Hello all! I hope everyone is having a good week. I’m doing pretty good but fighting a bad infection and took this as an opportunity to share a favorite healing smoothie with you that helps people who are taking antibiotics or those that just need to heal.
I found this smoothie from a doctor who actually battled autoimmune disease herself at one point. She was able to heal herself and became healthy again. This is one of her favorite smoothies, but I change it up just a bit and add in some probiotics for added health. I chose to have this one this morning because I’m currently taking antibiotics and want to help replenish my good bacteria. Even if you aren’t taking antibiotics, many people are deficient when it comes to good bacteria. Eating yogurt and fermented foods can help.
Here’s what I used…
2 frozen bananas
1 cup other frozen fruits
3/4 cup – 1 cup kefir
1 huge container of spinach or kale or close to a pound
1 handful of flax seeds
Water to add
Here’s what I did…
Add everything to the blender starting with the frozen banana, kefir, greens, more frozen fruit and then the flax seed. Add water to just below the greens. Blend on low and then up to high for about a minute until everything is smooth.
Sprinkle with chia seeds if preferred.
This is one of my favorite smoothies for healing, although it’s not one that I love to drink. It’s not super sweet and sweet is what I prefer, but this is great for health and not everything that’s healthy is going to taste awesome all the time. I’m not a ‘greens’ lover, but spinach is mild and I can handle it because it doesn’t have a huge grassy flavor.
Think Health! 🙂
