The immune buster smoothie! With the season of colds and flu bugs surrounding us it is with due diligence that we can pour great whole foods into our bodies to keep our immune systems strong and able to kick those unwanted bugs right out of our system and we will not even miss a beat! I have a fun smoothie that my whole family loves and it beefs up the immune system at the same time.
1 cup frozen Wild Blueberries
3 whole Frozen bananas (to prepare bananas just peel them, break them in 1/2, put them in a freezer container and freeze)
2 T. or more of liquid flaxseed oil (Barlene’s)
1/2 to 1 Beet (you can cook it first if your blender has a hard time pureeing it)(Optional 1/2 to 1 cup of fresh spinach: wilt it in a tiny bit of water on the stove and then toss the wilted leaves into your smoothie)
The beets even make this a festive smoothie for this time of year!
