6 Ingredient (Anxiety Busting) Protein Smoothie

Every now and then I run across a recipe that must be shared. I found this delicious and nutritious treat by way of Nutritional Psychiatrist, Uma Naidoo, M.D.  The primary focus of her practice is to assist with the mental well-wellbeing of her patients by way of nutrient dense foods…

With nutrient dense food, a little goes a long way and is often packed with essentials that the body needs to operate more fully and to feel more well rounded in all areas of life. 

“This smoothie has a balance of low-glycemic index carbohydrates, healthy fats, fiber, and protein, this chocolate and cherry protein smoothie makes for an excellent on-the-go breakfast that will keep you full, focused, and calm throughout your morning.” As she describes the recipe. 


Chocolate & Cherry Protein Smoothie


  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries (pitted)
  • 1 scoop protein powder of choice (Note: Opt for one made from mostly whole food ingredients with minimal added sugars or artificial sweeteners)
  • 1 tbsp organic unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp raw nut butter
  • 1.5 cups spinach or mixed greens
  • 1 cup hemp milk
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • 1 tbsp chia, flax, or hemp seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon to help balance blood sugar (optional)


  • Put all the ingredients (except the milk) in my glass blender bottle the night before and leave them in the fridge. In the morning add the milk and blend.
