Posted at



With the change in season sometimes comes flu symptoms, low energy levels and changes in skin complexion. What a better way to combat these issues then eating a smoothie bowl?! I have created three recipes that can help boost your immune system, increase energy levels and keep your skin looking healthy, young and fresh.

Immune Boosting Green Smoothie Bowl


Ingredients:
1 cup of spinach - A foundation of greens is key! If you don’t like spinach substitute for kale, romaine lettuce, beet leaves or parsley.
1 green pear - or any other fruit that is in season. Some examples include apples, kiwis and tangerines.
1 frozen banana
½ avocado
1 piece ginger - Can help combat and reduce symptoms of cold and flu.
½ citrus fruit of choice, juiced - Full of vitamins, antioxidants, and alkalinizing properties that can help to strengthen your immune system.

Method:
The method for this smoothie bowl is simple! Blend all the ingredients together with a handful of ice cubes until you get a consistency similar to a soft-serve ice cream.

Toppings:
¼ cup unsweetened dessicated coconut
½ kiwi fruit, chopped
1 handful frozen mixed berries
