Immune Boosting Very Berry Smoothie

If there’s one thing that can disrupt an already busy parents life, it’s a sick kid! There are plenty of things you can do to alleviate the anxiety of cold season like washing your hands regularly and keeping away from sick friends and family, but the best way is making sure you put tons of immune boosting foods in your kids body.

Immune Boosting Very Berry Smoothie from Weelicious.com

No bragging right and I shouldn’t say this out loud cause it’s basically jinxing myself, but my kids almost never get sick and I attribute it to smoothies. Adding a plethora of nutrient dense foods to a blender and making a drink that’s easy to suck down from 1 and up is my secret weapon during the months when colds can bog kids down. This immune boosting smoothie is a game changer when your kids aren't feeling their best and you need to get them back to healthy quick! P.S. It works great for adults too!

    I love this as all my children are getting over a horrible cough/croup right now. One question: If we don’t have fresh turmeric on hand how much powdered turmeric should we substitute in?

    I believe you get your bee pollen from the farmer's market but do you have a brand that you would recommend from Whole Foods or an online health store. Thanks !
