So you’ve got a cold, maybe paired with a cough and right now you’ll do anything for some relief. This smoothie will not only provide you that relief but help fight off the symptoms and combat your cold in an all-natural way.

Oh, and it’s delicious.

When you read over the ingredients, that may be somewhat difficult to trust that it tastes good, but it sure does. We tried it! We gulped that whole thing down. One of us even had a sore throat and vouches for its sweet relief.
