This recipe is designed with specific ingredients your body will benefit from during the winter months. You can find ripe bananas year round due to the fact that they are one of the few fruits that can fully ripen off the tree. In addition to that the banana’s potassium acts as an electrolyte, which will contribute to the smoothies immune boosting qualities .

INGREDIENTS

1 cup Coconut Water
1 teaspoon Bee Pollen
1 teaspoon maca powder
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder nibs  or powder
1 Banana
1-2 teaspoons raw Honey ( depends on your sweet tooth )
10 drops liquid Echinacea
10 drops liquid Asragalus

Add all ingredients to blender and mix until smooth. Can’t get easier than that!

Superfoods have become a common ingredient in smoothies and for good reasons – each superfood will provide the body with a complex supply of quality nutrients, antioxidants and minerals. When these superfoods are combined with the herbs and raw honey in this smoothie, your body will get an immune boost to help get you through the winter flu free.
