This detox and immune boosting smoothie packs a nice dose of antioxidants and vitamin C. It is not just for drinking during the cold and flu season, but great during all seasons with mildly sweet and refreshing orange flavor and no added fake sugar. It became one of my favorites, because it is quick and easy to make and kids love it too!
The simple list of ingredients are: It has kiwis, strawberries, carrots, oranges, apples, and apple cider vinegar.
Why this simple “Detox and Immune Boosting Smoothie" is so powerful?
Kiwis are high in vitamin C, which is an important immune-boosting nutrient, as well as in vitamin E, which, helps increase your body's T-cell count (that’s your immune system baby).
Strawberries are full of antioxidants and vitamin C, both of which are excellent for fighting free radicals.
Carrots are a powerful immune system builder. They help the body build resistance to germs, viruses, bacteria, and infections.
Oranges are chock-full of Vitamin C which is one of the best detox vitamins around.
Apples contain a flavonoid called quercetin which has been shown to significantly improve your immune system.
Apple cider vinegar has so many health benefits, among them are helping to remove harmful environmental toxins that build up in the body, especially in the liver.

Kitchen Life hack: Pre-make this smoothie ahead so you have it right out of the fridge first thing in the morning. I recommend to store it prepared in a mason jar with lids to preserve the freshness and vitamins.
Store your fresh fruits and vegetables in Rubbermaid FreshWorks BPA-free containers, instead of store bought plastic containers.
