This immune boosting smoothie has some of my fave gut friendly ingredients, like ginger, lemon and avocado. It’s creamy, slightly sweet and loaded with immune boosting nutrients.
The ingredient that really ramps up this smoothies immune boosting power is Camu Camu, an Amazonian superfood.
Just 1 tsp of camu camu powder can provide over 600 mg of vitamin C! That’s 30-60x more than an orange!
Eating antioxidant rich foods with micronutrients that boost immune function is more important than ever, as we try to stay healthy during these chaotic times.
What I share with my clients is that 70+% of our immune function is actually dependent on our gut health! You see, achieving and maintaining proper gut health can greatly impact our bodies adaptive immune function. This is the part of the immune system that we attain over time as we’re exposed to pathogens (aka, the bad guys!).
Enjoy this easy to make smoothie with those you love!
