Build your immunity with this simple smoothie. Bursting with ginger and lime, make this a morning staple and switch up the greens for a different hit of nutrients. I usually don’t have smoothies in winter. It is the last thing you want to consume on a chilly morning, but… when I feel a little run down this is the recipe I head for. I then follow it with a ginger tea or another warming drink. 

Kiwi Dreaming Winter Smoothie


  • 2 kiwi fruit

  • 1 thumb of ginger (TIP: you can easily peel ginger skin using a teaspoon)

  • 1 – 2 limes, juice or cut into quarters and peel skin off like an orange

  • 1 lemon, juice or cut into quarters and peel skin off like an orange

  • 1/2 – 1 apple

  • Handful of your greens of choice – parsley, cos lettuce, baby spinach, or kale

  • 1 cucumber

  • 1/2 cup of water or coconut water

  • 1 handful of ice


  • Chop and peel your bounty of produce

  • Add to your blender and blend on high for 2 minutes
