April Community Smoothie
This brilliant yellow community smoothie packs a nutritional punch with the inspiration of daffodils for the Canadian Cancer Society!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this smoothie:
• 4oz of our cold-pressed organic SHINE juice
• 4oz coconut milk
• 1 banana
• 1 cup frozen peaches
~ Blitz it up et voila! Sunshine in a glass.
This brightly coloured, nutritional powerhouse smoothie is the perfect way to ring in the new spring season! This smoothie is rich in immune boosting vitamin C and A, perfect for fending off those springtime sniffles. Turmeric provides powerful antioxidant properties which help to scavenge for free radicals - compounds that your body acquires through exposure to pollutants, food and the environment - to reduce the effects of aging and deter chronic diseases. Antioxidants also help ward off cancer and reduce body inflammation. Nothing says summer is coming more than peaches! Not only are peaches an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, they also provide ample fibre (along with banana) contributing to gut health and keeping us full longer in order to fend off cravings. Full of heart healthy fats, coconut milk gives this smoothie its creamy texture and indisputably spring-like flavour!
Our April community smoothie was in partnership with the Ottawa chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society. For information about their programs and services, click here.
