Do you need a boost? Are you looking to add a little zing into your morning routine or after an intense workout? If you answered yes, then here’s a smoothie recipe that is sure going to spice things up, perk up your taste buds, and trump inflammation.
Experts agree that inflammation is responsible for many aches and pains and chronic degenerative diseases so it makes sense that you would want to tame that inflammation down. Whatever your reason for wanting to do so, it’s essential to get it down to a healthy level.
With just a few ingredients blended together in this recipe, you’re on your way to cool inflammation from the body, and the best part of it all is drinking this fruity, chocolaty, and slightly spicy goodness at the end. But, here are a few pointers before you do.
For good measure, and you’ll hear this a lot with Quantum Techniques (QT), is that it’s always best to muscle-test or have a QT practitioner check how well you fare on the ingredients before you set out and get them ready.
Whether you’re healthy as a bee, have just a minor ache or pain or recovering from a chronic illness, you want to make sure the ingredients in any recipe, including this one, do not test as energy toxins (kind of like food allergies or food sensitivities) for you or that you have dietary intolerances to.
So without further delay, here’s a closer look at the three star ingredients that work synergistically together to make up this anti-inflammation recipe.
Turmeric. With this cancer-fighting, antioxidant-rich, and inflammation fighter, a few slices of turmeric go a long way. Now if you think that adding more will bring the inflammation down quicker, it won’t. Since the body processes whole foods differently than synthetic nutrition, the body absorbs more so you need less. Besides, you don’t want this pungent and aromatic spice to overpower the fruity taste and turn this smoothie into something altogether that is hard to swallow and more or less hard on the nose. Less is more.
Cacao. I know it’s hard to believe the controversial hype surrounding chocolates, but when you consume them in their raw and unprocessed form, not the ones that are highly processed and packed with refined sugars, the cacao beans where chocolates are derived are considered a superfood loaded with anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals, and fiber. So never mind what the label says on any other form of chocolates, the bottom line is you want the real deal. (Nothing wrong with sinking your teeth into chocolates you love if you test well on them – just saying). Oh, and by the way, cacao is also anti-inflammatory. Just so you know.
Banana. Last and certainly not least. They are yellow so you can’t miss them at the stores, but they’re so abundant and readily available that sometimes it’s easy to forget how magnificent bananas are. As you already know, bananas are loaded with potassium that the body needs for so many functions and they’re packed with enzymes that are excellent for digestive health. But, did you know that, according to FOOD MATTERS, this fruit can “reduce swelling” and “make you smarter”? I didn’t know that either until now. I might just have to banana up on this one. I mean, check the maximum amount I can have for beneficial effects using muscle-testing.
Together, the turmeric, cacao, and banana help to reduce and control inflammation. However, that’s not all. If you’ve been a client of QT, you know that we like to take things up a few notches.
So I am going to ask you: “Would you like an energetic boost or two with your smoothie?” It’s optional, but if you say yes, then you’ll find two codes below you can add that’ll energetically charge your smoothie and kick that inflammation to the curb and raise the frequency of your drink.
Some stores will even charge you for a boost and for each additional one, but here, in celebration of you taking charge of your health and the advent of summer, the boost codes are on the house. Try this recipe and let me know what you think.
Prep time: 5 minutes or less
Blend time: 25-60 seconds with a high-powered blender

Notes: While this is a standard universal recipe, in QT, it is suggested that you muscle-test the amount of turmeric your body needs. Adjust the ingredients if necessary to fit your body’s constitution and for your desired consistency.
Substitution: If you don’t test well on cacao, you may want to use carob powder. Some people tolerate this alternative better. And, it does taste a lot like chocolate.
