Immunity Boosting Smoothie
Yield: 1 (20-ounce) or 2 (10-ounce) smoothies
Bursting with healing Vitamin C, this hydrating smoothie will serve you well all year round.


  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice* (I like coconut or almond; may substitute plain or vanilla yogurt)
  • 1/2 lightly rounded cups EACH frozen strawberries, mango, and pineapple**
  • 1 teaspoon freshly minced ginger (or more to taste)
  • Optional: 1-2 teaspoons raw honey; a handful or two of fresh baby spinach; 1-2 tablespoons almond butter


  1. Add the ingredients to a blender and blend on high speed until completely smooth, scraping down the blender as needed.

    Add a drizzle of honey or extra ginger to taste, pour into glasses, and enjoy.


*This smoothie is not overly tart or zingy, but for a milder flavor yet, you may adjust the ratio of liquids to 3/4 cups each orange juice and milk of choice.

**I use 2.5 to 3 ounces of each fruit for a consistency that is thin enough to drink through a straw.  For a thicker smoothie, you may scale back the liquid and/or add more frozen fruit to taste and/or a frozen banana.  Optionally, fresh fruit may be used when available.
