The return to the normal activities we used to do before the pandemic hit is back on the rise. We continue to get busier and, as expected, we can sometimes feel a lack of the energy we need to complete our daily activities successfully. After all, we have spent a long time not doing the usual things we used to do regularly. When you need a push to continue the day, nothing is better than a smoothie full of natural energy boosters. Here we’ll share with you a delicious fruit and protein smoothie that, aside from energizing, can help boost your immune system.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of cubed pineapple (fresh or frozen)

  • ½ ripe banana

  • 1 orange

  • 1 scoop protein powder

  • Contents of 1 vitamin B12 capsule

  • Contents of 1 vitamin C capsule

  • Contents of 1 zinc capsule

  • Contents of 1 echinacea capsule

  • 1 cup of filtered or boiled water (or almond or coconut milk if you prefer)

  • Ice (Optional)

  • Stevia (Optional)

Instructions:

Juice the orange and cut the half banana into pieces. Place in the blender with a few ice cubes and the pineapple chunks. Add the scoop of protein powder along with the contents of the 4 capsules, the water or non-dairy milk, and stevia to taste. Blend for a spectacular smoothie!

What is this smoothie good for?

  • Vitamin B12 is essential for cellular energy production. Long-term deficiency of this vitamin can have adverse effects during pregnancy, particularly on vascular, cognitive, bone, and eye health. (1)

  • Studies have shown that consuming vitamin C daily has a positive effect on the immune system and reduces the likelihood of respiratory infections. (2)

  • Pineapple juice, aside from being refreshing, contains vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, and several micronutrients necessary for good health. (3)

  • Another important element for the proper functioning of the immune system is zinc, as this is an element that positively impacts its development and maintenance. (4)

  • Echinacea is a medicinal plant that can help strengthen the body's resistance to disease due to the positive effects it has shown on the immune system, some preclinical studies indicate. (5)

  • The banana is not only a very popular fruit, but it also contains antioxidants that protect the body from various types of oxidative stress. It also provides energy. (6)

  • Protein, on the other hand, helps our body recover muscle mass. (7)

When you have an intense day, full of activities with little time to enjoy your meals, try this smoothie. You will feel more energy throughout the day while helping to strengthen your defenses.

Let's be healthier, together.
