Cold Killer Smoothie

We are officially entering the season of colds and flu and for the past two days, I have kept one of my children at home from school due to a bad cold. With schools having to have windows opened to keep the air as free from coronavirus germs as possible, this introduces cold and drafty classrooms. So, I turned to look for a natural remedy to help fight off the cold and I found a great recipe to share with you from

Cold Killer Smoothie loaded with vitamin C, ginger, bananas, honey and spinach.


  • 1/2–3/4 cup water (or orange or pineapple juice)

  • 2 medium oranges, peel removed

  • 1/2 tsp – 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced

  • 1 cup spinach

  • 2 frozen bananas, sliced

  • Optional Add-ins:

  • 1/4–1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1–2 tsp raw honey

  • pinch cayenne pepper, turmeric


You could swap out the water for milk (almond, dairy, or coconut) for some creaminess. Or add 1 orange and 1 cup of frozen pineapple for a more tropical feel.
