Immune Boosting Smoothie!

This healthy, delicious and creamy immune-boosting smoothie made with pineapple, orange, banana, lemon juice, orange peel, turmeric, ginger, and almond milk.  It's naturally sweetened with frozen fruit and loaded with vitamins and antioxidants that help keep the immune system in tip-top shape (goodbye colds)! My daily smoothies usually consist of some or all of these ingredients and I keep most ingredients in the freezer ready to go.

  • 1/2 organic orange
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 banana (can use a frozen banana)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 piece orange peel (about 1/4 inch piece)
  • 1 piece fresh ginger (about 1/4 inch piece)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric (or use small piece fresh turmeric)
  • pinch ground black pepper (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Gather, measure ingredients and add to a blender.

  2. Blend until completely smooth and consume.

Recipe Notes

Tips and Substitutions:

  • You could substitute another non-dairy milk.
  • Substitute extra pineapple for the banana.
  • Try adding a handful of greens, like spinach, which you cannot taste, but will give added vitamins.
  • Add a pinch of black pepper which is reported to increase turmeric's effectiveness.
  • If the smoothie is too thick, add a bit more liquid (water or dairy-free milk).  If the smoothie is too thin, add more frozen fruits or ice.
  • Swap out the fruits used for what you have on hand.  (E.g. Pineapple for mango, orange for strawberry, blueberries, etc..).
  • Freeze ingredients - cut the skin off an organic orange, cut into small pieces and put in a ziplock baggie.  Do the same with fresh ginger root.
  • Add some honey (Manuka or raw is great) or maple syrup if the smoothie is not sweet enough for you.
