Winter Smoothie Recipe - stop a cold before it hits
"Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food" - said Hippocrates of Kos, the most famous physician of antiquity. Especially in winter, when so many people have a cold or are fighting a scratchy throat, this more than 2000 year old maxim is more relevant than ever. We therefore recommend our winter smoothie against colds - an exotic mixture with ginger, turmeric and lots of vitamin C - We are sure: Hippocrates would have loved to taste it.
Winter smoothie with extra vitamin C
While the spiciness of ginger stimulates the metabolism and warms you from the inside, earthy turmeric can strengthen the immune system with its antibacterial properties.
In the fight against a cold, however, we need one thing above all: plenty of vitamin C, which supports our defenses. That's why our winter smoothie relies on strong sources of vitamin C such as the winter salad Indian lettuce, parsley and the citrus fruits lime and orange. If you can't find Indian lettuce, spinach or any type of cabbage is also suitable as vitamin C-rich leafy green.
In terms of taste, our winter smoothie is a journey to warm tropical beaches: lime, ripe pineapple, banana and avocado give this Winter Smoothie a wonderfully exotic aroma. Natural medicine can taste so good.
CAUTION: Fresh turmeric and turmeric powder can discolor the blender jar yellowish. However, this is not a cause for concern, as the discoloration will fade over time - after a few uses.
