Fight the Bug this Holiday Season With Our Three Flu-Fighting Fruit Smoothies

Fight the flu with Ener-C!

Health & Wellness

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Jack Frost nipping at your nose? You know what that means – the holidays are here. With everyone in high spirits from all of the gift-giving, caroling, and eating, it seems like nothing can bring down your festive attitude during the Winter.

But fast forward three days later and you may find yourself hovering over the toilet and puking your guts out. Why? It’s flu season, baby.

With the bug on the prowl, it’s time for you to be proactive to keep your immune system in check.  Fortunately, The MIX teamed up with Ener-C and created three flu-fighting smoothies so you can spend time with your friends and family, instead of dying in the bathroom by your lonesome self.

Feel free change up the consistency of your smoothing by adjusting the amount of ice or dairy-free milk you incorporate in your drink. Try all three recipes at home and let us know which one is your favourite! If smoothies just aren’t your thing, you can still reap the benefits of Ener-C by simply mixing your favourite packet into a glass of water.
