It's that time of year where illness seems to be plaguing our family. So I am doing everything I can to keep immune systems high, everyone well fed and well rested in hopes of keeping more illness at bay until spring arrives. My children love smoothies so the other day I decided to whip up a really fresh tasting smoothie that I knew my kids would love AND would help bust any cold that might be coming on. The result was delicious and refreshing and I loved getting an extra dose of vitamin C in all of our bodies! This is a smoothie that I plan to make again and again especially if anyone starts sneezing, sniffling or coughing. So keep reading to snag my Cold Buster Smoothie Recipe for yourself!
This is a great recipe that can be easily modified with what you have on hand. But the key to the extra immunity boosting properties of this are to add a serving of Vitamin C Crystals (affiliate link included for your convenience). This is a must easier way to get your Vitamin C then a yucky, tart vitamin, and it can help during the winter months to keep you healthy and give you an extra boost of antioxidants for the day.
