There’s nothing faster than a morning smoothie and, with the right ingredients, it can be a cancer-fighter, too. Just pop frozen blueberries into your blender with a ripe banana and a cup of almond milk or soymilk. Blend it slowly at first, and then turn it up as the ingredients start to blend. It’s delicious, and great for you!
The rich color of blueberries comes from anthocyanins, natural antioxidants that neutralize free radicals. Blueberries also help prevent urinary tract infections, just as their cousins, cranberries, do.
For variety, try adding mango or kale to your smoothie. These foods have cancer-fighters of their own.
