Boost your health with this healing elixir! Red cabbage (the purple kind) contains anthocyanins, which studies have shown help suppress inflammation. Elderberry extract is a natural cold and flu fighter, which is why it’s always in our fridge! It is also called Sambucus and is considered a natural alternative to synthetic cough-and-cold syrups.
(Makes 2 servings)
2 c chopped red cabbage
1 c water
1 orange, peeled
1 c blackberries
1 tsp elderberry extract
- Blend the cabbage, water, and orange until smooth.
- Add the blackberries, banana, and elderberry extract and blend again.
Tip: Try red cabbage microgreens—studies show that they can have more vitamin C than full-grown cabbage.
