Mark Hyman Smoothie

Today I’m sharing a fabulous smoothie recipe with you from my friend and 10x NY Times best-selling author, Mark Hyman, M.D. As many of you know, Mark wrote the foreword for my cookbook, Eating Clean. He’s an incredible person, functional medicine doctor and friend. His work is inspiring and truly magical. He’s helped so many people get their health and their lives back from health issues spanning from heavy metals to gut imbalances to nutrient deficiencies and more. I’m amazed at how eager and devoted he is to helping us live in a word that’s full of organic, wholesome foods and medical care that truly cares about getting to the root cause instead of just looking to cover up symptoms with a band-aid approach. So, in honor of his new cookbook, Eat Fat, Get Thin Cookbook, I’m sharing one of the best smoothie recipes that I’ve tasted in awhile!

Mark Hyman Smoothie

This is a super easy smoothie that you can make in under 5 minutes for breakfast in the morning or for an afternoon snack when you need a pick me up. Unlike most smoothies, this one has coconut oil in it to give you a dose of healthy fats to hold you over and keep your metabolism going strong! It’s also got arugula, my favorite detox veggie, strawberries, avocado (an incredibly healthy fat) and unsweetened almond or hazelnut milk. It’s delicious and I’m so excited to share this recipe from Mark’s cookbook with you. I’m also giving away a copy of his new book. To enter, leave a comment below as to why you want to win this cookbook.

I’ll pick a winner on December 15th after 5PM EST. Good luck!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. I have been on a mission over the past few years to help my family be more healthy l, and food is the best way to do that! I am very intrigued by this idea, and would love to use this book for our daily life.

  2. I would love to win Mark Hyman’s new cookbook because I would love more nutritious recipes to help further my commitment to being healthy in body,mind and spirit. Thank you also for your wonderful recipes too.

  3. Why I want to win this book?

    My family struggles with diseases too much: obesity, metabolic syndrome, severe depression, joints pain, eczema and recently my little boy of 5 yo has been diagnosed wirh autism. We have enough to just miserably survive!
    This is also hard to change lifestyle. We need to educate ourself, to find ressources and recipes!

  4. I love functional medicine, and want to share it with my friends and family. I would love to have a copy of this book so that I can make all the recipes from it and share with others.

  5. I just bought your book last week, I’m planning on starting to go clean. I have several health issues, lupus, primary immune deficiency, Sjogren’s adrenal insufficiency due to over use of steroids. I want so bad to feel alive again. I am a RN and out of work because of my severe fatigue, chronic pain and frequent infections caused by my immune system .i can’t wait to start my new life following your 21 day detox. Thank you, Laurie
