Get ready for a chilly night out with your little trick-or-treaters with this spicy, immunity-boosting smoothie!
Fresh ginger is an excellent cold-buster and tummy-soother, and cayenne possesses anti-irritant, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-flu properties (you can always go light on the cayenne and ginger too if you're sensitive to spiciness). The healing Berry Bee Honey adds a bit of sweetness to counterbalance the spice and has natural antibiotic properties, while the coconut butter brings in healthy MCT fats, helps take out some of the kick, and adds the lovely creaminess. And with its high vitamin C levels, Berry Bliss packs in a load of antioxidants, which combat free radicals and keep our immune system cells safe.
