Ginger, Carrot & Apple Smoothie
Ginger is a powerful and natural anti-inflammatory that helps reduce nasal swelling and other hay fever symptoms.
Here’s how to make this simple smoothie. It’s packed with beta-carotene from the carrots, which helped boost your immune system to fight against allergic reactions.
- 1.5 tablespoon freshly grated ginger root
- 2 medium carrots, grated
- 1 medium apple, cored
- 2 large handfuls of baby spinach
- 170-225ml spring water
Pour the spring water into your blender. Then add the soft fruit. Lastly, add the spinach.
Blend on high for 30 seconds or until smoothie reaches a creamy consistency.
Chia and Berry Smoothie
A diet rich in antioxidants and high in omega 3 essential fatty acids is generally anti-inflammatory and assists in alleviating allergies. Chia seeds are rich in both omega-3 fats, fibre and antioxidants, and they are an effective thickener for this mousse-style smoothie.
Place all ingredients into your food processor or blender and process until smooth and creamy.
Spoon into glasses and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Eat and enjoy!
