The leaves change color, fall to the ground and the sky alternates with the sun and clouds. Autumn is a season of change and, at the same time, of keeping still. We direct our gaze inward and listen to ourselves. We ask ourselves questions like: What do I need? What should I change in my life and what is just right the way it is. We also focus on our health. After an exciting and fast-paced summer, we take the time to change our diet and prepare for winter. Our so-called immune booster smoothies should not be missing. The preparation of a smoothie is a ritual that is celebrated in the house of bianco di puro. It starts with finding the right ingredients, which we prefer to buy at the market and in the organic department. When creating the Immunbooster Smoothie recipes, we stick to a high nutrient density and delicious taste. We would like to recommend three immune-boosting smoothies that sweeten everyday life and give our system power for the day.
Green immune booster smoothie with bianco di puro vacuum pump
Green, green, green is all we have! We prepare this immune booster smoothie with those green ingredients:
- two leaves of romaine lettuce
- a green apple
- a pear
- two stalks of celery
- 500ml water
The quantities given are sufficient for two smoothies. Important when preparing the green smoothie: to work with our vacuum pump. This prevents the food to be mixed from oxidizing and important vitamins and nutrients from being lost. Best to drink the green smoothie in the morning on an empty stomach.
Being mindful while preparing the smoothie
We prefer to have our Immune Booster Smoothies in the morning. It is important to enjoy the smoothie and not let it drown in the hustle and bustle. Because if we eat and drink mindfully, we feel pure in ourselves and can hear what our body wants to tell us. This is particularly important when preparing smoothies. Sometimes our body is not ready to absorb a lot of bitter substances or fructose, for example. Therefore, when we prepare our smoothie, it is important to listen to ourselves, to consciously feel with every sip whether we are giving our body the nutrients it needs. If you are looking for a hot wake-up call in the morning, we recommend our orange power immune smoothie:
- ½ papaya
- a peeled lemon
- a thumb-sized piece of ginger
- 500ml water
Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant smoothie with turmeric
This smoothie is full of vitamins and nutrients. The turmeric root is our queen in this smoothie. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and soothes our stomach and helps with digestion. It is recommended that you do not consume more than one teaspoon of fresh or dried turmeric per day. Since turmeric has a slightly bitter taste, we like to mix the root with fruit. Therefore, this immune booster smoothie is made with:
- two peeled oranges
- ½ mango
- 1 teaspoon turmeric (fresh or in powder form)
- 500ml water
All smoothie recipes make two servings. At bianco di puro, we prefer to drink the revitalizing smoothies in the morning, mindfully and consciously. So you start the day stronger and full of energy.
