I could have sworn that I posted this recipe before, but I can’t find it anywhere! Requests come to me daily for my “super smoothie” recipe because it starts of the day right by balancing blood sugar and helps stop gnawing cravings the rest of the day. Every ingredient in this delicious (almost ice cream like!) recipe is chosen with a specific action in mind. So don’t go adding all sorts of stuff (bananas, pineapple, agave, sugar laden nut milk, soy milk) unless you really understand nutrition!!! Long term daily enjoyment of this smoothie has helped repair my insulin resistance, blood sugar swings, anxiety / panic attacks, and adrenal fatigue.
SUPER SMOOTHIE RECIPE
2 scoops Power Meal
5 drops YLTG grapefruit oil for the taste, chemo prevention, bloating (lymph support)
2 drops YLTG nutmeg oil for the adrenals
¼ tsp of Redmond Real salt for the adrenals
1 heaping tblsp of coconut oil for thyroid, blood sugar, and yeast (candida)
1 raw egg for the protein, fat, and vitamin A (1/2 an avocado can be used instead of eggs)
Stevia extract to taste
About 10 ice cubes in the blender 1st, add ingredients. Then fill up with enough water so it will blend until smooth. Blend super well so it gets fluffy and the coconut oil and ice cubes are no longer chunky. Add Young Living’s stevia extract to taste. It’s not only for the sweetness, but stevia is known to help balance blood sugar and decrease cravings.
Sometimes I add 1/4 cup of blueberries, raspberries, cherries, or strawberries to this. Nothing else. NO BANANNAS OR PINEAPPLE – although delicious they are very high in sugar.
If you are at work or on the road and can’t take time out with a blender, just do Power Meal as a snack. It taste goods even on the go by just adding water.
In the summer time I will often crave ice cream. By slightly tweaking the recipe above by adding a few more ice cubes and 1/2 an avocado – the smoothie will be very thick and can be eaten with a spoon. Yummy and health … PERFECT!
