Margery’s Smoothies

| December 29, 2015

When the actual thought of the lump I had was possibly cancer, I immediately changed my diet. I knew I had to get more veggies and vitamins in my body as soon as possible and a friend recommended smoothies to start.  I played around with different ingredients but these are smoothies I make most often.

 

smoothie-picTHE STAR INGREDIENTS

Put the following items in a blender, mix it up and enjoy!

Important Note: USE ORGANIC INGREDIENTS WHENEVER POSSIBLE

  • Kale — Use about 75% kale, spinach or Swiss chard.
  • Blueberries — Use a handful (8-10) blueberries.  If you’re not a blueberry fan, use raspberries or strawberries but these are more alkaline than other fruit. Any fruit is will work but limit it to small amounts as there is a lot of sugar in fruit and it will spike your insulin levels.
  • Unsweetened Coconut Milk — Fill your blender 3/4 the way full with liquid.  I make a mixture of half coconut milk and alkaline water (or distilled water).
  • Apple Cider Vinegar — Add 2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar (Braggs).
  • Baking Soda  (1/2 tsp)
  • Organic Coconut Oil  (1 tsp)
  • Apricot Kernels  (8-10 kernels)
  • Protein Powder  (I use Raw Meal by Garden of Life, it’s organic, vegan and gluten dairy and soy free)
  • Almonds — Add 8-10 raw, organic almonds.
  • Chia Seeds  (1 tsp)
  • Flax Seeds  (1 tsp)
  • Sunflower Seeds  (1 tsp)

So many options…

  • Vitamin C — I use Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C which is a liquid and very potent. I also put it in my smoothie after I blend it — just stir it in.
  • Lemon — Cut up and throw in a 1/4 to 1/2 lemon — yep, peeling and all!
  • Plant Derived Minerals  (1 cap full from Youngevity)
  • Calcium Supplement  (1 cap full, also by Youngevity it is called an Ultimate Osteo FX)
  • Ginger — Add 1 teaspoon, I use a precut organic ginger.
  • Ice — Use ice if you would like a cold smoothie, but I freeze my kale and blueberries — so that’s usually cold enough.

I played around with these ingredients a bit, but there are a ton of other things you can add or take away.  Just make it taste good and add or subtract according to what you like.

SIMPLIFY: To make it easier I bought 8 little containers and put all my dry ingredients in there once a week!  This saves a ton of time. I started out with making smoothies twice a day (when I was first diagnosed) but once a day is good too.


The Turmeric Smoothie

This is loaded with yummy fruits and turmeric, which is one of the most powerful cancer fighting spices known to man! And it also tastes delicious!

Ingredients…
1 cup Coconut Milk
1 Peeled, Frozen Banana
1/2 cup Mango
1 tsp Organic Turmeric
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Chia Seeds
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Ice — only if you want it colder, all of the ingredients are frozen and the coconut milk is cold.


 

Margery’s Running Smoothie

I am a runner and need a little extra potassium. I don’t make this smoothie often, but I love to have it once or twice a week.  It’s sweeter than my other smoothies and gives me the feeling of having dessert, plus… its loaded with anti-cancer ingredients!

Ingredients…
1 1/2 cup Organic, Unsweetened Coconut Milk
3/4 cup Berries — I use blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or strawberries… or all!
1 Peeled, Frozen Banana
Ice — Use ice if you would like it colder

TIP:  I will add protein powder, flax seeds and coconut oil if I feel I need a little extra punch.
