Heal and Recover Smoothie

Heal and Recover Smoothie

The perfect blend of immune boosting and anti-inflammatory properties. Whether you’re pre- or post-op our smoothie will speed up recovery time and fire up your gut health.  Your gut (microbiome) is your control center to your overall health and well-being.  This smoothie was created for a very special patient.  She said, “It’s so good! I feel so much better and alive on the inside.”

Bananas promote healthy digestion.  Their fiber content encourages the digestive system to get back to business as usual.  Avocados contain a generous amount of potassium (more than bananas). Potassium plays a big role in keeping your blood pressure within normal range.  Vitamin C in oranges helps your immune system stay on task to heal wounds and prevent infections.  Balancing out this healthful smoothie with heart healthy fats and protein are the chia seeds.

Cheers to a refreshing wholesome glass of healing and recovering!
