Good day to you! I have been cleansing for the past 2 weeks, starting out my morning with a fresh smoothie. That’s pretty much my normal routine anyhow, even when I’m not cleansing. It’s a great way to start the day.

Here’s a look at what I made this morning. I’m calling it a Pinana Smoothie.



Pinana Smoothie

You will need:

blender or food processor

measuring cup & spoons



Use all raw, organic ingredients if possible. All fruit can be fresh or frozen. I like some of it to be frozen, because of the coldness and texture. Cut all fruit up small enough so it blends up faster. Personally I “eye” everything. So feel free to fudge the measurements to your liking.

2 bananas

1 cup pineapple

a handful of mulberries

2 tbsp maca powder

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp raw honey (optional.)

1 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 cup of ice

1/4 cup (or more, if you like it more liquefied) of alkaline water

a dash of cinnamon




Combine all ingredients into blender and mix till it has a smooth consistency. Time will vary depending on appliance used. Garnish with cinnamon for extra flavor. Makes 3-4 hearty servings. ENJOY!
