Autumn Immunity Boosting Smoothie with Needed's Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein

As the weather cools off, I’m all about adding some go-to immunity boosters to my smoothies.  Most drinks we reach for in the cooler months are full of added sugars and unhealthy ingredients so I wanted to make sure to include a healthy but still balanced way to nourish as the weather changes.

This Autumn Immunity Boosting Smoothie is …

  • gluten-free
  • high in fiber
  • free from added sugar
  • immunity-boosting
  • protein-packed
  • blood sugar-balancing
  • and delicious!


*serves 2

1 cup pureed pumpkin

1 frozen banana

½ tsp turmeric

¼ tsp cinnamon

1 ½ tsp ground ginger

1 tbsp ground flax seeds

¾  cup unsweetened almond milk

2 navel oranges (peeled)

1 tsp maple syrup (optional)

1-2 scoop of Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein Powder


Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until creamy. Pour into glasses and enjoy!

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Smoothies are best stored in a glass container filled all the way to the top.
