Blue Healer


Serves 1, preparation time 5 minutes

My favourite skin saviour recipe for healing and repairing the skin. It’s deliberately sweetener-free and fruit-free and surprisingly pleasant tasting, depending on the type of milk you use (I use organic unsweetened oat milk — shake your milk before using to disperse the creaminess). The supplements are optional, but note it’s the magnesium glycinate and B vitamins in Skin Friend AM that change this naturally purple smoothie to aqua/blue. If you have MCAS or severe histamine intolerance, stir in 500 g of glutathione powder after you have finished blending (as high-speed blending can damage glutathione) or take in capsule form.

  • 1 cup organic oat milk (contains gluten) or GF plant-based milk of choice (p. 92) or blend 1 cup filtered or spring water with 1⁄4 cup rolled oats until smooth

  • 1 tablespoon fresh mung bean sprouts or pea shoots, rinsed in water

  • 1⁄4 cup finely sliced red cabbage

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon hemp seed oil or flaxseed oil (begin on 1⁄4 teaspoon)

  • 1 g magnesium glycinate/bisglycinate powder* and/or 2 scoops Skin Friend AM (optional)

NOTES:

To make this dish FID friendly, use mung bean shoots over pea shoots and omit the hemp seed oil. 1/4 teaspoon of flaxseed oil can be considered if the skin is tolerating small amouts of flaxseed oil.

Place all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. *1 g is about 125 mg of elemental magnesium in magnesium glycinate or magnesium bisglycinate powder (depending on the brand).
