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.


  1. Place all ingredients in blender in the order listed (start with 1/2 cup water/juice). Blend until quite smooth, scraping down the sides or adding more liquid as necessary.

  2. Taste and add vanilla, honey, cayenne, or turmeric as desired. Pulse to combine and serve immediately.

This is a great recipe for colds – a vitamin C shot from the oranges, cold creaminess from the bananas, some greens for extra nutrition, and a little ginger (and cayenne, if you like) to clear up your sinuses. Drink a big glass, or freeze it into popsicle moulds if you need to soothe a sore throat.
