I’m not sure if it makes sense that I have been in the mood for smoothies being so cold outside but oh well!
For day 3 of the Medical Medium Recipe Challenge I enjoyed a smoothie that I have drank liberally in the past few months – especially when I was doing the Liver cleanse! Yep…the popular Liver Rescue Smoothie. Medical Medium provides a few different varieties for how to make this one and I usually stick to the same ingredients – bananas, wild blueberries, pitaya powder (or the actual fruit) and water. Easy eh??
This recipe is from the Liver Rescue Book.
This is another simple, filling recipe that does not spike my blood sugar.
This is another solid 10 out of 10 for taste!
Ingredients used: Frozen wild blueberries, 2 frozen bananas, pink pitaya – I use the powder but you can use the real fruit and enough water to get things moving.
Wild blueberries: A true powerhouse full of antioxidants and healing properties. A powerful prebiotic, amazing brain food and liver restorer.
Bananas: One of the most nutritional and healing fruits readily available today. They are 76 percent water and full of vitamin C, B6, potassium, copper and manganese. They are a great electrolyte food and good for busy people on the run. They are anti viral and anti fungal . They are a great food choice for those suffering from chronic illness. They are a great food for lowering blood pressure. According to the medical medium ” Bananas should be ripe when eaten which means the peel should be lightly speckled and the fruit has a sweet, creamy taste. Unripe bananas can cause constipation and other adverse reactions”
Dragon fruit (pitaya): Can rejuvinate the liver. According to Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium ” “The red pigment in the red-fleshed variety of pitaya is a rejuvenator for your liver, bringing cells back to life.”
The Liver Rescue Smoothie will continue to be a big part of my routine in the months to come!
I am going away from Friday-Monday….I might have limited internet access so posts for those days might have to be put up on Monday 🙂 Stay tuned!
