Here are the Health Benefits of my Red Smoothie ingredients:
*Great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and dietary fiber.
*Rich in vitamin C, manganese, folate, vitamin B6, betaine and potassium.
*The greens parts of beets are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, copper and calcium.
Therefore, just the beets alone are loaded with healthy nutrients. However, what I enjoy the most, is the blood cleaning power and the blood flow.
What is this? Beet juice increases blood flow to the brain and help prevent dementia, according to Wake Forest University researchers. The body converts nitrates in beets to nitric oxide, a compound that relaxes arteries and improves blood circulation and oxygenation within the brain.
*High source of antioxidants (especially Beta Carotene).
*Decreases risk for heart disease and stroke.
*Helps protect against cancer .
*Important for maintaining oral health.

1/4 cup shredded coconut
Add all ingredients
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Cut the squash in half, and remove the seeds and any excess membrane.
Place cut side up in a baking dish. Cover the dish and bake for 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine cinnamon, pineapple, cabbage, nutmeg, allspice, cherries, and coconut.
When squash has been cooked, remove from oven. Let cool down for 10 minutes.
Carefully scoop out the pulp from both halves and combine with the pineapple, cabbage and cinnamon mixture.
Replace mixture into shells and return to the oven and bake for 7 minutes until pineapple is hot and bubbly.
