Michigan Cherry Soy Shake Recipe

Michigan is the #1 producer of tart red cherries in the world. Look in your grocery store's refrigerated section for red tart cherry juice concentrate, a new product I have seen in several local stores. Almost all plant foods have been found to contain phytochemicals that demonstrate anti-cancer activity, and red tart cherries are no exception. I have modified one of my shake recipes to use this new product to have a new taste and include some different anti-cancer molecules in my daily routine.

  • 6 - 8 baby carrots
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened fruit
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp. tart cherry juice concentrate (start with 2 Tbsp. and increase to 3 per your taste preference)
  • 2-1/2 oz. soft tofu (cut a 1# block into 6 pieces)
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup low-fat plain or vanilla yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp each wheat or oat bran, wheat germ, and flaxseed
Blend in your blender until smooth. Enjoy!
