My boys are unfortunately down with the flu. We don’t get colds or the flu or other bugs very often (touch wood) but when we do we try and get rid of them as quickly as possible and as naturally as possible. During these times of illness I try and make lots of bone broths, chicken soup, salt gargles, salt nasal sprays, oil pulling with coconut oil and just taking it really, really easy. One of their favourite ‘feeling better’ remedies is our Energy Boost drink. This has lots of vitamin C and energy fruits to get them back on their feet..
Winter Energy Boost Drink
INGREDIENTS: handful of ice (optional), x1 banana, 150ml of freshly squeezed orange juice, 150ml organic apple juice, x4 strawberries
METHOD: I use a thermomix but you can easily use a food processor for this recipe. Put the ice and the banana into the thermomix bowl and mix for 20 seconds on speed 8-10. Add all the other ingredients to the thermomix bowl and mix for 20 seconds on speed 9. It’s as easy as that! Enjoy!!
