The superfood behind immune-boosting smoothies

Good nutrition can keep children from getting infected with all the bugs that are prevalent this winter. There are smoothies with superfoods that not only provide extra protection, but also help you recover faster if you do get sick.


Green flowering vegetables such as kale, cabbage, and broccoli are considered cruciferous vegetables. Blending cruciferous vegetables in a smoothie blender breaks down the cell walls causing a chemical reaction that has been shown to have powerful immune-boosting effects. is shown.

I used spinach in my smoothie (for those who want a cabbage smoothie).


I used pomegranate juice in this smoothie.

Pomegranate juice and seeds have antioxidant and anticancer effects, including interference with tumor cell proliferation, life cycle invasion, and angiogenesis. Research over the past decade has shown pomegranate benefits in treating and preventing cancer, cardiovascular disease, bacterial infections, and UV-induced skin damage.


Brightly colored berries such as raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries have similar benefits to pomegranates. There are many studies showing the ability of dark berries to inhibit tumor growth in cancer patients. However, it is possible that dark berries can also block viruses, although more research is needed!


I used flaxseed in my smoothie. Flaxseeds offer amazing benefits from omega-3 fatty acids alone, but they also contain powerful immune boosters called lignans. They bind to estrogen receptors, interfere with cancer, and have powerful antioxidant properties.


Mangoes contain over 20 vitamins and minerals, making them a clear superfood. These are great sources of Vitamin C, which is known to support a healthy immune system.

Other superfoods I didn’t include in my smoothie (for obvious reasons) are mushrooms, garlic, and onions. That way, you’ll get all the benefits of these immune-boosting superfoods!

Ingredients for immune smoothie

Ingredients for immune-boosting smoothies:

  • spinach– Kale can also be used here, but not all kids love the taste! Nutritionally they are very similar.
  • pomegranate juice– Pomegranate juice is nutritious, but very tangy. If your child doesn’t like it, you can substitute it with juice.
  • frozen mixed berries– I used a mix of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries.
  • frozen mango– Frozen mangoes add sweetness and a creamy texture to smoothies.
  • flax meal– Use flax flour instead of flax seeds. The body doesn’t absorb the seeds well and they don’t always blend well in a blender.
