Immune Boosting Herbal Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

The season change is a good time for immune boosting!

The “father of medicine,” Hippocrates, once said “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” It is so darn easy to boost and support your immune system with food!

Pumpkins are a great super food to help boost your immune system. Rich in antioxidants, beta carotene, and vitamins C and E and the requisite pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, ginger, and cloves) all have antiseptic and antibacterial properties, making them perfect for this smoothie.

Ingredients for Immune Boosting Smoothie:

  • 4 frozen bananas (easiest is to freeze them already sliced)
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 2-4 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1-2 cups of coconut milk (you can substitute water or another non-dairy milk, but avoid using dairy milk as dairy causes the production of phlegm)
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil to get more omega 3′s and fatty acids
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger root
  • 1 tsp. fresh turmeric root (or ½ tsp.dried powder)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cloves powder
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg powder
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


  • In a blender, combine 1 cup coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk) with all of the other ingredients.
  • Blend until smooth , drink and enjoy!

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
