Are you suffering from a health issue or disease and want to improve your health right away but don’t know where to begin? Feeling overwhelmed with all the information and recipes out there?

This recipe (and recipes that are from the new Gracious Living Lifestyle RAW HEALING Video Recipe Books) are dedicated to YOU!
Our world has accelerated so fast on so many different frontiers, that stress and disease have increased. The great news is that the body is miraculously strong and resilient and wants to function at its best. Your body wants to function at its best! That’s what it was designed to do. Nutrition and lifestyle choices have a profound impact on how fast the body can turn itself around from poor health to awesome health. Preventing disease and reversing disease is always a possibility. Now is the time to take our health and our power back so we can live a quality life with ease, positivity, and happiness. When we feel good and look good, our perception and attitude on life is experienced in a more positive, loving light. Let’s work with our bodies, not against them.
Make sure to stay hydrated! Drink 1 whole glass of water before preparing this smoothie.
Healing Citrus Sunshine Sunwarrior Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 whole lemon without the skin (yes, the whole lemon!)
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
- ½ cup of fresh chopped cilantro (don’t knock it until you try it!)
- ½ avocado
- 1 serving Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Vanilla Protein Powder
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup ice
- Add 1 cup berries of choice
Blend until divinely smooth and creamy. As you are blending, take five deep breaths, place your hand on your heart and repeat your affirmation. Deep breathing is the fastest way to alkalize the body and calm the mind. Smile, and tell yourself you love yourself. Keep practicing this every day until you believe it.
Gracious Living Smoothie Tip #1:
Use frozen bananas for creamier smoothies. Wait till the bananas are ripe, peel the skin off, break the bananas into pieces, and store in a Ziplock bag or glass container in the freezer for your smoothie use. You can also freeze apples (core and cut into chunks), pineapples, papayas, kiwis, oranges, peaches, grapes, watermelon, mangos, pears, etc. Cut everything yourself and then freeze them in portion sizes.
You can freeze your kale, spinach, and other dark green leafy vegetables. You can even freeze your herbs. Cilantro, basil, mint, and rosemary are my Gracious Living faves in smoothies (although you don’t need to freeze rosemary). Just peel them from the stem and store in a Ziplock bag. Use as needed.
You can freeze your lemons and limes. Peel them, cut into halves or quarters (depending on your blender’s ability to blend up big or small chunks), and put in your Ziplock bag. With organic lemons or limes only (otherwise there are chemicals all over the outside peel), I like to grate the lemon zest into my smoothies for an extra lemon taste that promotes healing. Believe it or not, there is extra nutrition in the peel!
You can even freeze your avocados! No need to waste avocados anymore that have gone from unripe to too ripe. Once soft and ready to eat, cut the avocado in half, take out the pit, spoon avocado out into individualized Ziplock bags, or in a container, and store in the freezer, Use as needed.
After the avocado is cut in half and pitted, use a spoon and go along the whole edge of the avocado to get the green meat out in a clean sweep, without a speck of avocado left behind.
