  1. Watermelon Mojito

Blend watermelon and mint in a smoothie to create this super-healing combo. Watermelon Mojito generally has an indulgent taste and can serve as a powerful antioxidant, thanks to the presence of lycopene – a powerful substance that helps cells perform better by fighting against degenerative diseases. Mint is an active type herb that helps to break up mucus and phlegm. It contains a natural decongestant called “menthol.” When you need to clear your sinuses, you can add lime juice and mango to blend up this treat.

  1. Banana Spice

When it comes to boosting immunity, Banana Spice is the ultimate! Help your body to detoxify naturally, aid digestion, and reduce inflammation by simply adding half-inch chunk of fresh ginger to your green smoothies. Other health benefits include reduced pain from menstruation, arthritis and lots more. Add cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and banana to the blended coconut milk and spinach and blend again. Consider this immune boosting smoothie as an anti-inflammatory, immunity booster, and an all-natural ibuprofen.

  1. Orange & Goji Berry Booster

All citrus fruits are generally known to be a powerful antioxidant. They are richly packed with Vitamin C. Another rich source of antioxidants is Goji berries.
