Try this immune boosting Winter smoothie

I created this immune boosting smoothie because I much prefer to prevent illnesses than have to deal with being sick and everything it entails. Especially during cold and flu season.

Just the thought of cold & flu tablets and antibiotics makes me cringe. Antibiotics really mess with our health by killing off a lot of our good gut bacteria. And a lot of cold and flu medicines are pretty much just glorified sweets.

Drinking this immune boosting smoothie 2 or 3 times a week will help you keep those Winter bugs at bay. Eating a diet full of fresh fruit & vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats will help keep your defences up too.

Check out my list of immune boosting foods in this post about NATURAL COLD & FLU REMEDIES and give this smoothie a try.

This smoothie has just five ingredients and if you drink it regularly it can help keep your immune system healthy.

Recipe notes

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.
