If your family gobbled up those yummy vegan carob breakfast muffins we featured from health-conscious tuned in parent Monica M.; or there just isn’t enough time to prepare breakfast; or you simply want an easy, natural way to balance out your body’s pH levels and get a health-smart boost; this superfood smoothie is a delicious and nutritious way to start your day.

In a blender, add two handfuls of organic spinach. Spinach is a superfood that is loaded with vitamin C and unique anti-cancer carotenoids called epoxyxanthophylls (and offers a plethora of other health benefits). Spinach should be a daily part of a healthy family’s diet, no doubt.

Add one to two bananas, according to your liking. Bananas are not only filling and smoothie-licous, but they’re packed with vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and then some!

Add 16 ounces of Real Coconut Water, or alkaline coconut water. This hydrates and balances out the pH levels in the body. According to the Budwig Center (alternative cancer research center), cancer cells thrive in acidic environments; and alkaline-rich water and foods help restore balance and maintain healthy pH levels.
