If your spring allergies are coming on full force, we've got you covered. Last week was Allergies Week on mbg, and to take your allergy healing to the next level I'm sharing a recipe that's not only delicious but highly functional. Strawberries are high in vitamin C and polyphenols, both important in boosting the immune system. Using a locally grown honey can help boost your ability to fight off local allergens. Finally, using your favorite herbs, including mint, cilantro, or watercress, increases levels of quercetin, a natural antihistamine, and boosts antioxidant levels.

Here's the recipe:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries, whole or cut
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons watercress
  • 1 teaspoon mint leaves
  • ½ cup crushed ice (if not wanting ice, you can use frozen strawberries)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons local honey

Blend together for three minutes, pour, and enjoy!
