- I know a few people  that are  drinking collard green smoothies. Is this the same?


I believe that with the proper fruit, vegetable, and spice/herb blend, you can build immunity.  You definitely need to up your vitamin D levels to do so and I believe vitamin C and zinc.  I have a book that list which food is good for the immunity but it is away from me but I will come back and post it for you.

This will not keep in the frigde.  I have tried to make some to last me a week once.  Was unpalatable by day two.  The reason why is that the enzymes that occur in the fruits and vegetables break down the pureed smoothie rather quickly unless you cook it which deactivates it.  So make a small amount daily so it will save you money in the long run.

Yeah the collard green smoothie is the same concept, just different ingredients used.  Some people blend apples, collard greens, ginger, honey, and carrots to make a immunity boosting smoothie.  But don't quote me on that is the exact ingredients for boosting immunity.  You can do a search on youtube, google, eatingwell.com, etc for ideas.  Meanwhile let me post those immunity fighting foods.

dates
figs

onions
garlic

The ones that have asterisks are the ingredients I have seen in green smoothies.  I hope this helps somewhat rissa86.

I love my green smoothies. I don't add any sugar, milks, yogurt, juice or anything like that.

My usual mix is:
2 cups of leafy greens (kale, spinach, etc.; usually frozen)
2 cups of fruit (mango, oranges, strawberries, peaches, banana, etc)
chia seeds (1-2 scoops...this is where I get my omega 3/6 and they help me feel fuller longer which is great because the fruit digests so quickly)
ice

It could be if someone is sensitive to the oxalic acids in a number of leafy greens.

I read through this entire thread over 2 days and made my first batch of green smoothie tonight. It was delish!
 
Water
Hands full of spinach and kale
chopped cucumbers
A few raspberries, strawberries, peaches, blueberries,
4tbs - hemp protein powder
2 tbls - pure honey (which I don't think I needed)
 
I plan on drinking on in the morning and at night every day. Can't wait til I see how feel in the morning!
