My Antioxidant Smoothie

I've been having this running nose since wednesday last week, I had fever last Thursday, and I feel like going down with a flu since Thursday.  It seems that my system is not responding to the muscle relaxant, anti-fever meds, and anti-histamin I've been taking.  It's time to shift to other alternative methods to combat these disease :D  Actually all I am thinking is to boost my immune-system once more with fruits coz it's been almost 3 days that I haven't been ingesting Vitamin C rich fruits. 

Secondly,  I am lazy to cook so I'd rather have some smoothie for lunch today.  And since blueberries, orange, and grapes are cheap these days so I hoarded for a few stocks. There you go, now you have an idea on the contents of my antioxidant smoothie :-)

The ingredients I used are all considered antioxidants or have antioxidant properties. And the combination of the fruits with the honey and soya milk produced a delicious smoothie.  Next time, when I feel better,  I will use ice instead of cold water :-)
