Ingredients In Immune Boosting Smoothies

  • Frozen banana: The banana gives these smoothies sweetness and a creamy, thick texture. 
  • Clementine: We’re adding lots of vitamin C and a honey-sweet taste.
  • Mango chunks: Loaded with vitamins and minerals, this ingredient also creates a thick, creamy texture.
  • Orange juice: Typically, smoothies have milk as the liquid base, but to boost the immune system, we’re using orange juice.
  • Carrot: There are so many immune boosting smoothie benefits when adding carrots; read up on those here.
  • Greek yogurt: Yogurt adds a creaminess to the smoothies and also adds a lot of protein so the smoothies have more staying power.
  • Ginger: A strong antioxidant that has been shown to naturally boost the immune system.
  • Turmeric: A natural way to help boost the immune system by increasing your body’s antibody formation. Adding extra turmeric during periods of stress or flu season helps give the immune system a little boost (source). 
  • Ice: Ice keeps an Immune-Boosting smoothie nice and cold, as well as super thick.

How To Make An Immune Booster Smoothie

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender.
  2. Blend thoroughly until the mixture is creamy and free from chunks.
  3. Pour into two glasses, distributing equally.
  4. Serve right away for best flavor.

QUICK TIP

If needed, add a little honey or maple syrup to sweeten your Immune Boosting Smoothie. I’ve found with a really good and ripe banana, plus good flavorful Greek yogurt, it doesn’t need the additional sweetener– but this can vary. So, give your smoothies a quick taste and add a teaspoon or two as needed.

Tips For Success

I know: How complicated can making an Immune Boosting Smoothie be, right?! But I still have a few tips.

  1. Good ripe bananas make all the difference in these smoothies. Freeze the bananas when they’re super ripe and use only when completely frozen. Add to the blender and watch how creamy they turn!
  2. Use quality Greek yogurt. The yogurt really matters. It lends an incredible creaminess and flavor. Our absolute favorite yogurt to use in these smoothies is Greek Gods® honey vanilla yogurt. (Not sponsored, just a fan). Whatever brand you get, aim for vanilla or honey-flavored yogurt, not just plain.

    Yum! I saw this on your Instagram page and finally went out to get mango to make my own. It is so delicious! The ginger gave it just a little savory taste and it’s so creamy. I needed to add a little water to get mine to blend properly, but my blender is relatively old and cheap. I’ll likely keep making this a few days week to keep my immune system fueled!

    1. I am so happy to hear this! It’s the perfect start to my mornings and makes me feel so much better! Hope you continue to enjoy! 🙂

    I’m a teacher and I’m trying everything that I can to stay well. I love this smoothie so much that I shared the recipe with a friend. It is so bright tasting and I love drinking it first thing in the morning after doing some yoga.

    1. First of all, thanks for all you’re doing as a teacher! And secondly, I’m thrilled you’re loving this! Thanks so much Samantha! 🙂
