You’re probably familiar with the popular immune-supporting herb, black elderberry. Our USDA Certified Organic Black Elderberry Syrup is one of our best sellers, and for good reason: it’s delicious! So delicious that we partnered with Gisele Bündchen and Erewhon Market, a Los Angeles Certified Organic Retailer and fellow Certified B Corp, to bring you the exclusive Giselderberry Boost Smoothie.

Made with our organic Black Elderberry Syrup, creamy coconut milk, acai, dates, and enhanced with lucuma and plant protein for added benefits, it’s a delicious way to support immune health this winter. 

Given its potential to strengthen the body’s immune system and promote overall wellness, Black Elderberry is a great staple to keep in your natural health pantry. They are high in flavonoids called anthocyanins, which give the berries (and this tasty smoothie!) their bluish-purple color.

        The Giselderberry Boost Smoothie was created to support our mission of connecting people, plants, and planet. Both Erewhon and Gisele’s philosophies on wellness, farming, and regenerative agriculture align with the true spirit of Gaia Herbs. In fact, a portion of the smoothie proceeds will go to Rodale Institute, a global nonprofit dedicated to growing the regenerative organic agriculture movement through rigorous research, farmer training, and education.

        We consider this smoothie recipe an easy way to connect you to the power of herbs while supporting your wellness along the way.
