Immunity Booster Smoothie

Anything that has oranges and berries is good for your immune system right? I’m gonna go with it. I never think to add oranges to my smoothies, I usually stick to the same standard fruits: bananas, berries, pineapple, sometimes peaches. I also always use either almond milk or coconut milk, afraid plain water will just make the smoothie tasteless.

So when the man-of-the-house came down with a cold and asked for a plate of fruit and veggies, I gave him a smoothie instead. I left out the milk and used water instead, crossing my fingers it wouldn’t taste blah. And apparently it didn’t (I have yet to try it since I’m on a no-fruit Whole30 at the moment, but it got a thumbs up from the man).

  • 2 cups Cold Water

Instructions

Notes

Start with about 1-1/2 cups of the water and add more if it's too thick. Better to add as you go than add too much at the beginning.

  1. I love fruit smoothies with iced unsweetened tea (green, black, whatever is in the cabinet). I gives a little zing with no sugar.

We have enjoyed this soup both with and without the addition of the pork sausage, so it is both Whole30 and vegan friendly. This minestrone soup tastes even better than the endless soup from a certain chain restaurant, and you can make you own endless salad to go along with it.

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
