This immune boosting smoothie is made with delicious citrus fruit and carrots. This healthy smoothie recipe is high in antioxidants, vitamin C and A with ginger and turmeric for detoxifying and anti-inflammatory health benefits.
January is the time of year when searches for healthy smoothie recipes are at its highest! After indulging over the holidays, everyone is ready to start or pick up their healthy habits again as the new year begins.
I am no exception. For most of the year I am trying to have a green smoothie for either breakfast or lunch, but most of December I didn’t. I already have a bunch of green smoothie recipes on Leelalicious, because I love them and I believe they are such a delicious and easy way to consume leafy greens.
This time however, I was looking for a different kind of healthy smoothie. I wanted a nutrition packed immune booster! In these colder months of the year (even here in Thailand) we all could use a little boost to our immune systems.
I am not a nutritionist or dietician, but the first thing that comes to my mind in regards to cold-fighting properties, is vitamin C! So this smoothie is packed with
Citrus Fruit – other than being high in vitamin C, citrus fruit also contain antioxidants, fiber, and among others folate, calcium, and thiamin.
