My go to Smoothie when feeling unwell

My go to Smoothie when feeling unwell Floralesque

When I start to feel a bit under the weather or I feel the flu coming on I have a go to smoothie recipe that I make. It’s delicious and also I find has helped me ward off illness (it could be the vitamin C content!) but be warned it can be very sweet.

So in my smoothie is the following:

  • Oranges – about 2-3 oranges depending on their size. I just peel them and then cut them into quarters and drop them in.
  • Lemon – I add about a quarter of a lemon
  • Honey – I add about 2 tablespoons of honey
  • Water – the base liquid that I use for this one is water as if ill I don’t like a really thick smoothie and often it will be warm (not boiling!) water
  • Sometimes I will also add in a few berries, carrots, ginger or turmeric as well

It’s a quick smoothie to make and it has made me feel better on many an occasion. I like when I look up recipes when feeling off weather that they are not complicated and you can just rock and make it.
