Energizing Strawberry Smoothie with Ginseng

We all get run down and have times when our energy is so low, even going to the mailbox is a big effort.  Sometimes energy problems are from being anemic and sometimes it has to do with a more serious disease like cancer. Cancer-related fatigue affects from 60-90% of patients and many cannot even eat balanced meals due to lack of appetite or simply from the treatments they are taking.

Did you know all the supplements in the world will not fix a bad diet?  Researchers state that there is nothing worse for an alternative cancer treatment then to have a bad diet.  The cancer diet is just as important as the treatment itself.  So whether you are low on energy due to lack of sleep or have cancer-related fatigue, this simple smoothie will energize you and give you lots of vitamins to help make your body strong.

  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek Style Yogurt (raw goat yogurt is great)
  • 2 frozen bananas (cut into chunks)
  • 3/4 cup of strawberries (sliced and frozen)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginseng powder


Place all the above in a heavy duty blender and blend on high.  For added power and energy, add in 1 tablespoon of freshly ground flax seeds or cold pressed whey powder.  Do not use whey isolate you find in the grocery store.  Dr. Mercola sells a wonderful cold pressed whey.
