A banana shake can be a refreshing way to start the day, a nice afternoon pick me up, or an evening dessert drink to combat that post-dinner sweet tooth. Fruit smoothies are not only delicious and refreshing, but they are also a great way to combat cancer. Many fruits are loaded with antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and phytochemicals, all of which help the body eliminate dangerous cancer-causing cells. Give this oh-so-healthy Banana Berry Fruit Shake a try!
Ready In: 5 minutes
1 scoop VeggieShake powder
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice (preferably freshly squeezed but any orange juice will work)
1 banana peeled and chopped (frozen or unfrozen)
1 cup of berries (frozen or unfrozen). We love blueberries, cranberries, and raspberries!
1 tablespoon flaxseed
1 cup ice (only if not using frozen fruits)
Fill your blender or food processor with a 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt.
Add a 1/2 cup of orange juice.
Add 1 serving of VeggieShake powder.
Add 1 chopped banana.
Add 1 cup of berries.
Add 1 tablespoon of flaxseed.
Add 1 cup of ice for a colder, thicker smoothie if you aren't using frozen fruits.
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Blending time will vary depending on the food processor you are using.
If the smoothie is too thick for your taste, you can add some additional orange juice or water and re-blend for a smoother, more liquid texture.
