Berry-Banana Smoothie- Beat the Heat


It's that time of year on this side of the globe when we do everything to "beat the heat". Can there be anything better than superfruit strawberry, the storehouse of nutrients?
Health benefits Strawberries (to name a few):
  • Highest level of anti-oxidant content
  • Cancer Prevention
  • Alzheimer's disease prevention
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Can reduce Macular Degeneration
When selecting strawberries, also be sure to choose organically-grown varieties. Conventional strawberries have been found to be among the worst fruits for pesticide contamination and residue.

Ingredients-
7stawberries
1banana
1almonds
honey

Preparation-
  • Soak almonds overnight. Chill the strawberries and banana.
  • Blanche the almonds. Wash and clean strawberries.
  • Run the almonds in a blender, add the strawberries and banana.
  • Drizzle with honey and serve.
