As soon as fall begins, I prep for that time of year when everyone seems to fall prey to cold and flu season, and I start reinforcing my immune system with tons of resistance-building foods. This smoothie is loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and superfoods that kick your immune system into overdrive, improve your gut health, and even help you feel better if you’re a little under the weather.

1 Serving


½ banana, peeled

¼ -inch piece fresh turmeric, peeled and chopped, or ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric

2 tablespoons Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla

½ cup (65 g) mixed berries, fresh or frozen

1 handful spinach

1 dried date, pitted or 2 teaspoons honey for added sweetness, if desired

2 teaspoons hemp seeds

1 teaspoon bee pollen

1 tablespoon almond butter or nut butter of choice

1 crack black pepper

½ cup almond milk



  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.


Most people don’t think of adding turmeric to their smoothies, but—OMG—once you do, you won’t go back. It adds antioxidants, obviously, but also a hit a flavor that will keep you coming back for more. This smoothie is also awesome with chia seeds, flax seeds, maca powder, protein powder, or just about any other add-in of your choice.
