As I mention in my book, Leave Cancer in the Dust: 50 Tips to Prevent Breast Cancer and Supercharge Your Health, peaches are a powerful weapon in your cancer-fighting arsenal. One study showed a significant decrease in a certain type of breast cancer in women who ate at least two servings of peaches or nectarines per week.

 

This delicious and creamy smoothie is a great way to add peaches into your regular rotation!

 

Ingredients

 

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 frozen banana, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 medium-sized peach or nectarine (Sorry Georgia, Colorado peaches are the BEST!)

1-2 tbsp of flax, chia, or hemp seeds (I love a combo of all three!)

1 tsp coconut oil

1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder

 

Directions

 

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

Vail Diet Tips

 

beginner_green_circle  Make recipe as is. If using non-organic produce, wash well and wipe dry with a paper towel. Read the label of your protein powder carefully – many protein powders on the market are just plain garbage. Avoid ones with chemical artificial sweeteners, other additives, and megadoses of vitamins and minerals. (You should be especially careful about giving these to children.) Garden of Life and Warrior Force are good brands.

 

intermediate_blue_square  Use almond milk that does not contain carrageenan, a potentially dangerous additive that is common in alternative milks, even organic ones. Also use organic peaches or nectarines – both are included on the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list of the produce containing the most pesticide residue.

 

expert_black_diamond  Use homemade almond milk as a base (see recipe here). Also, add a few dashes of turmeric! If you just add a little, you won’t even taste it. Turmeric contains a substance called curcumin – a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cell protectant. It has been shown in several studies to inhibit the growth of several types of cancer cells.
