How To Boost Your Immune System With Two Easy Recipes

As we drag ourselves through the dreary days of winter, our immune system can often become compromised and easily susceptible to colds and general winter blues.

Over here at Inner J we’re all about nourishing and warming out bodies by keeping our immune system as healthy as possible. So, we’re sharing two of our favourite immune boosters and would love for you to share your cold busting recipes with us, also!

We’ve already praised the benefits of apple cider vinegar for its ability to ward off colds, so to help keep you healthy, start your morning with a shot-sized goodness elixir.

Mix 1oz apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of ground ginger or a few chunks of fresh ginger, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and swoosh. Try warming it up, or adding warmed almond, coconut or hemp milk.

The combination of ginger and apple cider will definitely wake you up. But in a really, really good way.  Both honey and apple cider vinegar have antibacterial properties which is exactly what you need when you’re fighting off a cold, or aiming to keep your immune system going.

Another favourite concoction put together by Justyna, our lovely founder, is the chocolate chia pudding otherwise known as a superfood shazam because of all the beneficial cleansing spices, chia seeds and protein!

Coco Chia Pudding:
immunity booster
4 teaspoon Chia
1/2 cup of almond milk or nut milk of your choice or coconut water depending on how thick you like the pudding
1-2 teaspoon goji berries
1 teaspoon maca
1 teaspoon lucuma
1 teaspoon tulsi leaf powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2-1 Aloha superfood Chocolate or natural protein powder
You can also add a teaspoon or raw honey or coconut nectar to sweeten.

Mix all the ingredients together in a mason jar with the liquid going in first. Shake and let it sit in the fridge. The chia will expand and gelatanize for an awesome creamy pudding. Shake it again before you eat and enjoy the nutrients.
