This smoothie is dessert for all intents and purposes but is still healthy. With no sugar it is great for a keto diet and for breaking a fast. It has chai medicinal mushrooms, healthy fats, probiotics and bone broth protein to heal the gut. It is a great option for seed cycling in the luteal phase as it has sesame (black tahini) for progesterone support. I love black tahini as it has a unique flavor all it’s own. I also use it to make these cookies.
I use Ancient Nutrition Vanilla Bone Broth Protein, which is available in my Wellevate Store.* I use dōTERRA cardamom essential oil from the culinary collection and cinnamon cassia is a nice addition as well. The black tahini I get from Kevala Organics. If you prefer a vegan option for protein, the Q Sciences EQ Protein is pea based. I get the chai medicinal mushrooms, Q Armor, from Q Sciences as well. In fact, right now it is on sale for 50% off the normal price. Visit my Q Sciences shopfront and select “preferred” to find it. There is a $10 fee but it is more than double to shop it retail at the moment. If you need help with Q Sciences or if you would like me to send you a Wellevate recommendation with my favorite smoothie ingredients send me a message here.

*I sometimes like to add modified citrus pectin, as clinical studies show it helps with a myriad of issues from autoimmunity to arthritis. I get MCP from EcoNugenics (PectaSol-C) as it is an extremely powerful immune modulator, detoxifier and supports cardiovascular and cellular health. It doesn’t taste like much so blends into everything and is available in my Wellevate Store
