Toxic Freedom Masterclass


This Red Cabbage Acai Cancer Fighting smoothie is a personal favorite of Blender Babes AND all of our friends.

Like the popular cabbage patch kid from the 80s, this smoothie is MADE for kids!

It’s a perfect (and TASTELESS) way to sneak in a really powerful ingredient that many children AND adults DO NOT eat enough of – cabbage!

Cabbage is the 3rd BEST FOOD for helping to prevent cancer.  Dr. Weil thinks there’s no limit to how much we can eat cabbage.

free superfood smoothie challenge

This cancer fighting, super nutritious smoothie is perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or as a pre and post workout smoothie, and made easily in a high powered blender.

The slightly bitter flavor of purple/red cabbage is masked perfectly by antioxidant rich acai juice (we LOVE the Sambazon brand) & banana.

We used strawberries (stems on!) in our recipe, but feel free to replace with any berry in the fridge or freezer.

Same goes for yogurt.  We love blueberry yogurt with it, but strawberry and mixed berry are just as good.

For a dairy free smoothie, try soy or coconut yogurt or for a high protein boost, use a milk substitute such as almond milk or coconut milk with a scoop of plant based protein powder.

Cabbage is a member of the cruciferous family, which is also populated by broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, and other vegetables whose leaves grow at right angles to each other, forming a cross (crucifer).

It is one of the oldest cultivated vegetables, enjoyed by the ancient Romans both as food and as a medicine to treat wounds, colic, and to prevent plague.

There are more than 400 varieties, which although differ somewhat in nutritional value, they all provide healthy levels of vitamin C and various phytonutrients, including flavonoids, indoles, and sulforaphone.

The indoles in cabbage may help prevent breast cancer, and sulforaphane and incolde-3-carbinol have been shown to help the liver rid itself of toxins and to prevent cancer.

Acai has more antioxidants than any other fruit and it is one of the only berries that has naturally occuring Omega fatty acids in high doses. Acai direct from the Amazon has numerous health benefits, especially when it is included in your normal routine.

Acai berries can be used to make health drinks and energy drinks which are the most enjoyable way to consume the berries.

You can also mix pure acai juice puree or concentrate with any of your favorite berry juice for a treat that is equally enjoyable.

Not only does it improve your mental clarity, but similar to the energy you receive from caffeine; mixing guarana with acai fruit gives you energy.

Many conditions are being treated and helped by using acai berries. This super food contains high levels of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals and prevent premature aging and also acai berries provide high levels of nutritional benefits.

In addition to lowering cholesterol levels Acai berry juice also helps fight heart and vascular diseases because of the antioxidants found in it.

Acai fruit helps improve sexual function, digestion and can cleanse and detoxify your body in addition to fighting diseases.

    Didn’t have the Acai Juice so used Acai Powder in Coconut Water. Really Good. But lots of left over cabbage.

      You can make your favorite smoothie on Tuesday’s rest day, and use up more of that cabbage! You can also try adding a handful to any smoothie for extra punch. 🙂 Or try making 1 jar of raw sauerkraut! HAPPY BLENDING!

      Try adding more liquid and/or running it longer Amanda. I’ve made it the way you’re describing and it just needed a little help – it should be super smooth. 🙂

    I typically don’t like to have added sugar like in the yogurt but this smoothie was not super sweet so I think it gave it what it needed. My 3.5 y.o. Loved it! I used a sambazon smoothie pack and black cherry yogurt as modifications

    This is not my favorite, but not the worst smoothie I have ever had either. I really liked the Acai flavor, and thought it worked well and covered up the real cabbagy flavor. However, I don’t think I put it in the blender for long enough. The texture was a bit off for me.

      We once made this recipe with too much cabbage and had the same result. In this case, less is more! 🙂 Just a little bit goes a long way and the red cabbage is a better cancer fighter than green. 🙂 xoxo

    I used blueberry Greek yogurt and added a small handful each of spinach and kale just because I love greens!
