Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spreading the word, creating a comfort, lifestyle brand for breast cancer patients and sharing my breast cancer journey.


Dr. Funk’s Antioxidant Smoothie

Dr. Funk’s Antioxidant Smoothie

I was very fortunate to find my Breast Cancer Surgeon, Dr. Kristi Funk from Pink Lotus Breast Center.  She is an incredible doctor, who really cares about women, their breast health, and how their breasts look and feel after surgery.  She performed my Lumpectomy in 2011, and my Double Mastectomy in 2016.  Words cannot express my gratitude for her and her team.  Recently, she released her book, “Breasts The Owner’s Manual.”  Dr. Funk gives women information on all angles from food intake, to genetics, to treatments and choices.  Here is her recipe for a delicious cancer fighting smoothie.  Please check out her website at PinkLotus.com for information, her book, and other helpful products.

Dr. Funk’s Antioxidant Smoothie

Use a blender and add the following ingredients.

1 1/2 cups Organic Soy Milk or Almond Milk

1 tsp Amla (powdered Indian gooseberries)*

1/4 tsp ground Turmeric or 1/4 inch fresh turmeric root

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1 TBS Organic Flaxseeds

1/4 C inner fillet aloe vera gel (gel, not juice or aloe water, and only inner fillet)*

2oz brewed green tea or 1 tsp Matcha Green Tea Powder (or cut green tea bag open and empty contents)

1 dried organic date

1 tsp ground Ceylon Cinnamon

1 custom Pink Lotus Green Pod or 2 packed cups of dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, collard greens(for a berry taste use pods;  for a green taste, use leaves)*

2 cups organic berries (raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries, blueberries and or strawberries. (Use frozen to make it frostier.) You can also substitute with 1 cup other fruits such as apples or oranges, mango, pear or peach.

1 small banana (I freeze mine)

***I added 1 1/2 cups ice

*Amla powder can be found in your local health food store or online

*Aloe Vera leaves can be bought at most markets. Slice off the outer thick skin to leave a clear gel fillet.  The fillet is what you need for this recipe.  Discard the thick skin.

*Pink Lotus Green Pods can be purchased at PinkLotus.com
