While October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, conversations raised during those 31 days are not forgotten the rest of the year. From understanding the importance of screening to knowing your risk factors, knowledge is one step to creating a stronger community to combat this health issue. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) has long been a leader in education and advocacy. From its community support to the Shop Pink initiative with collaborative brands, every piece of research can lead to another way to fight this disease. With the help of nutribullet and the BCRF team, blending up a colorful and healthy recipe is easy.

As one of the Shop Pink brands, nutribullet proudly supports BCRF.

Even if there might be another blender in the kitchen, making this purchase is one that gives back many times over.

For some people fighting cancer, a waning appetite is a hard battle. Although good nutrition is vital to be strong, it can be cumbersome to enjoy and eat the best nutritional choices. But, when a recipe is simple and appealing, it can be easier to overcome that lack of appetite.

In this smoothie recipe from BCRF and nutribullet, the beverage is packed with good nutritional choices. From the turmeric to help combat inflammation to the coconut water for hydration, it is bursting with thoughtful choices.

More importantly, the flavor is well balanced. From the sweetness of the mango to the brightness of the orange, it is approachable and inviting. For anyone looking to get a little extra fruit and vegetable count for the day, this recipe is an easy choice.
