Powerful Woman, Calcium-Filled Smoothie
- Category: Smoothie
Here is a smoothie recipe designed to prevent disease, and build optimal health. It’s packed with calcium, omega-3 fatty acids and powerful woman sulfur-containing amino acids (the building blocks of protein).
Dr. Joanna Budwig, who pioneered studies on fats and oils in the early 1950′s, found that combining flax seed with sulfur-containing protein prevented or helped heal cancer. When sulfur-containing protein and omega-3 oils are taken together there is increased oxygen uptake in tissues. In order to prevent or reverse cancer, we need to increase tissue oxygenation.
In this power-packed smoothie. The omega-3 comes from flax and chia seed. Almonds, tahini, and kale are all high in calcium and sulfur-containing amino acids.

How much calcium in this smoothie?
Hi Penny, this smoothie is packed with 549mg of calcium which is roughly 42% of your daily intake.
Does anyone know how much calcium this provides any other nutritional value?
Hi Kimberly, I just updated the recipe to show the nutrition data! This has 549mg of calcium which is roughly 42% of your daily intake. If you sub in sunflower seed butter the calcium is pretty much the same.
How of the maple syrup? It doesn’t say!
Updated :), it’s one tablespoon (or less)
How much of the calcium is coming from the oat milk? Curious as some are fortified and some are not. Thanks
Hey Stephanie! the nutritional profile doesn’t include any calcium coming from the oat milk. If you use calcium-fortified plant milk the content will be higher, which is awesome!
