With the New Year fast approaching, I thought I would share with you my favourite drink to get me back on track if I overindulge. Detox Immune Boost Smoothie gives our body a helping hand in ensuring that we have the right nutrients on hand after our indulgence. So to ensure that we keep our immune system strong I like to use immune boosting ingredients like ginger, lemon and turmeric.
Thumb size piece ginger
1/2 pink grapefruit
4 beetroot leaves
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp fresh turmeric or 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
4 pieces frozen pineapple
2 cups coconut water
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth!
This smoothie is “rich in antioxidants (including vitamin C), and fibre to help move toxins out.” And great for picking up your blood sugar which gets lower especially when drinking alcohol.”
*Tip: To ensure that you get a smooth textured smoothie, it is recommended to blend your greens (i.e. spinach, kale leaves &) with the liquid first, then add the remaining ingredients.
I hope you enjoy this quick Detox Immune Boost Smoothie! Leave me a comment below and let me know how you feel after drinking it. I love hearing from you. Another smoothie you might like also is Immune Balance Me Smoothie!
