Grapefruit Ginger Smoothie

standard January 14, 2015 Leave a response

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.
