Green Smoothie to boost your immunity and kickstart your morning!
I’m all about boosting my immunity during this time of the year when the weather starts to change and get colder. This green smoothie does just that. Packed with major immunue-boosting nutrients from the spinach, pear and ginger.
Not being a big kale person, spinach is always the base for my green smoothies. Loaded with vitamin C, antioxidants and beta carotene, it’s an infection-fighting powerhouse. Pear is added in there not only for sweetness, but also for it’s immune boosting properties. Lastly, ginger helps to decrease inflammation.
Add any of your favourite superfoods in the mix and you got a refreshing and filling smoothie to start your day! Check out the recipe below!
