When your immune system needs a boost, its time to make a healthy smoothie for a quick pick me up.
The immune system protects you from many diseases by responding and detecting a wide variety of pathogens, from viruses, as well as the big C cells.
Our favorite way of creatively activating our immune system is by feeding it with the best ingredients.
You may use some or all of our suggestions for your healthy smoothie. The more you use, the healthier you will become.
We recommend staying away from processed food. These foods contain many chemicals and preservatives.
Let’s start off with how we make our immune boosting smoothie. Click picture for more information.
Juicing blenders are super convenient at breaking up the ingredients with speed and perfection.
The Nutribullet – This little high-performance machine is fast and so easy to use. The BPA-free plastic cup is an easy way to drink your creations.
Be sure when using Nutribullet for your smoothies that you pulse your machine. In other words… after you start your machine.
Count 10 seconds, stop the machine, take out the cup give it a shake.
Repeat the count of 10 again, take out the cup give it a shake.
Then the final time you count to 15 seconds.
This will prevent your ingredients from warming up in the cup.
Funny story. When I first got my machine I could not figure out how to use it. How can I put a cup full of fruits and veggies upside down without everything falling out? It took me a few minutes to figure it out. You need to put everything into the cup, then add the blade onto the cup, and then… put the cup on top of the machine. Once you do it the proper way, you will always remember.
Next you will need a Measuring Cup to make sure you put the right mount of liquid into the cup each time you get your recipe to perfection.
I prefer glass.
You will be able to use this measuring cup for many other dishes you conger up.
To measure powders and liquids for your drink you will need to have,
Plastic measuring spoons are better than metal ones, because they will never have a reaction to what is in them.
We love the bright colors of the spoons. It will be hard to lose these in your kitchen.
Of all the citric juice smooshers on the market, you may wonder why I chose this one.
The bottom is real glass and not plastic. It is easy to keep clean and the top keeps air flowing into the container when not in use.
Brilliant idea Gemco.
Now that we have all the small stuff taken care of, let’s get the important ingredients for our Immune system booster.
We will not mention the C word.
This is the best detox recipe.
At first you may think you only need a couple of lemons. But these go into your drink at least once a day.
You can use half a lemon or a whole lemon, depends on your personal taste buds. Start off with a half a lemon using your citrus squeezer.
When using lemons never use cows milk, lemons will curdle the milk.
Instead us either 1/2 cup – almond milk, or oat milk.
If you are like me and your tummy will not tolerate almond milk, use oat milk instead. Because oat milk has a little more calories, than almond milk, use only 1/4 cup oatmilk and add another 1/4 cup water to cut calories.
Is considered a super food that supports our immune system. A little goes a long way. Follow directions on package.
No need to peel the skin, just wash them and cut up a few slices into the bullet and watch the magic happen.
