Dr. Chutkan’s Magic Smoothie

I love my Magic Smoothie. Its full of live food and bloat-busting fiber and is a great way to start the day. Its an outstanding alternative to breakfast cereal thats been sitting in a box for months or pancakes or muffins that are broken down into pure sugar resulting in excess gas production, weight gain, and inflammation. With the added psyllium, it’s also a healthy way to curb your appetite if you’re trying to lose weight. I recommend having this often, for breakfast in the morning or as a snack later in the day. Heres the recipe:


In a blender bowl, combine:

1 sliced ripe banana

2 cups mixed berries

1 cup raw spinach, kale, collards, or chard

1 tablespoon ground psyllium husk*

1 tablespoon ground flax seed

1 cup crushed ice

1 cup of almond milk, coconut milk, or coconut water

Blend well and drink immediately. Makes 2 large servings.


*If you’re new to psyllium husk, start with 1 teaspoon and gradually work your way up. Check out my Psyllium Husk How To Guide.
