A Superfood Smoothie to see you through the Winter

The fluffy slippers are out and the heating is on which means Winter has arrived and we are only a sneeze away from the dreaded common cold. In this day and age we don’t even have time to sit down let alone take a week off work.

One of the most important things you can do is fuel yourself with the right nutrients to protect yourself during the colder months and my favourite way of getting a big shot of goodness has always been smoothies. As a child I was never big on fruit and veg so this has become the easiest process for me to cram as much goodness into me enjoyably.

The Key ingredients for this smoothie are quinoa which is high in protein, antioxidants, and amino acids to name a few. Activia, whilst also adding a delicious flavour to the smoothie is also full of probiotic bacteria to boost your immune system and protect your body against colds and germs  and finally blueberries, another antioxidant powerhouse containing up to 24% of your recommended daily amount of vitamin C.

I love starting my day with smoothies especially ice cold ones to wake you up like a freezing shower but instead backed with lots of goodness so at the moment I’m shoving all of this in my Nutribullet first thing in the morning.

    I am going to try this smoothie. I usually make this type of smoothie but without the quinoa.
    I usaully drink green tea more in the winter time. It protects me from the common cold and flu virus and more.
    Thank you for this post Lydia!
