The flu is extra horrible this year and with starting a new job I CANNOT GET SICK. I'm sure everyone feels the same way, I mean I don't know many people that want the flu. To help combat all the germs this year I made a immune boosting smoothie receipe.
Cold & Flu Season Smoothie
This citrus zinger of a smoothie contains oranges for their Vitamin C, turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties, and the ginger and lemon duo for an added boost to the immune system. Typically I use frozen bananas to thicken smoothies, but I wanted to keep the sugar content down given I’m sick and went with frozen zucchini instead. If you want a sweeter drink though, go with banana.
1 orange, peeled
1 lemon, peeled
1 frozen zucchini
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ inch fresh ginger root
1 tbs tummeric
The night before, chop up a zucchini, place in a sealed container, and place in freezer.
Put all ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth.
