Psyllium Husks Morning Protein Smoothie

Psyllium is derived from the plant Plantago ovata. Psyllium seed husks are indigestible in human beings and are often used as a source of dietary fiber. Psyllium seed husks are portions of the seeds of the plant Plantago ovata, a native of India, Iran and Pakistan. Psyllium seed husk is essentially one of the greatest all-natural sources of soluble dietary fiber.

Morning Smoothie with Psyllium Husks
  • Greens of some sort (use spinach, lettuce, or cabbage, rotating between)
  • Half a cumber
  • 1/2 frozen apple (keep these in the freezer)
  • Some pieces of fresh mango or plum
  • My liquid vitamins
  • 1 tablespoon flax
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks
  • To the fill line with coconut water
put everything in the bullet and mix for 1 minute. Yumm! Some days you will be also add a banana.

Yogurt & Berry Protein Smoothie


  • 1 apple, cored and chopped (a banana also works)
  • a handful of blackberries, ideally frozen (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, or a combination of berries, also work)
  • 150g yogurt
  • 15g unflavored whey protein (use Pulsin’s Organic Whey Protein)
  • 1 Tbsp psyllium husk (optional, adds fiber and makes it thicker)
  • 1 tsp flax seed (optional, also adds fiber and thickness)
Put everything in your blender and blend until smooth, about 20 seconds. Serve in a cup (or bowl!) with your favorite garnishes.

Psyllium seed powder, however, is mostly soluble fiber. That means it’s a prebiotic. Psyllium supplements are also available in capsules. You can shop for top-quality brands of psyllium products, whole husks, husk powder and capsules, at kadampsyllium.com
