Immune Boosting Triple Berry Smoothie

I like to do weird things in the shower, like drink my coffee, brush my teeth and drink a smoothie. It’s good time management.

I am all about some multi-tasking.

Normally my multi-tasking involves editing pictures, watching tv & drinking a glass of wine at the same time but whatever works I guess.

This week I have been battling with a sinus infection. Of course this thing decides to creep up on me when I have a thousand things to do at work & can’t afford a day off.

In effort to get over this sucker as quickly as possible, I decided to “multi-task” with my breakfast. I am slamming as many vitamins & antioxidants into my breakfast smoothie as possible.

The fact that this immune boosting berry smoothie is good for you should be a sin! It is packed with three different berries including blueberries for antioxidant, an orange for vitamin C and chia seeds for protein.Immune Boosting Triple Berry Smoothie

Triple Berry Smoothie Note:

With this immune boosting smoothie you have a few options when it comes to how you add the orange. You can either juice an entire orange, juice half & add half into the blender or add the entire peeled orange into the blender. This option depends completely on what effort you want to make with the recipe. I blended the entire orange & it tasted delicious!

Things I figured out making this immune boosting triple berry smoothie:

  1. I need to start drinking more smoothies for breakfast. They are fast, delicious & completely fill you up.
  2. Almond milk is the perfect option to give your smoothie a creamy texture.
  3. After 2 days of drinking this for breakfast, I am starting to feel better!
  4. This is a GREAT option to hide “good for you” ingredients into a healthy smoothie for your kids!
  5. Last but not least, this smoothie would transfer perfectly into a ice pop/popsicle!

Whether you drink this triple berry smoothie as an afternoon snack, for a post workout drink or as a cold buster (like I am) you won’t be disappointed!

ENJOY!
