Valentine’s Day gives rise the urge to eat sugary treats. Unfortunately, processed sugar causes inflammation, which is not good for those dealing with cancer.
Here’s a satisfying way around the sugar shackles that I enjoy. It’s naturally sweet, creamy, quick, easy, nutritious, and even color-coordinated.
And best of all, it can help fight cancer.
All it takes is a high-speed blender with a pusher, some frozen red berries, and a banana.
I consider my high-speed blender a vital part of my anti-cancer lifestyle. I use mine daily for green smoothies, and sometimes I’ll use it three times in one day. I am fortunate that my brother Walter gave me a Vitamix after my diagnosis. I believe using it provides my body with access to fresh, vital nutrients I might not get any other way.
Red berries are nutritional powerhouses. They boost the immune system and provide cell-protecting antioxidants. Raspberries and strawberries contain especially high amounts of ellagic acid, a phytochemical that interferes with cancer development. 
Bananas contain vitamin B6 (good for dealing with neuropathy), fiber, potassium (especially important during chemo, I found), magnesium, vitamin C, and manganese.
Cut your peeled banana in half and stick both halves in the bottom of your blender.
Measure out 2 cups of frozen berries and pour them on top.
Turn on your blender and use your pusher to get the fruit to mix.
Viola! A delicious, sweet, creamy, frozen dessert for Valentine’s Day.
