This smoothie is simple to make, and jammed pack with antioxidants, making it the perfect immune booster smoothie! Blueberries are full of flavonoids, which gives them their dark colour, and flavonoids are amazing for heart health since they are a strong antioxidant. Adding a whole orange rather than just the juice, ups the nutritional content, and adds fiber. Spinach is of course an amazing superfood, full of essential nutrients, and ginger gives an extra boost to the immune system! Coconut water and the banana are full of potassium, which is an electrolyte, so this smoothie is also great as a recovery drink after exercise to replenish electrolytes. Enjoy!
