Smoothie Time

For the past week, I’ve had a cold and the chills.  Today the cough arrived.  Tis the season as some would say.

But I decided to fight back and try the Flu-Fighter Sunshine Smoothie from Oh She Glows. I received this cookbook at Christmas and I’ve already made a few things from it.

I love citrus and had all the ingredients to make this.  It was simple and quick to make.  Here’s what you need:   2 peeled oranges, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1-3 teaspoons of maple syrup, 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger, a pinch of cayenne pepper and a few ice cubes.  After a minute in the blender, it looked like this:

Gorgeous colour!

It tasted great and I’m already starting to feel better!  What makes you feel better when you have a cold or the flu?
