Okay, I am disclosing the recipe for my magical smoothies. I enjoy these bad boys most days of the week because 1. I am usually on the “run” moving from patient to patient, and/or shuffling my kids around to and from activities (activities I am usually involved in), 2. I need something to provide the most nutrition possible in a form that is acceptable to consume when in my office, and 3. I cannot afford to skip meals, or I will hit a wall and pass out. If you have trouble with bowel movements and don’t go after a day or 2 of these, then you need to seek out the help of a professional.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup of unsweetened plant based milk such as unsweetened almond milk.
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp or 14 grams of ground flax seeds
  • 20 grams worth of plant based protein powder such as Garden of Like Sport (my favorite)
  • 2.5-5gm of amla powder (2-3 times per week)
  • 1 serving of any variety of frozen berries
  • 1 serving of other frozen fruit (e.g. mango, pineapple, cherries or banana)

Directions


Place all ingredients in a decent grade blender (I am partial to my Blentec) and blend together on the smoothie setting. Enjoy!
