Tis the season to keep your immune systems up and running!
I actually typed out these ingredients while still battling an awful cold last week. It’s taken our family a week and a half to finally kick the sickness. We are SO glad to be feeling better and ready to take on 2017!
I made this last week for all the sick members of our house, and it tasted amazing. It’s also jam-packed with vitamin C and tons of other good for you nutrients.
I am a huge lover of customizable recipes, and smoothies are just that! You can combine your juice and citrus fruits and berries however you like. Whatever suits your tastebuds. We still had clementines leftover from the holiday season, and I love the frozen mixed berry bags at Aldi. So that’s what I used, and it turned out great.
It was nice knowing that we all could sip on something that was delicious, good for us, and immune-system-boosting!
1 c. frozen or fresh mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
1/3 c. Greek yogurt
1/2 c. packed baby spinach leaves
2 peeled and segmented clementines
1/3 c. orange juice
Layer your ingredients in a blender or food processor fruit first, yogurt second, spinach third and juice last.
Pulse or blend on high power for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until you get the consistency you like. Pour into glasses, garnish with a clementine or orange segment, and sip. 🙂
Daughter sipped on this all day long – the Minnie Mouse cup helped – and enjoyed the smaller chunks of berries.
Hope you and your family stay healthy and happy during this chilly season!
