Notes

Elderberries have antiviral properties.  You can purchase, click here, as a powder or syrup.  The container will tell you how much one serving is.  If you are using fresh elderberries make sure you cook them before ingesting as the fresh uncooked berries contain small amounts of toxic substances that are destroyed by cooking. 
Optional Add-ins:
Protein powder for a quick breakfast smoothie,  add at least 20 grams of protein. 
1 Banana for flavor and extra potassium
Matcha Powder to add even more antioxidants.  
Coconut instead of almond milk
Liquid monk fruit or liquid stevia for sweetness instead of the honey.  use 2ml.
