Nothing screams summertime like all things citrus. This Immune Boosting Vitamin C Smoothie will give you all the summer feels as it’s loaded with vitamin C (hence the name), is super refreshing with hints of lemon, lime, and vanilla.

I even like to add a scoop of vanilla plant protein if I have this after a workout or yoga class. Vanilla hemp protein is deeeelicious too. If you’re ever looking for a good one I like the Trader Joe’s brand. It never disappoints.

Even in the summer we still have to watch out for the flu and other  pesky viruses. There’s nothing worse than being sick in the summer, it totally sucks. But instead of whipping up a hot latte on a musky, ass wet, hot summer day, you can have this waiting for you ready to keep you cool and give your immune system the boost it always needs.

On the days we head out to the beach I pack us all the things like veggie wraps, chopped up fruit like watermelons, pineapples, grapes, berries, etc. Then I stack another cooler with smoothies like this one because we get super thirsty on the sand. Plus being out in the sun all day you need to stay nice and hydrated. This will keep you glowing to as it’s like dessert for our hair skin and nails.
