Here's a smoothie recipe that we make when we think we might be coming down with a cold.
Blueberries are rich with antiviral and antibiotic compounds that you so need during this time. Together with the rich beta carotene from the mango, your immune system is well protected from the free radicals attack.
1 cup of fresh/frozen blueberries
1/2 banana that is just almost ripe (less calories)
1/2 cup mango slices
1/2 cup milk of choice
1 tablespoon of any kind of ground nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon chlorella/spirulina powder
Put everything in the blender and blend. We usually will add 3 ice cubes so it's a bit colder. Completely up to you though.
For those of you that don't know what Chlorella is I will give you a little background. Chlorella is a green algae. People use it for detoxing. It has the ability to reduce high blood pressure, lower serum cholesterol levels, accelerate wound healing, and enhance immune functions.
You can research it if you'd like. We have found that the best and purest brand for Chlorella is Sun Chlorella Granules 3g packets.
Here's a link to their site where you can get more information. http://www.sunchlorellausa.com/sun-chlorella/what-is-chlorella.html
