Since my surgery, I have been starting my day with a green smoothie of some sort. My entire digestive system has been very compromised due to illness over the past three months (I will blog about what I went through soon).. and I am slowly but surely rebuilding health from the inside out. I am making a point to take in at least 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk and two tablespoons of chia seeds daily in a probiotic rich base. I am using home cultured soy kefir (post coming up).. and I feel like it is REALLY HELPING!
Peach Spice Green Smoothie
- 12 oz soy kefir, yogurt or non-dairy milk of choice
- 8 oz water
- 1 tbsp psyllium husk
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 8 oz frozen peaches
- 1 frozen banana
- nutmeg, cinnamon and stevia to taste
- several drops almond extract
- 4 cups loosely packed spring mix
This makes a huge blender full. I drink the whole thing all morning long.
