What’s not to love about Meghan Markle? Elegant and philanthropic, this royal-to-be is also a California native with TCM-approved wellness practices to prove it. We interviewed the former actress for our ‘Living Well With’ series a few years back — check out the full story here — and she shared not one, but two delicious and nutritionally balanced smoothie recipes fit for a (wellness) queen.
Meghan’s daily smoothie recipe is simple in all the right ways: all it takes is a few whole food ingredients that give you a nutritional bang for your buck (and are probably already in your kitchen). Clean protein powder provides energy, chia seeds offer more protein, fiber and essential omega 3s, blueberries bring on the antioxidants, cinnamon squelches inflammation and coconut water helps us hydrate deeply.
According to Meghan, sometimes she likes to mix the smoothie recipe up by using “frozen mango, a squeeze of lime, I swap the cinnamon for turmeric (which has unbelievable healing properties!) and just use coconut water”. Try the smoothie both ways and report back if you achieve Meghan-like energy levels!
Meghan Markle’s Daily Smoothie – Two Ways
1 packet of your shake powder of choice (I use Clean Cleanse vanilla)
½ cup of frozen blueberries
1 tsp of cinnamon
some chia seeds
½ cup almond milk
½ cup of coconut water
Blend together and enjoy!

I think you could try adding “honey” to that formula.
Honey comes from bees. It’s an animal product, and it’s not vegan.
Why does it have to be vegan? In fact she says she drinks cleanse shakes with manuka honey and bee pollen. To each his/her own.
The first thing I knew from Meghan Markle was that she was beautiful, her face beautiful and her heart. She is an idol
I made the Meghan Markel smoothie and I love the taste, energy, and it helps regulate the digestive system for me – I am keeping down and and getting rid of the tummy puffs.
What can if powder should I use and where to buy it
