It’s no secret that us at Be Mores are huge smoothie fans, but there’s one thing we’ve been testing at home lately – a health shot! It is the perfect combination of things that will boost our health during fall. The recipes were compiled by our super good nutritionist Julia.
What are the benefits of a health shot?
- Everything useful can fit in only one small shot
- Huge amount of different vitamins, minerals and nutrients
- Strong anti-viral and antibacterial effect
- Increases the resistance of the immune system
- Supports intestinal function
- It has an excellent anti-inflammatory effect
- Quick and easy to prepare
Powerful vitamin bomb
This health shot contains a lot of vitamin C, which can be obtained from both blackcurrant and Be Healthy mixture. The last one also contains other vitamins and plenty of minerals. Garlic is a good superfood that in many cases is left out of people’s diets only because of the very strong smell. Don’t be afraid of it or take a shot in the evening when there is no need to meet people anymore. Garlic boosts the immune system, strengthens body’s resistance, helps fight parasites and is very rich in nutrients. Honey and garlic are a good combination, which have a strong antibacterial and antiviral effect.
- 3 tablespoons of blackcurrants
- 1 medium garlic clove
- 0.5-1 tsp of honey
- 1 teaspoon of Be Healthy
- If necessary, add a little water
Add all the ingredients to the blender and crush. If the berries do not provide enough liquid, you can add a few tablespoons of water to make the shot more liquid. Enjoy fresh!
Vibrant citrus shot
Orange and lemon are rich in vitamin C, which relieves stress, fatigue and helps increase the body’s resistance. Collagen Edition Bucktorn’n’Lemon blend offers a variety of vitamins, minerals and nutrients and for a bonus you also get collagen. Honey has been used for therapeutic purposes since ancient times – it contains more than 400 useful compounds, such as organic acids, enzymes, phenolic compounds, amino acids, minerals, vitamins and others. Ginger helps speed up digestion, fights inflammation and relieves (joint) pain.
- About 0.5-1 cm ginger slice
- Half orange
- 1 teaspoon of Buckthorn’n’Lemon mixture
- 0.5 tsp of honey
Grate the ginger with a small grater, squeeze the juice out of the orange. Add the Be More lemon-sea buckthorn collagen mixture and honey and mix everything well. Enjoy!
