Functional smoothie from MD for hormonal balance
Bananas, chia seeds, and flax seeds add a good base of fiber. Yellow bananas, for example, contain soluble and insoluble fiber, about 3 grams per medium banana; chia seeds contain 11 grams of fiber in just 2 tablespoons; and 2 tablespoons of flax seeds can boast 7 gr. Add some spinach to the mix if you like, and you’ll add even more prebiotic fiber and antioxidants. And to ensure minimal fiber needs (rare for most Americans), add a scoop of your favorite fiber supplement.*
Of course, we recommend mindbodygreen potency+ organic fiber, which combines soluble, insoluble and prebiotic plant fibers to support satiety and healthy blood sugar levels, not to mention digestive regularity and comfort.*
While the blood sugar-balancing properties of smoothies will give you energy throughout the day, that extra boost from instant coffee sure doesn’t hurt. Plus, it can even help you simplify your morning routine (because why not combine coffee and breakfast in one step?).
