If you or someone you love is sick right now, do them a huge flavour favour and share this recipe with them ♥ It will really help and it tastes yumaroo!
Having a cold and being sick totally sucks! To tell you the truth, I haven’t been sick in over a year now since going through my detox. Even though Caleb and I have travelled a ton, been on planes with sick people and circulating air for hours, we even sat on greyhound bus for a few hours with someone hacking up a storm next to us, we just don’t catch that stuff anymore.
So, if you’re sick right now and you want to get better fast. Here’s a green smoothie that will kick that cold to the curb and help you cut your sick days down to 0 if you make green smoothies part of your daily routine.
- 2 Cups Fresh Pineapple
- 1 Frozen Ripe Bananas
- 1 Cup Coconut Milk (you may need a bit more if you want a thinner consistency)
- 2 Tbsp Shredded Coconut
- 1 Cup Kale
Instructions: Put all ingredients in the Vitamix with the frozen bananas at the top, pour the liquid in and blend on high for about 30 seconds or less and serve.
