Quick and Easy GutSMART Smoothie

Quick and Easy GutSMART Smoothie

I love talking about gut health.  It affects all of our systems from hormones, to sex drive to fertility and can cause chronic disease when it is imbalanced.  That is why I am so excited for my friend and colleague, Dr. Vincent Pedre, whom just released his new book, The GutSMART Protocol: Revitalize Your Health, Boost Your Energy, and Lose Weight in Just 14 Days with Your Personalized Gut-Healing Plan, and not only am I excited because he’s made the science so easy to understand, but also because the recipes in the book look mouth-wateringly DELICIOUS!!!

He’s given me a sneak-peak into one of the 65 recipes in his book, and I wanted to share it with you right away, because it will brighten your morning.

Energy-Boosting Hazelnutty Banana Smoothie Recipe

This delicious smoothie—from The GutSMART Protocol—is packed with gut and brain-boosting ingredients, making it the perfect breakfast (or afternoon snack) for a productive day or energized workout!
⅔ cup almond milk (carrageenan-free, unsweetened)
1 teaspoon rice malt syrup or allulose
½ teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla flavoring
4 teaspoons almond butter
¼ cup hazelnuts, plus 1 hazelnut, chopped, for garnish
2 Brazil nuts
1 frozen banana, cut into chunks

1. Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
2. Pour into a glass and garnish with the chopped hazelnut. Enjoy!

With 64 more gut-healthy recipes (the Beef Pho with Zucchini Noodles, my personal favorite, is to die for!)—and a personalized food-based healing plan for achieving a happy gut, in a happy body, with a happy mind—The GutSMART Protocol delivers more than just science. It makes the science of healing the gut, easy, practical, and oh…so yummy!
