Vanilla-Cinnamon Anti-Cancer Budwig Smoothie
2/3 cup organic 1-2% cottage cheese
6 Tbsp flaxseed oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 ice cubes
1/2 cup unsweetened organic almond milk (check for no carrageenan)
7-10 drops liquid stevia (or to taste)
Note: You can half the cottage cheese/ flaxseed oil portion of the recipe to cut calories, but it will reduce the cancer-fighting effects of the smoothie.
Mix the Budwig mixture FIRST using the directions here: Use 2/3 cup organic 1-2% cottage cheese or quark and combine with 6 Tbsp organic flaxseed oil with an IMMERSION (STICK) BLENDER. Blend until completely smooth and no presence of oil (can take 1-2 minutes.) This step is especially important if you have cancer. Mixing these two ingredients separate from other ingredients allows them to chemically combine and makes the flaxseed oil water soluble and absorbable by all cells- cancerous and healthy.
Let that sit for 5 minutes and during that time add the almond milk, ice, vanilla, cinnamon, and stevia to a Vitamix or counter top blender and blend until frothy. You may want to add the ice cubes gradually to prevent the mixture from stalling and getting too icy.
After the almond milk, ice, vanilla, cinnamon, and stevia are completely blended, scoop the cottage cheese/ flaxseed oil mixture to the blender and blend together on the lowest settings. Some proponents of the Budwig protocol recommend mixing by hand, but as long as you blend on low and only for a few seconds, the integrity of the chemical reaction should not be affected.
Drink within 15 minutes to avoid oxidation of the flaxseed/oil mixture and to benefit from Dr. Budwig's research. Tip: I like to sip mine from a straw.
