We all need a good immune boost to get us through the rest of winter. Healthy Smoothies are our favorite way to get all those good nutrients and antioxidants in, and today we’re partnering with Maty’s Healthy Products to share two secret ingredients for our immune boosting Vitamin C winter smoothie.
Maty’s make a whole line of natural remedies for things like coughs and colds, but with natural ingredients you recognize and trust. So no worries about side effects or taking too much. A bit more about what makes them different right here.
We’re using a teaspoon of the organic cough syrup (they have natural and organic cough syrup products for both adults and children) in our Vitamin C smoothie. My kids loves smoothies. Not only is it a great chance to throw in greens and nutrients they might not eat on their own, but a no-tears way to add in some natural remedies like cough syrup when feeling under the weather.
Do you have a smoothie recipe you love? We have so many, but my favorite right now is full of all the great winter fruits (bursting with vitamin C) and vegetables. I try to use as much fresh ingredients that I can, but I love frozen fruit as a great alternative as well. Here’s a delicious Green Vitamin C smoothie recipe we love:
Green Vitamin C Smoothie
Handful of kale or spinach
1 cup of frozen peaches, pineapple, and mango
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
1 T of honey
1/2 cup of cottage cheese
1/2 cup of grated carrot
1 fresh squeezed lime
Two of my secret ingredients are cottage cheese and a fresh squeezed lime. Cottage cheese might sound surprising, but it’s a great source of protein and gives a creaminess that’s low in fat.
And a bit of lime juice makes everything taste that much more fresh. A secret weapon!
Blend it all together and add some fun toppings if you’d like for a more filling smoothie. We love granola, coconut, and some dried raspberries.
