Dear Cancer Project supporter,

Spirulina is an antioxidant-rich powder made from blue-green algae. It’s highly nutritious and doesn’t change the taste of this delicious fruit smoothie. It does, however, make it a wonderful green color.


Makes 4 servings

1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup fortified vanilla soy- or other non-dairy milk
10 frozen peach slices
1 banana
1/4 cup cherries or raspberries
2 teaspoons maple syrup (optional)
1 tablespoon spirulina
ice, as needed, to chill and thicken

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend at high speed until smooth, stopping the blender occasionally to move the unblended fruit to the center with a spatula.
