6 Smoothies to support your immunity

14 Jun 2022 • 1 min read

Smoothies can help you reach your five-a-day in no time. And while there aren’t many rules as to what you should put in your blender, there are recipes you can follow that are designed to contribute to the normal function of your immune function.

Six smoothie recipes for immunity support

  1. Banana, clementine & mango smoothie

Vitamin C supports cellular functions within the immune system,1 helping to prevent infection.

You’ll find vitamin C in high supply in this bright orange smoothie, which blends clementine juice with mangoes for a vibrant summery drink that can be enjoyed any time of year.

If you can’t find clementines, just use satsumas or oranges instead.

  1. Triple berry kiwi smoothie

Not only does one kiwi have over 100% of your recommended intake of vitamin C,its juicy flesh is also packed with vitamin A and E to help strengthen your body’s defences.3 

This rich red smoothie is loaded with antioxidants, thanks to a trio of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.

  1. Smoothie with blueberries and oats

A perfect breakfast alternative, this flavourful oat smoothie goes further than fruits and leafy greens with turmeric and flax seeds.

Turmeric can help your body fight inflammation and when you add spinach and blueberries to the mix, you have a smoothie filled with superfoods!4

For a creamier consistency, add a dollop of fat-free Greek yoghurt.

  1. Wellness smoothie

We’re long-time advocates of manuka honey, which has been used in medicine for centuries for its antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities.5

And it’s this extra ingredient – along with vitamin-rich bananas, pineapple, turmeric root and a few other flavours – that gives this bright green smoothie a real edge.

  1. Mango ginger smoothie

Here’s another vibrant recipe that’s filled with tasty mango (frozen is fine) and leafy greens.

Don’t worry if you’re not a big spinach fan; you can hardly taste it behind the ginger and celery. This recipe is high in vitamins C and K, which can help to ease inflammation.6

  1. Antioxidant beet and berry smoothie

Beetroot is high in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C.7

It’s also been named one of the 10 most potent antioxidant vegetables.8

That’s particularly important because antioxidants have been shown to improve immune responses.9

Your body will thank you for this delicious smoothie recipe, made up of strawberries, apple juice and sliced banana. Haven’t got strawberries?

Try adding blueberries or raspberries instead. Have fun trying out these recipes and remember to check out our powdered superfoods range to take your smoothie game to the next level.
