Drink Recipes for Skin Cancer Prevention

Are you looking for drink recipes for skin cancer prevention? Look no further! The following smoothie recipes and other healthy drink recipes call for ingredients like green tea, blueberries, and mango which are known to contain anti-cancer nutrients.

Scandinavian Blueberry Soup

In Scandinavia, blueberry soup is a popular treat that can be served warm as an appetizer or chilled as a dessert. But the benefits of blueberry soup extend far beyond its culinary use. In a laboratory test conducted by USDA researchers, wild blueberries were ranked number one in terms of antioxidant capacity over 40 other tested fruits, berries, and vegetables. The antioxidant activity of wild blueberries was shown to be even stronger than that of cranberries, raspberries, strawberries, plums, or cultivated blueberries.

Catechin-Rich Ice Tea

Catechins found in green tea have been shown to possess strong antioxidant and anti-cancer and properties. This skin-protecting drink recipe calls for loose tea leaves (instead of bagged tea) and a relatively long brewing time, both of which improve the release of catechins from green tea leaves. Lemon juice, rich in vitamin C, further improves the availability of catechins.
