Watermelon Acai Smoothie Recipe

This Watermelon Acai Smoothie Recipe helps hydrate the body and boost the immune system.
Watermelon Acai Smoothie Recipe – boosts the immune system to help fight cancer

We recently met Matt and Amanda when they entered our Blendtec + Thrive Market giveaway and told us #WhyIBlend. It turns out Matt was diagnosed with brain cancer not too long ago. To help Matt along during his treatment, his wife Amanda started researching ways to help his body fight. She found numerous ingredients to help boost his immune system and she does this by making him delicious smoothies.

We asked Matt and Amanda to share a few of their favorite smoothies with us. This Watermelon Acai smoothie is one of Amanda’s very favorites.

Cancer Fighting Watermelon Acai Smoothie

As a base she uses watermelon, which has the highest cancer fighting properties of any fruit out there. It also has amazing hydrating properties and tastes great. To the watermelon she adds the antioxidant powerhouse, acai powder, as well as pomegranate powder which studies on prostate cancer have shown may slow the most aggressive forms by 67%.

If you’ve never heard of camu powder, you’re not alone. It a lesser-known superfood that comes from the camu berry. One half teaspoon of the pretty pink powder packs a whopping 600% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C.

Chia seeds are in there for protein and sustainable energy, as well as slowing the absorption of sugars, and antioxidant properties.

Citrus peel contains flavonoids which have been shown to penetrate brain cancer cells, facilitate their death by apoptosis, and lower their potential for invaded neighboring tissues. Citrus juice aids the liver in detoxification of carcinogens.
