This smoothie packs in three Pink Ribbon Produce partners in one glass—juicy clementines from DNE World Fruit, tasty avocados from Avocados From Mexico, and tender and sweet baby spinach from Dole Salads. If you missed last week’s kick-off post on my partnership with Pink Ribbon Produce, let me give you a quick overview of their mission.

During the month of October, when all of our minds are focused on Breast Cancer Awareness, Pink Ribbon Produce helps inform folks what eating a healthy diet can do to help prevent cancer, all while raising money for their research parter—the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Pink Ribbon Produce partners with fruit and vegetable growers along with major supermarket chains to team up to help fight breast cancer through nutritional education and fundraising for cure research. Educating the public on the importance of a healthy diet and raising cash to help fight breast cancer? That’s a win-win in my book.

If you think you are helpless when it comes to lowering your cancer risk, you’ll be happy to know that you have some power in this fight! The American Cancer Society says that, besides quitting smoking, eating a healthy diet rich in plant-based foods is one of the most important things we can do to help prevent cancer.

The ACS recommends getting at least 2 1/2 cups of fruits and veggies a day, and green smoothies like this one are a wonderful way to pack in a lot of produce in an easy-to-eat, tasty treat. For each one of these smoothies you drink, you are getting in one clementine, a half avocado, a half banana, and a cup of spinach—that right there is four servings of fruits and vegetables! You’ll almost hit that 2 1/2 cup mark just with one drink!

Just make sure to use perfectly ripe avocados (unripe ones tend to get a bit lumpy in the blender, and too ripe ones have that weird, sweet taste that no one likes). You’ll swear that you put a scoop of ice cream in your smoothie it’ll be so velvety smooth. Enjoy!
