Strawberry bell

Strawberry-Bell Smoothie

Here’s a great smoothie that boost your metabolism while at the same time supporting your immune system due to the rich sources of Vitamin C found in the micronutrients of red bell pepper.  The smoothie still has a great taste to it due to the agave, apple juice and lemon.  As you review the ingredients you may also begin wondering about the pinch of

cayenne.  Cayenne contains capsaicin which, in addition to a number of benefits, can also relieve pain.

Important Note – Phytotherapi’s weight loss or diabetes protocols use a specific Nutritional Guide.  If you’re currently undergoing those protocols, wait until after you’re done with the program before eating this smoothie.

  • 1 pinch, cayenne
  • 2 cups, frozen strawberries
