And you’ve probably had your fair share of making them. But let me reassure you that this recipe is unlike any of them. In fact, it might very well taste just like a previous smoothie you’ve made; however, this recipe is packed with a super powerful antioxidant that will help support your child’s immune system. So if your kiddo tends to get sick often or you’re just looking for a natural way to prevent them from getting sick, this ones for you mama. I’ll be sharing what the secret ingredient is with you in a bit but before we get to that, I wanted to share my testimony.

 

Our girls were getting sick constantly more so since our oldest is now in Elementary School and brings home all the school germs with her. It was doctor appointment after doctor appointment and rounds of antibiotics that I realized I needed to put an end to it. So at my wits end, I started to search online for natural alternatives to build up their immune system. I saw the usual probiotics and vitamins which I had previously tried and yes it helped a bit but it did not prevent them from getting sick still.

 

So while at a conference, I came across a booth that had an elderberry crystal. They mentioned how great it was for the immune system. My ears perked up and I immediately asked if they had any for kids. And to my surprise, they did! They gave me a handful of samples to take home and try out. That very same day when I got home from my conference and made smoothies with it. Trust me when I say my girls did not even notice it in their smoothies. It’s been 3 months we’ve been using it and have not gotten sick since. So you bet I’ve stocked up on this powerful antioxidant.

And if you’re kiddos are not really into smoothies, make popsicles out of them or add the crystals to a berry yogurt and even juice. 😉

    Your story is like our story. We should have VIP parking at the doctors office as we have not missed much since November. I’ve tried everything natural because I’m done with antibiotics for my little ones so frequently. Can’t wait to try this. Thank you for sharing!

  • It’s no surprise I’m a huge Las Vegas fan—and with good reason. Where else can you go watch a concert, gamble, rent a pool party cabana, eat at a five star restaurant at midnight, dance the night away plus get room service at any given time? .
These are just a few reasons why I continue to come back. And since I’m a December baby and love Vegas, pools and summer weather, I thought it would be fitting to celebrate a 1/2 birthday in Sin City right before I hit the big 4-0 (gulp!). .

  • 💦Are you team pool or team beach? 🏖 ¿ Eres equipo alberca (piscina) o equipo playa? .

I definitely love both but not a fan of bringing the beach sand home. 😆 We loved staying at @omnilacosta in Carlsbad, CA as they have a sandy beach family pool. It’s truly the best of both worlds. 🙌😉 #ad #omnilacosta #sandiego #familytravel
  • #ad  Where do your kids do their school and art work? For us, it's definitely the kitchen. So it made sense to create a workstation that stores our kiddos art, crafts and school materials in our kitchen island. The best part? It's easy for them to pull things out of the cabinet and place them on top of the counter as well as put everything back away. Plus, I'm also loving how @Clorox Disinfecting Wipes help me to clean, disinfect and refresh this workspace.

Mia our 7 yr old has been at summer camp at a university campus. And truth be told this is not how Lexi and I have been spending our time. I was a hot mess Monday and Lexi has been crying every morning.🙈 We know she’s having a blast in her robotics/ stem classes and making friends. So for now, I’m going to try my best to spend some quality time with my youngest. ☺️ Are you’re kids in summer camp? Were you also stressed out about leaving them? 😆 #summercamp #momlife #summer #momofgirls #summertime #summermemories #wearthesuit
