Tess’s Cold & Flu Fighting Green Mojito Smoothie + GIVEAWAY!
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

This smoothie from Tess Masters, aka The Blender Girl, is packed with cold and flu fighting ingredients – and is a perfect summer refreshment!

Tess is one of those truly lovely and generous people, who you can meet once and feel like you know their soul. She is a cookbook author, an actress, a voice over artist, and a general force of nature. If you haven’t seen her work before, go check her out now: The Blender Girl.

This smoothie comes from her latest book, The Blender Girl Smoothies. Here’s what Tess says about this smoothie:

“This is a cold-and-flu buster and potent detoxifier, all in one zesty cocktail! The bromelain in pineapple suppresses coughs and loosens mucus, while mint clears respiratory congestion, soothes sore throats, and alleviates nausea. The vitamin C in limes has antibiotic power, anti-inflammatories in kale and pineapple combat arthritis, and ginger boosts immunity, aids digestion, and adds a powerful zing.”
