“Cold Buster” Smoothies

In all honesty, I am not sure these would help you bust a cold, but my 13 year old son swears it does. He’s the only kid that didn’t catch the cold that took down his mom and sisters, so maybe he’s on to something drinking these.

It’s also a pretty delicious  way to enjoy the gorgeous oranges in my CSA box.


Pretty simple stuff.


four oranges, peeled

1 cup whole, raw milk

1/4 cup real maple syrup

1 cup raw cream (he has also used vanilla yogurt and loves it)

4 raw *pastured* egg yolks (like, from a farm…not a factory)

2 tsp vanilla

1-2 cups ice

Blend until creamy and frothy. Serves two to three.

Vitamin C, natural probiotics from the raw milk, protein from the eggs and just enough sweetness to make you feel like you’re getting away with something.

Sounds good to me, cold or not.
