Cabbage Smoothie That Helps Fight Colds

Have you recently caught a cold? Or trying to avoid catching one? This cabbage smoothie is just the remedy you need!

Here’s some of the main ingredients and their benefits:

  • Beets are loaded with antioxidants like vitamin C, which can help boost your immune system.
  • Flaxseed oil contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids; having a proper balance of these fatty acids is important for brain function and heart health.
  • Oranges are packed with vitamin C which is one the main things your body needs to boost its immune system.

Why a cabbage smoothie?

We are HUGE fans of putting leafy greens in smoothies. Leafy greens aid in digestion with the added fiber, and are packed with protein (among many other nutrients)!

Cabbage is no different, but its extra amounts of vitamin C and K make it truly unique.

Being a cruciferous leafy green, cabbage has been linked with being able to reduce inflammation—even chronic inflammation. It’s loaded with antioxidants that help to fight for the good of your body!

    I love this recipe! My kids will guzzle it down too, lol! The only question I have is if there’s a good substitute for the flaxseed oil? I haven’t actually put that in because I never buy it, ha!

    Hey Allison,

    If you are not a fan of flax seed oil you can totally swap it for coconut oil instead!

    Hope that helps 🙂
