One summer I felt very sluggish, light-headed, and knew I had to make a change to re-boot my system. I discovered the book Revive by Frank Lipman, M.D. and regained my energy instantly. The author swears and lives by morning “green” shakes. Quote: “I am so convinced of a smoothie’s healing potential for those who are spent that if changing your diet to eat a smoothie every morning were the only thing that you took away from this book and integrated into your life, I would be satisfied.” How can I argue with the good doctor over a smoothie? Below is Dr. Lipman’s recipe for his Banana Berry Smoothie.
- 1 Frozen, small banana in chunks
- 1 cup mixed, frozen berries
- 1 serving or 3-4 tablespoons vanilla or plain whey protein powder
- 1 serving or 2 teaspoons green powder
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 4 ice cubes
and Voila, so yummy, even the dog will beg.
Btw, how cute is my dog?
