Immune Boost Smoothie in 40 Seconds
We’re slowly easing out of winter and heading towards the glory days of spring and summer – yay! We can’t wait. It’s a good idea to give our bodies an immune boost as we edge towards the finish line, just to make sure we enter the new season at our peak. Our systems have been working hard all winter to stave off colds and flu and that’s no mean feat, so a tasty and nutrient-dense smoothie is an excellent way to refuel the system.
With the help of probably one of the most popular kitchen appliances around, making yourself a tasty smoothie is incredibly simple and fuss-free. Unlike juicers, which remove fibre, and traditional blenders, which often leave chunks, the Nutribullet’s powerful 600w motor blends in seconds, retaining all of the delicious flavour, and most importantly, the vital vitamins and minerals you need.
See our recipe for a tasty immune boosting smoothie, made in just 40 seconds! ‘No time to be healthy’ is definitely not a plausible excuse here!
