Dr. Hyman’s Green Breakfast Smoothie

Dr. Hyman’s Green Breakfast Smoothie

  • Ready In 5 minutes
  • Serves 1

This is probably the healthiest smoothie in the whole world. After giving up sugar for long periods of time, I find that I don’t need to have sweet shakes in the morning. Instead, I crave nutrient dense foods that fill me up and keep me going for hours. This smoothie, from my new book Eat Fat, Get Thin, is the best way to start your morning. Add a few berries if you’d like it to be sweeter.

Also, we are doing a giveaway this week! Share this recipe on your Facebook page and hashtag #EatFatGetThin for your chance to win a copy of my new book! Click here to view the PDF version.
