Colostrum Smoothie Recipes

Bovine colostrum is often referred to as a superfood. Produced by cows after giving birth, this milky fluid is packed with nutrients, vitamins, and antibodies to support the immune system of calves in their first few days of life. Bovine colostrum has many health benefits for humans.

For example, one of its most noted ingredients, lactoferrin, is an important protein. Lactoferrin has been known to help boost the immune system, build muscle, remove environmental toxins and allergens, and improve gut health. Bovine colostrum for human consumption is made by taking some of the colostrum from cows just hours after giving birth, pasteurizing it, and drying it into a pill or powder formula.

One of the simplest ways to incorporate bovine colostrum into your daily diet is to blend it into a smoothie. Colostrum in powder form can be added to any of your favorite smoothie recipes. To help get you started, here are three delicious colostrum smoothie recipes you will want to try today.

Each recipe below makes one serving. Ladies and gentlemen … start your blenders!
