Add the following ingredients to your high powered blender and blend until desired consistency. One small caveat: if you don’t have a VERY powerful blender, vegetables from the brassica (cabbage, broccoli and kale) family may promote gas. Try to introduce them slowly and if it doesn’t work simply substitute with other fruits or vegetables such as spinach, and avocado:

• ¼ cup of organic almond or coconut milk

• 2 cups of the “Fruit & Vegetable” already prepared o Clean and chop, beets, apples, purple cabbage, broccoli, celery, ginger, kale and garlic (one clove).

You can effectively use whatever vegetables you want but I stress a good variety. Chop enough for about one week’s worth of smoothies (use trial and error for this one). My experience is that chopped vegetables, placed in a sealed container with one or two paper towel sheets at the bottom, can effectively keep relatively fresh for about one week. This will save a ton of time when making your smoothies.

• 1 heaping tablespoon of the Seeds of Life mixture

Using a coffee grinder, grind sesame, chia, and flax seeds. Place them in a small Ziploc bag and store in your freezer. Try to keep it relatively fresh by only staging two weeks worth of the mixture, though the seeds should stay fresh in the freezer for longer than that.

• 25-35 grams of high quality natural whey protein (or a vegan protein powder, such as sprouted brown rice, pea, or hemp)

• ½ cup of organic frozen berries and 1 tablespoon of shredded coconut

• 2 heaping tablespoons of organic yogurt (coconut yogurt can be used if you have dairy intolerance)

• ¼ tsp cinnamon to stabilize blood sugar and ¼ tsp of turmeric powder to load it with cancer fighting compounds

• 1 tsp of maca root powder for an energy kick (find this at any health food store) 1 heaping teaspoon of glutamine for muscle repair (if desired) You can also add a serving of your favorite fish oil 2-3 ice cubes (if desired)
