CREAMSICLE IMMUNITY SMOOTHIE YOU MUST TRY

Bolster your immune system with this scrumptious Creamsicle Immunity Smoothie, developed especially for you by our Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant, Heather @livefullynutrition! This recipe is LOADED with immune supportive ingredients to strengthen your body’s own natural defense system to stay strong & healthy during this time! 

 

Key nutrients to supercharge immunity include Vitamin C (from oranges), Vitamin A (from carrots), probiotics and lauric acid (from coconut milk yogurt/kefir), and Zinc (from hemp seeds). Raw honey contains antimicrobial and antioxidant phytonutrients for an extra immune-boosting benefit. Alternatively, you can use bee pollen (those crunchy, little, yellow pellets) for an even more potent benefit, as 1 Tbsp of bee pollen contains over 250 nutrients! Talk about a nutritional powerhouse! Research also shows that curcumin from turmeric “spices up” the immune system by modulating T cells, B cells, neutrophils and natural killer cells.

 

Food is so powerful, fun, and beautiful!
