My kids love smoothies.  They’re a great way to pack in lots of nutrients in an easy to digest form.  Smoothies are so versatile.  Basically, all you need are your favorite fruits (berries, mangoes, peaches, use your imagination!), yogurt (if you want extra protein), and a liquid (coconut water, orange juice, almond milk).  If you want a frozen smoothie, it’s best to use frozen fruit.  I freeze sliced ripe bananas in a ziploc bag so I can throw them into a smoothie anytime.  Bananas add creaminess and silkiness to smoothies.  Here’s my basic recipe:

Easy Fruit Smoothie

1 banana, frozen, sliced
1/2 cup fruit (berries, peaches, mango, papaya, pineapple, use your imagination)
2 tablespoons non-fat yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1/4 cup orange juice, coconut water, or almond milk
squeeze of lime juice
a few ice cubes (if no frozen fruit is used)

Blend everything until smooth and slurp through a fat straw.  Yum!

Here are two other great recipes:
  • Gluten-Free Goddess’ Blueberry Smoothie 
  • Dr. Fuhrman’s Blueberry Flax Smoothie, full of cancer fighting antioxidants.  Blueberries have one of the highest levels of antioxidants found in fruits, plus they add natural sweetness.
Anticancer Ingredients:  Banana, berries, peaches, mango, papaya, pineapple, orange, lime
