Ingredients for Vitamin C Immune-Boosting Citrus Smoothie:

Citrus.

You can use ground turmeric or the fresh one. However, when it comes to ginger, I prefer fresh. Please do what you can with what you have.

I will be adding three different kinds of citrus fruits to this sunshine smoothie, namely – orange, grapefruit, and lemon. First of all, citrus is classic fruits that never go out of fashion. Their uses are so necessary, if you don’t like oranges, then you may like grapefruit, and if you do not like grapefruit, perhaps you use limes and lemons to make salad dressings. And did I mention that citrus helps with the absorption of iron? For instance, when you add lemons or limes to make salad dressing, they would help your body absorb the salad leaves say, spinach. There is always a use for citrus!

Not to mention that citrus can effectively help lessen the burden of cold due to the high content of vitamin C. You and I know that there is gazillion ways to enjoy citrus, I eat an orange every day. My daughter loves tangerines and clementine. And of course, this immune-boosting citrus smoothie is a way to go! And into the blender, everything goes…

Ginger.

Ginger is a powerhouse when it comes to immune defense. It also helps to reduce the risk of heart disease as well as lowering blood sugars. Additionally, if you are serious about heart-healthy, then you need some ginger without question; it is an excellent herb that promotes heart health. Ginger help the cholesterol. Equally, it can help with chronic indigestion!

For all the ladies in the room that have a painful menstrual cycle, please ensure that you ginger up. Or at least use ginger powder. Use ginger during the period your cycle is on to soothe pain. By the same token, researches linked specific properties in ginger to have the ability to prevent certain cancers.

Turmeric.

Believe it or not, turmeric is a sister of ginger! First, the FACT: turmeric was used in India for centuries to treat breathing problems. Fortunately, it is not too late to embrace turmeric, and the same result can still apply today. In general, turmeric is a superfood that greatly supports your health.

Specifically, turmeric can soothe depressive moods, add the powder to your cacao drink or smoothie like I did in this immune-boosting citrus smoothie. Furthermore, turmeric can help the body fight off infections. Be it the cold, flu, herpes, as well as re-infection. It is worthy to note that turmeric alongside ginger (her sister) is anti-inflammatory.

      Stay safe, and well, my friend.

  3. As the local supermarkets have been raided by locusts I took the easy way and bought citrus based smoothies enriched with Vitamin C. Not ideal from a health point of view because of the sugar bombs but nevertheless useful for when you are not moving or working as hard as you would normally do.

    Love this recipe, I shall grab the ingredients from the farm shop if it hasn’t also been raided by those locking themselves in their secret nuclear bunkers to wait out the end of the zombie apocalypse that I must have missed.

    Love your photos too, btw 🙂

    1. Hahaha, so true, Cristina! Quite a description of what is currently going on. I am hopeful that this ends soon.
      I know you will enjoy this smoothie, let me know when you make it, and don’t forget to rate it.😊
      Thanks for your kindest words about my photos.🙏🏾

  4. That sounds as delicious as it looks. I’ll definitely try it out. Thanks for sharing.
