Mango-Cilantro Anti-Candida Smoothie


It is New Year's Eve and I am eating and drinking delicately today after having "overdone" the sugar and fats during the holiday proper. If you are looking for a divinely satisfying smoothie that is also very soothing and healthy, then you can not go wrong with this Mango-Cilantro green smoothie.

This smoothie has only four ingredients (feel free to add and subtract as you see fit, of course).  I don't think it is necessary to dictate actual proportions, but for the two of us to have a large glassful each (10-12 oz) I used about:
  1. a handful of frozen fruit and 
  2. about 16 oz. of water. 
  3. My husband added in Astragulas to his-- I am a little more sensitive to the added 'flavours' that some of the power herbs bring to the smoothie, even though I know that astragulas probably makes up for its astringent details with vast health benefits.  Make this smoothie fit for you!

  • Mango is a 'digestive' tropical fruit that contains antioxidants that are said to prevent several forms of cancer; it is alkalanyzing AND has the right amount of fibre, Vitamin C and pectin to lower Low-density Lipoprotein (the 'bad' cholesterol).  Along with pineapple and pectin, mango is considered a candida-fighting fruit.  And maybe you thought Mango was just one of those delicious tropical 'frill fruits' with nothing much to offer but yummy taste and texture? I used Moov frozen organic chunks that our son picked up at Costco-- you can see Mango's excellent nutrition profile right here:

  • Cilantro is sometimes called "Chinese Parsley".  It is used a lot in Mexican dishes.  For me it imparts a delectable fresh lemony flavour, but some folks (with maybe "a genetic response") can find its smell and taste to be quite repulsive.  I feel blessed to love the taste, because Cilantro is a natural chelator, grabbing on to certain heavy metals (like the residuals of mercury fillings, etc) and getting them out of your body.  If you can't stand cilantro, then use another green like regular parsley or celery.  (I use a large handful of organic cilantro greens in my smoothie).
  • Tumeric -- the trendy root from the East.  Shake in about a teaspoon full or more.  You might detect a bit of an earthy flavour, but otherwise it is pretty neutral tasting and full of benefits: there are lots of indicators that it is useful to stopping the spread of cancer; it's an anti-inflammatory; and a pile of other wonderful assets.  Read more about it here

Ginger Peach Anti-Candida Green Smoothie

There are all varieties of Green Smoothies out there from the dairy-rich ones that contain actual additional refined sweeteners along with fruit and greens to smoothies that are basically whirled up fresh greens, a banana, and water to recipes that are heavy on commercial "smoothie mixes"... and everything in between. I love 'em all but my body now seems most amenable to a larger proportion of fresh greens and a tablespoon of ground (or gel) chia seed along with a lower glycemic fruit (or berries)and some additional fresh ground spices or veggies like ginger or garlic.

These fresher tasting Green Smoothies are less apt to feed any nefarious fungus or  incorrigible candida overgrowth than the sweeter-type smoothies.  I hope you will want to follow along and try these high-fibre, nutrient-dense, low glycemic smoothies for yourself!  You will find the recommendation for these smoothies and other invaluable tips in the free 5-part Minicourse you can sign up for below the recipe.


Add the following to your blender carafe:

1-2 large handsful of Baby Spinach leaves
3 Celery stems (cut into 2 inch pieces to avoid stringing the gears)

1 baby finger-size nob of fresh Ginger, grated
1 T. Ground Chia Seed (or equal portion of Chia Gel)
Optional: 1 teaspoon of Acerola Cherry Juice Powder
Optional: pinch of Stevia to sweeten if desired
About 4- 8 oz. cups of filtered water
Spin up until creamy.  Let sit for 15 minutes if Chia meal has not had a chance to soak, stir, and pour into glasses to drink.
