Mount Doug Smoothie

The morning Mount Doug Smoothie.   What better way to start your energized day!!  This is the recipe that Dr. Jennifer and I drink almost every morning.  I hope that you will enjoy these smoothies just as much as we do.

  • 2 cups of frozen mixed Raspberries, Blueberries, and Blackberries
  • 1 tbsp flax seed(ground)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 c water (or 100% juice of choice)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 servings of Protocol protein isolate whey powder

Instructions:  In a blender, combine the frozen mixed fruit with the liquid (liquid should just clear the frozen fruit).  Blend until fruit is pureed.  Add the cinnamon and protein powder until well blended.  *To achieve personal preference, use more/less equally distributed liquid to the frozen berries.

Nutritional Benefits:

  • Raspberries– Contain tannins that are high in antioxidants and are a great source of manganese and vitamin C that prevent oxygen-deficient related tissue damage. Contains folate, magnesium, potassium, copper, and acts as a beneficial form of dietary fiber.
  • Blueberries– Contains extremely high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Blackberries–  Contains extremely high antioxidant properties, dietary fiber, folate, manganese, and vitamin C.
  • Flax seeds (ground)– Always use ground flax seed in order to obtain full nutritional potential.  Contains high values of fiber, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids (anti-inflammatory).
  • Coconut Milk–  Contains manganese, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus (bone health), iron (prevent anemias), magnesium (nerve and muscle health), potassium (lowers BP), and zinc (prevents prostate cancer).
  • Cinnamon–  Contains manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.  It lowers cholesterol, regulates blood sugar, reduces proliferation of cancer cells, anti-clotting,and is  anti-inflammatory.
  • Protein Isolate whey powder– The difference between concentrated protein and protein isolate is that protein isolate contains higher protein content much less fat or lactose.
