Citrus Immune-Booster

You must try this recipe, trust me! The colour is um, well... a little intense, but I can assure you it doesn’t taste too green! As long as you like citrus, you’ll love this super-juice. With goji berries as one of the key superfoods in this recipe, you’ll be getting an extra-huge hit of vitamin C, vitamin B2, vitamin A, iron, selenium and other antioxidants.

Gojis are said to help boost your immune system and brain activity and, as part of a healthy diet, may help protect against heart disease. They are amazingly good for the adrenal glands!

The Number 2 superfood in this drink is spirulina! Again helping boost your immune system, this blue-green algae are said to help safeguard you against viral infections and the like! It’s packed with highly digestible protein, iron, essential fatty acids and antioxidants and has a high vitamin and mineral content. It contains 65-71% protein, the highest concentration of protein in any food.

Spirulina’s protein is four times more digestible and absorbable than meat! Feed your system this antioxidant, vitamin C- and protein-packed amazingness to help you fight off all those colds and ’flu. Your winters will never be the same!


2 tablespoons goji berries, soaked in 1⁄4 cup filtered water for 30 minutes and stirred a few times.

1⁄4 cup filtered water.

150ml freshly squeezed ruby grapefruit juice.

100ml freshly squeezed orange juice.

2 tablespoons lemon juice.

12mm piece fresh ginger.

1-2 teaspoons spirulina or other green powder of your choice.


1. Place softened berries and soaking water in a blender with the remaining ingredients and blend until combined.

Tip! If you haven’t tried spirulina before, use only 1 teaspoon until you get used to the taste. Even though the colour is striking with just 1 teaspoon (as in this photo), the spirulina flavour doesn’t dominate. And you’ll find two teaspoons is even quite pleasant!
