Beat cold and flu season with a super immunity-boosting smoothie!

In the last few weeks everyone seems to have succumbed to viruses from sniffles to full-blown flu.  Working in air conditioned offices; attending schools and travelling on public transport means this is all but inevitable and rather than sealing yourself in hermetic bubble – you are better up boosting your defenses.

Smoothies are a great way to get a tasty boost of vitamins into your system on a daily basis and Joyous Health did a great feature on immunity-boosting smoothies at the end of last year, which would be well worth revisiting now.

Our favorite is the Chocolate Popeye Flu-Fighter:

The Chocolate Popeye – Flu Fighter

  • 1 handful Spinach
  • 1 frozen Banana
  • 2 tbs. raw cacao powder
  • 2 scoops almond butter
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 cups almond or coconut milk
