Cherry Berry Lime Smoothie from the Healing Smoothies book

I got to check out a copy of the Healing Smoothies book recently and I was blown away by the combination of scientific research, beautiful photos, and great recipes, all with the theme of cancer prevention and recovery.

The author, Daniella Chace, has written a companion book as well, called Turning Off Breast Cancer: A Personalized Approach to Nutrition and Detoxification in Prevention and Healing Both of these books have a “plant-strong” point of view and are very well-researched and written, in my opinion.

The Cherry Berry Lime smoothie caught my eye and Daniella’s publisher was kind enough to allow me to share the recipe with you today.

This recipe calls for “frozen green tea cubes” which I had never thought about making, but is genius. The idea is essentially to make green tea and then freeze into ice cubes. I used some organic jasmine green tea I had in my pantry, brewed for several minutes and then chilled in a glass container.

I then froze the tea into cubes, errr, flower shapes, in my handy-dandy silicone tray:

Here’s what my green tea ice cubes look like after they’ve been frozen overnight:

You only need a few cubes for this recipe, so the rest got stored in my freezer for future use:

I had all the other ingredients  on hand as well, including the tart cherry juice. This is a fantastic recipe! Here’s the printable version of this recipe:
