Morning smoothie recipe by doctor, 63, who says he’s biologically 43
Longevity expert Dr. Mark Hyman shared his morning routine with Insider, which includes a protein-packed smoothie.
Hyman is 63 but said his “biological age” is 43, in part thanks to the way he starts his days, he told Insider’s Gabby Landsverk.
After strength-training for 30 minutes, Hyman whips up a smoothie that he calls a “healthy aging shake.”
It’s packed full of plant nutrients, healthy fats, and 48 grams of protein, which helps build and maintain muscle.
“As you get older, muscle mass is more important. It’s a critical piece of healthy aging,” Hyman said.
Here is the recipe for the smoothie that Hyman shared on Instagram:
- Almond butter or nuts
- Chia seeds
- Hemp seeds
- MCT oil
- Unsweetened almond or macadamia milk
Hyman gets 48 grams of protein by adding whey protein to his shake, he told Landsverk.
“This kind of smoothie will leave you feeling great all morning long,” he said.
