Blueberry Vanilla Immunity Smoothie
It's that time of the year again. I swear September hits and my body goes: "Oh look it's fall now, time to get the seasonal head cold." Resting may be the most DIFFICULT part for me when I get sick so I aim to fuel it with foods that will keep my immune system strong. I made this Blueberry Vanilla Immunity Smoothie on my Instagram story yesterday with Hush Up & Hustle's Blender Bombs & it's the PERFECT combo of superfoods for an immunity boost. Helen of Hush Up & Hustle reached out to me and told me about her Blender Bombs and I was immediately interested. I drink a lot of protein shakes and smoothies so these are a great way for me to get extra nutrients from the natural ingredients included in the Blender Bombs without having to buy them all individually!
Here's what is in one of Hush Up & Hustle's Original Blender Bombs:
- local raw honey
- flax seeds
- hemp seeds
- chia seeds
- bee pollen
Not to mention: they actually taste GREAT by themselves as a little "energy bite" snack. You can check out Helen's website at www.hushupandhustle.com and her Instagram at @hushupandhustle.
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use UNICO NUTRITION. You can get 20% off with the discount code "BOWERS20" on www.uniconutrition.com)
- 8 ice cubes
- 1/2 a banana
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 tablespoon rolled oats
- 1/2 tablespoon almond butter
- a handful of spinach
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
BLEND all the ingredients until smooth and enjoy! Time to say bye to the seasonal head cold.
