Self Health 15 Minute Smoothie

During my keynote speech to the American Cancer Society’s Young Professionals group in Hollywood, I shared one of my favorite recipes – not just to stay healthy, but also to decrease my risk of cancer with a simple and quick daily regimen. The recipe for this fantastic smoothie, which comes from our good friend Michael Zenn, author of The Self Health Revolution, is shared below:

Put all the following ingredients in a blender on high for one minute. Pour into a large glass and drink to your Self Health. If traveling to the office or work, be sure to get a large portable cup and sip on this delicious smoothie throughout the morning. Remember, if there is an ingredient that you do not like, simply replace it with something you like better. Drink this smoothie before eating anything else.

  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1⁄2 cup raspberries
  • 1⁄2 cup blackberries (if raspberries and blackberries are not available, substitute blueberries and strawberries. Frozen is okay too, especially wild harvested. Use Frozen if you like your smoothie more frosty)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 powder pack of Nature’s Way Primadophilus Intensive Probiotic (or crack one capsule and drop in powder)
  • 2 tablespoons Nordic Naturals or Carlson’s omega-3 fish oil
  • 1-2 scoops Vibrant Health Green Vibrance powder
  • 1⁄4 cup whole leaf Lily of the Desert aloe vera gel (Inner Fillet Only)
  • 11⁄2 cups not-from-concentrate orange or apple juice
  • 2 ounces green tea (You can use left over tea leaves from pot)
  • 1-2 Teaspoons of raw dark honey to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons of Genesis Fusion 4 (Goji, Acai, Noni, Mangosteen)
  • 2 Tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 20 drops of organic clove oil (HerbPharm or Gaia Herbs)

Thanks for letting us share this great recipe, Michael.
