Flu fighter

Recipes of chocolate cake and a smoky pulled pork have gone on hold today as I try and fight off the bugs that my kids have been spreading round.  At least the sun is shining and there’s a distinct feel in the air that spring may be on it’s way.

I love my NutriBullet to get a few more serves of veges into my day. This one is packed with greens and vitamin C with a hit of ginger to fend off the colds…

Flu Fighter Smoothie

1 cup spinach greens, washed
1 cup pineapple, fresh or frozen (about 1/6 of a whole pineapple)
1/4 lemon, skin on
knob of ginger, to taste
coconut water to fill

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and there are no big bits of spinach.  I find this takes about 30-40 seconds. If you are using fresh pineapple you might want to add a small handful of ice cubes to chill the drink down.

Drink, and rest.

Feel free to substitute kale for spinach, and regular water for coconut water.
