The Perfect Green Smoothie Recipe!
January is all about smoothies right? Maybe come February I might get bored of them but for now I’m still making them every day.
Smoothies are the best way for me to get my kids to eat plenty of fruits and veggies in one sitting, and myself too of course.
This one is a immune boosting smoothie that is packed with healthy ingredients to help fight off a cold.
Surprisingly I haven’t gotten a cold yet this winter (fingers crossed I don’t) but if I do I’ll definitely be turning to this. Smoothies are soothing to a sore throat, plus there’s just not a lot of food that sounds great when you’ve got a cold other than something sip-able like cold or warm drinks and soups.
If you currently have a cold (I’m sorry, I hate being sick! Get well soon!) here are some home remedies you may want to try to help ease your discomfort and hopefully help speed up recovery.
And of course even if you don’t currently have a cold you should still try this smoothie. It’s healthy and delicious and it’s packed with good for you, immunity boosting ingredients like kale, fruit and kefir. Now break out your blender and get making smoothies!
