Immune Boosting Smoothie

During the Autumn/Winter season our immune system has to work that little bit harder fighting the invasion of colds & coughs viruses.   To keep your immunity in tip top health, try this delicious smoothie.   

Really easy to make - all you need is a hand blender.

* 2 handfuls fresh, washed spinach
* quarter inch piece of ginger - peeled & finely chopped (optional, can be omited if you don't like ginger)
* 1 ripe pear roughly chopped (core & stalk removed)
* 1 inch slice cucumber - chopped
* 1 ripe banana - peeled of course!
* optional half ripe avocado (de-stoned & skin removed)
* fresh orange juice - add to suit

Place all fruits & veggies plus a little of the orange juice in a large jug & blend together.  Add more orange juice as you keep blending until you get a consistency you're happy with.  If you like your smoothies thick like yoghurt, don't add too juice, or, keep adding the liquid until you get a consistency you like. Sip & Enjoy -  you're getting your 4 of your 5 a day!
