Healing Banana Split Smoothie

January 9, 2016

I like that this Banana Split Smoothie powers the kids up with protein in the morning and that they drink every last drop. Really, this Banana Split smoothie tastes far more decadent than healing.

A delicious smoothie for cancer recovery and prevention.

Last week I shared with you lovelies three new must-try smoothie ingredients—banana peel being one of them. These and other great ideas were ones I gleaned from Daniella Chace’s little gem of a book Healing Smoothies: 100 Research-Based, Delicious Recipes that Provide Nutrition Support for Cancer Prevention and Recovery.

I have turned to this book countless times for fresh smoothie inspiration and wanted to share a recipe out of the book that we make quite often. I like that this Banana Split Smoothie powers the kids up with protein in the morning and that they drink every last drop. Really, this Banana Split smoothie tastes far more decadent than healing. But healing it can be!

Resveratrol, found in peanuts and peanut butter, has been found to suppress intestinal cancers. The cocoa and vanilla fragrances stimulate the appetite while the peanut butter and vanilla bean flavor hit the palate. The taste is reminiscent of chocolate ice cream. Yum!

Cari,

My favorite plant-based protein powders are:

Reset360 All-in-One Shake ( http://www.saragottfriedmd.com/hormone-shakes ) Chocolate and Vanilla are both good.
Nutiva ( https://store.nutiva.com/plant-protein/ ) Is a bit gritty.
Vega ( https://myvega.com/products/vega-one-nutritional-shake/ )

Hope that helps. 🙂
