Immune boosting continues to be a key topic as we are re-opening after the spring quarantine. Smoothies can be an easy way to add immune-boosting foods to our healthy lifestyle. Combining specific fruits or veggies which target nutrient density is a bonus as a smoothie can easily hide foods children may not choose to eat alone or if served separately. Many nutritious smoothie recipes are easily available on Pinterest and elsewhere. These two are gluten-free favorites of the GF Mom Certified family.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Yields: 1 serving 

¼ cup unsweetened coconut milk

3 frozen strawberries

1 orange

1 ripened banana

¼ cup frozen raspberries

1 tsp flax

1 tsp cod liver oil

1 scoop berry blend greens powder

1 capsule probiotic, opened (optional)

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until creamy. The more ice or frozen berries, the thicker it gets.

 

Cacao-Pecan, Coconut Banana Smoothie 

 

Yields: 1 serving

1 cup coconut milk

1 ripened banana

1 Tbsp pecan nut butter

1 Tbsp coconut flakes

1 Tbsp cacao powder

1 scoop chocolate greens

1 capsule probiotic, opened (optional)

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until creamy. Add ice to make it thicker.

To increase the immune-boosting power of these smoothies, add:

1 tsp liposomal vitamin C
