A rainbow immune fighting Smoothie

This morning’s smoothie experiment was successful! I used apple, pineapple, spinach, beetroot, ginger and coconut milk.

The humble apple is high in fibre and vitamin C. Pineapple is loaded with Vitamin C and has a very cool enzyme- Bromelain- which acts as an anti- mucolytic. Spinach is rich in micronutrients such as folate and zinc. Beetroot has powerful anti inflammatory properties and that beautiful red pigment provides tons of anti- oxidant phytonutrients. Ginger is anti inflammatory and warming for winter, and coconut milk is rich in good fat, dairy free  and adds some silky creaminess to this mix.

It turned out to be a very delicious mix, and my body was like-‘ Yessss! Thank you!’. The Nutribullet has been my knight in shining armour, especially in the time and texture category.

The recipe is below:

I love my Nutribullet!

Last week Sunday I had the most serendipitous encounter with a fabulous Nutribullet. I have ALWAYS wanted one, so I feel very blessed to have won it! I attended a seminar, and won this beautiful machine as well as two delicious medical food shakes!
