*Immune-boosting Orange Smoothie
2 oranges, peeled and seeded
1/3 lemon, peeled and seeded
Small piece of ginger
Small piece of turmeric
¼ cup milk or coconut milk
½ cup water
Pinch of black pepper
¼ tsp cinnamon powder
Honey to taste (optional)
Put all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Add in more or less water depending on the consistency you like. Serves 2.
This smoothie is something I often make in the autumn and winter months to boost my immunity. This not only tastes good but is an immune booster, as oranges are a good source of Vitamin C, turmeric has anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial activity, ginger and cinnamon have anti-inflammatory properties.
