Immune Boosting Smoothie:

This vegan, plant based smoothie is filled with alkalinizing goodness to help keep your immune system strong and your body energized in the cold weather. The combo of mint, frozen banana and tahini butter give it a smooth, creamy, tingling taste.

*1/2 frozen banana
*1 tbsp raw tahini butter (offers calcium and protein)
*1 scoop Sunwarrior vanilla plant based protein powder (for best muscle recovery)
*Handful of fresh mint (mint is a blood cleanser, detoxifier, and helps with respiratory issues)
*Drop of real vanilla, or a small piece of fresh vanilla pod (fresh vanilla pod reduces inflammation and contains antioxidants)
*2-3 cups of unsweetened coconut milk, or almond milk

Add a handful of ice and blend away for a creamy minty, protein packed, immune boosting delight!
