Grapefruit Ginger Smoothie

There is nothing worse than being fine one day and completely miserable the next. Why do crazy winter colds sneak up on you so fast? There was nothing I wanted today except hot lemon cayenne tea and frosty citrus smoothies. A little contradictory, I know.

One of my favorite cold-busting smoothies is this simple one. I took the flavors and added a boost of vitamin C from the grapefruit and carrot and a little extra electrolytes and hydration from the coconut water. Ginger, hemp, and rooibos round out the powerhouse nutrients to get this cold gone FAST.
