add the frozen fruit, ginger, lemon and aloe vera juice and blend until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add more almond milk 1 tablespoon at a time.

** If using fresh fruit instead of frozen, reduce the almond milk amount to 1 cup and slowly add more to make your preferred thickness. Or, add 3-4 ice cubes before blending.

Flu Fighter Smoothie

 

Adapted from Coach

Many poets have shunned orange, the colour with no rhyme. Perhaps that’s why they’re often so pale and weak, because if you want to stay healthy through the winter, orange is the ideal colour for your drinks. Try this one from sports nutrition expert Scott Baptie (foodforfitness.co.uk) with your breakfast and you’ll breathe easily. 

Serves 2 smoothies

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Carrots contain falcarinol, a compound that can reduce the risk of lung and colon cancer.
  2. Oranges are packed with vitamin C, which combats disease-inducing free radicals.
  3. Mangos are rich in carotenoids, a group of powerful antioxidants that improve immune function.
  4. Aloe Vera Juice stimulates part of the Immune System called macrophage.  These macrophages are powerful cells that demonstrate phagocytosis by gobbling up invaders in the blood stream such as viruses.
