Dr. Vincent Pedre’s Chocolate-Covered Almond Smoothie
I enjoyed being a featured guest recently on Dr. Oz’s show on how to beat the bloat and have a happy gut.
He shared this recipe on his blog, as I recommend drinking this smoothie daily to prevent next-day bloat.
The secret ingredient in this smoothie is hemp hearts, the shelled seeds of the hemp plant. They are an amazing superfood, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins, and enzymes. You can find them at many health-food stores.
- 2 cups almond milk or coconut-almond milk
- 2 tsp cacao powder
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground chia seeds
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 1/2-2 scoops protein powder
- 1/4 cup hemp hearts
1. Add all the ingredients in the order given to the blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Add a few ice cubes if you prefer a cooler smoothie.
Here is the recipe on Dr. Oz’s site.
