immune booster smoothie

A recipe from the wonderful Greenleaf Organics that's not just for the kids - this delicious and nourishing blend is perfect for the super heroes in disguise too (that’s you mums!). 

With these cool winter days upon us, there are lots of coughs & colds around so it is important to give your body extra vitamins and nutrition to build up the immunity. This smoothie has hidden health boosters of nutritional yeast (fantastic plant source of Vitamin B’s), plant protein for growing bodies and minds, spirulina (nature's most nutrient-rich food), liquid iron (an ideal source for plant based power) and organic fruits and plant milks, the super hero smoothie will help you feel like you could climb any mountain… or even just manage to face the day.

Smoothies are the best way to get maximum goodness into your kids, without the fuss of cooking, or playing the choo choo train with small spoons.

We strongly recommend using organic ingredients as it means you and your child will be getting all the natural goodness without any unwanted villains!
