Going through chemotherapy treatment for cancer is probably one of the most harsh experiences the human body can go through. This is one of my healing recipes that I developed to support me during this difficult process.
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
Another common side effect during chemotherapy is diarrhea, which can lead to potassium loss, making this banana smoothie a good choice! If you are already experiencing diarrhea during your treatments, you may want to omit the dates because dried fruits can worsen symptoms.
Whether or not you are undergoing chemotherapy, Heather’s Banana Smoothie is a nice way to help you to stay hydrated, replenish potassium stores and soothe GI distress.
