The Thyroid Restoring Smoothie
This fat-rich, anti-inflammatory, high-alkaline smoothie is not only absolutely delicious (and quick to make), but it’s absolutely perfect for your thyroid health.
Whether you’re struggling with hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism (or any other endocrine imbalance, this is amazing for your adrenals, pancreas, bones and brain too!) this smoothie will give your body a big helping hand in regaining that balance and restoring the ability of your thyroid to receive the correct signals and create and regulate T3 and T4 and all of it’s other critical functions.
Note the need to soak the almonds if you don’t have a powerful blender such as a Vitamix or Nutribullet. If you forget to soak your nuts (yes, very funny) and don’t have a high-power blender, just leave the nuts out and have them as a snack after!
Thyroid Restoring Smoothie Recipe
[Note: if you’re making this for yourself, keep the 2nd serve in an airtight container in the fridge and save it for tomorrow!]
1 dessert spoon coconut oil
1/2 bunch parsley
1/2 inch of fresh turmeric (or 1/4tsp dried)
200ml coconut milk (from a carton – the dairy replacement version, not the thick canned version)
100ml filtered water
1 handful spinach
1/2 cup of almonds (soaked overnight)
2 tbsp chia seeds
1) Blend all of the ingredients together until totally smooth! That’s it!
If you have a high-powered blender like a Vitamix or NutriBullet than you don’t need to soak the nuts, but if you have a regular blender try to soak for at least 6 hours.
If you’re totally out of time, leave the nuts out and just eat them as a side-dish 🙂
