Boost your immune system with a Shamrock Kiwi Smoothie made with Complete Whey Protein!
Shamrock Kiwi Smoothie ingredients:
Blend together the items below:
1 scoop of Complete Whey Protein in the creamy vanilla flavor
1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
2 kiwi (use one for garnish by using a heart shaped cookie cutter)
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup of spinach
1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger (you can also use powdered ginger)
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
This smoothie is packed full of nutrients that help boost your immune system. Each serving of Complete Whey Protein contains Lactoferrin which helps boost your body's innate immunities by stimulating white blood cells in your digestive tract.
Benefits of Lactoferrin include:
Stimulation of the immune system
Acts as an antioxidant
Promotes beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract
Prevents damage related to aging
Regulates Iron Metabolism
Transports Vitamin B12 throughout the body
Kiwi and spinach contain Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is involved in many parts of the immune system. Vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, which help protect the body against infection.
Spinach has a high dose of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which help fight off infections as well as replenish the blood cells to give a boost to the immune system.
Ginger is a strong antioxidant that has been shown to naturally boost the immune system. It contains an array of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamins B3, B6, Vitamin C, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, folate and calcium.
Turmeric also has immense health benefits due to the active compound curcumin which has strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral effects. Turmeric improves digestion, detoxifies the liver and boosts immune system health.
For a completely vegan smoothie, substitute Complete Pea Protein for the Whey Protein and coconut cream instead of Greek yogurt.
For a rich chocolate Paleo smoothie, substitute Complete Paleo Protein for the Whey Protein.
