Stay Healthy Naturally All Year Round!
I don’t know about you, but I much prefer to prevent colds & flus, especially in Winter, than have to deal with being sick and everything it entails.
The thought of cold & flu tablets and antibiotics (and how they mess with our health by killing off a lot of our good gut bacteria) makes me cringe.
You can check out my list of immune boosting foods in this post about Natural Cold & Flu Remedies and give this smoothie a try.
It’s just five ingredients and if you drink it regularly it should help keep your immune system healthy.
- 1 pear, chopped
- 1 orange, chopped
- 1 grapefruit, chopped
- 1 piece ginger, chopped
- 1 large handful spinach
- ¼ cup water
Blend the spinach with the water.
Roughly chop the ginger and all the fruit.
Add to the spinach mixture and blend until smooth.
- Start with ¼ cup of water and add more if your finished smoothie is too thick.
- Use any variety of pear or grapefruit that you like – I used a William pear and a ruby grapefruit.
- If you prefer a sweeter taste, add another orange, or just use half the grapefruit.
- This smoothie will keep overnight if refrigerated in a sealed container.
