Cold Buster Smoothie

Trying to fight the plague too? It is that time of year. I'm a big fan of natural remedies for fighting colds. Food is medicine!

3/4 frozen orange
1 frozen banana
2-3 chunks of pineapple
3 ice cubes
As much freshly grated ginger as you can handle
1 tsp tumeric
1/2 cup almond milk

Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth! 

Here's a couple other natural remedies also:

  • You may sweat garlic and lose a couple friends for the day after you do this but pan roasting a bulb of garlic with olive oil and sea salt has helped me fight the common cold and it works, I swear! Garlic is an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral all-in-one!
  • I try to drink plenty of echinacea tea and "throat coat" made by Traditional Medicinals.
  • inc and Emergency or Airborne are also quick and easy remedies packed with lots of vitamins.
