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!

  • 1 scoop of Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein Powder
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
