ManicI get so busy running kids around town, that I forget to eat enough fiber to keep things moving…if you know what I mean!
Managed:  Discussing this with another manic managed  mom, who told me about a magical smoothie that keeps your metabolism moving smoothly.  I’m all for that, so I gave this blended beverage a try.  Read on to see how to make this delicious and healthy drink.


The Get Things Moving Smoothly Smoothie

What You Need:

1/2 of a large banana

1 scoop (1/3 cup) of a Whey Protein like the EAS I purchased

1/2 Tablespoon flax seed oil (not pictured)

1/4 cup frozen mixed berries with lots of healthy blueberries mixed in

1/2 Tablespoon honey

2 teaspoons psyllium seed husks (I bought the one shown at Trader Joe’s)

8 oz. water

2 ice cubes


What You Do:

1.  First of all, I bought the Magic Bullet for all kinds of recipes, but especially for the smoothies, because after you make the smoothie, just rinse the blade and take the cup with you.  And managed moms are usually on the run, especially in the mornings!

2.  However, you can use any blender.  All you do is blend all the ingredients and it is ready.  Fast, frothy and healthy 🙂

Done and yum!

My gal pal, who shared this with me, told me that the original recipe came from the book, “You:  On A Diet” by Dr. Oz.  She modified it a bit and I really like her changes, so this recipe is her version.  I also happen to be a huge Dr. Oz fan, so this is a smoothie that I believe in. 
And yes… does work 😉

    I love my Magic Bullet! I got one for Christmas and I make my protein shakes in it. It’s life changing. I throw a scoop of Benefiber in for my extra fiber!

    I like to use a frozen banana for an extra cold drink and more fruity flavor. Thank you for the tip of the Magic Bullet!
