Immunity Booster Green Smoothie | Smoothie verde pentru cresterea imunitatii

Sharing is caring!

I’ve been having some minor health problems lately. My immunity seems to be a bit low and I’ve been catching colds way too often. This is the main reason I don’t like winter…not so many fruits and vegetables available at my local farmers’ market and also because it’s too cold outside, I don’t feel like eating raw and prefer cooked meals instead.

I recently found an awesome romanian website which sells all kinds of plant based powders like Spirulin or Chlorella powder and even “not-so-common” plants like Catuaba or Brahmi. I’ve been taking spirulin pills but they seem so expensive compared to these powders! 1 spirulin capsule usually contains 500mg-1g of spirulin powder and I paid less than 10$ for 125g!! Unfortunately I don’t know if they ship internationally but if you want I’ll ask. Anyway, they import most of their products from UK as I’ve seen so I’m sure you’ll find some great websites where you can buy these healthy powders at affordable prices.

Now, about this immunity booster green smoothie It does look a bit GROSS right?! :D Yep, I know it’s not very appealing but TRUST ME it’s DELICIOUS!!! Don’t let the appearances fool you because this immunity booster green smoothie  is pure awesomeness!! I usually drink about 1 glass and a half of green smoothie each morning and the great thing is that it’s ready in less than 5 minutes! I add lots of powders because I need a quick immunity boost but it’s not necessary to add all of them. In the ingredients list below I’ll put a numbers after each ingredient: 1 means it’s very important, 2 – important but can be skipped if you don’t have it, and 3-optional.

Very important!! Keep in mind that you should respect the recommended dosage for each one of these powders. For spirulin and chlorella for example it’s ok if you add a bit more but for Ginkgo Biloba or Catuaba this can be dangerous! I consider that it is enough to drink one smoothie like this per day in order to increase your immune system’s power. If you want to know more about each ingredient in this smoothie, read the brief descriptions below.

  1. This is a really nice way to get a lift after a walk or exercise, my partner whipped up a couple after our sunday ride and we both enjoyed them plus this smoothie is healthy, what more can you ask :)

  2. I really want to try this recipe, but I have to wait for some of my powders that are on order. For now, I’ve found a greens powder in my local health store that has quite a few of these ingredients (but not all, and certainly not all in the correct measurements). Thanks for the beorganic.ro recommendation.

    When I follow the recipe exactly, I’ll post here to let you know how it went!

    Paula.

    • Thanks Paula! I’m glad you like this smoothie recipe. Where are you from? Beorganic.ro is from Romania, don’t know if they ship to other countries but I can ask them if you want. They have affordable prices for the quantities they sell but I don’t know how much the transportation to other countries will cost.

    • Ah and btw, love your recent Double Green Smoothie recipe. Too bad I can’t find kale here in Romania :(

  3. My family members always say that I am killing my
    time here at web, but I know I am getting know-how everyday
    by reading thes pleasant posts.

  4. I doesn’t look gross at all, it looks fresh and healthy! Where did you get the wheat grass powder from?
