Blueberry Gut Healing Protein Shake



Yield 2 shakes


  • ¼-1/2 cup of organic frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup of organic full-fat coconut milk in the can
  • 2 scoops of Gut Healing Protein or another protein powder of your choice that is good for healing the gut (the nutrition info is based on the Gut Healing protein though!)
  • 1 tsp of organic cinnamon

Optional Ingredients:


Step #1:  Gather ingredients

Step #2:  Take the coconut milk out of the can (it is often divided into a clumpy, fat portion and water portion) and put it into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  I will often blend up 2 cans at a time and then place the whipped up coconut milk into a glass mason jar.

Step #3:  Add in the frozen organic blueberries, gut healing protein, cinnamon and greens (if you desire).

Step #4:  Serve and enjoy!

Dr Jockers Comments

You can make this tasty recipe in less than 60 seconds and it has incredible nutrients that support your brain, gut. and metabolism.  The gut healing protein shake is full of anti-inflammatory compounds to help you thrive in life.

Blueberries are rich in anthocyanin antioxidants that taste great and help to reduce inflammation.  The coconut milk is full of healthy medium chain fatty acids that support fat burning.  Coconut milk is also rich in lauric acid which is a natural anti-candida agent that destroys fungus and yeast.

The gut healing protein is a pea protein base formula that has no sugar and lots of fermentable prebiotic fibers that support the production of good bacteria in our gut.  It also has 5 grams of L-glutamine, 200 mg of turmeric, 250 mg of quercetin, 150 mg of ginger and SO MUCH more gut healing nutrients.  This is my go to healing protein for individuals with autoimmunity.

You can also replace the Gut Healing protein with a high quality collagen protein such as our Organic Bone Broth collagen which is loaded with key amino acids that help to heal the gut lining.  We have this in a chocolate and vanilla flavor.

    Hope that you will and is able to give your help and feedback, – So much appreciated!!

    1. I use Osso Good bone broths. They have chicken, beef, bison, pork and duck bone broths. They also have specialty mixes for immunity, digestion, etc. They come frozen in bags. Most are 20oz. They aren’t cheap, but I think the flavor is much fresher and better than Kettle & Fire. If I’m making something that calls for a large quantity of bone broth, I will use the K & F to augment the Osso Good.

  2. Hi Dr Jockers

  3. Hi Dr. J,
    Will the Gut Healing protein irritate my SIBO??? I have SIBO with a lot of weight loss (weigh 102 lbs.) and now my liver is enlarged….I need to use the smoothie for extra calories, but do t want to irritate the SIBO or the liver..thanks in advance for your guidance!

  4. My 19 yr old son has placque psorrasis. I would like to give him the blueberry smoothie daily but getting him to stop the sugar addiction and processed foods is a battle. Will the shake even help without these other modifications and if so how long would you expect to see improvement.

    1. Definitely getting off of processed sugars, processed vegetable oils, and grains will be a very important step to take. This shake will have benefits either way but those factors will hold back progress to an extent Leanne!

  5. I have been diagnosed with Leaky gut and I need to come off of anything with yeast, allergy to blueberrys, eggs. cows milk will this 10 food lisy help with trying to heal gut and also any vinegar like in pickles, salad dressings please help with this.

  6. Dr Jockers I struggle with Histamine intolerance and I’m on a low histamine diet right now. Ive been told Bone broth can contain histamines but I WANT to heal my gut too! What do you recommend? Any smoothie recipes I can tolerate?

      1. Hi I too have histamine issues and avoid collagen but I’m sure my body needs some. I’m allergic to beef and the marine ones flare me. Any suggestions for a clean low histamine version that’s bovine free?

  7. I have problems with pea protein. Are there other proteins that are available? I’m having a hard time finding them to make smoothies, etc. Thank you!

  8. Hello Dr J!
    I have leaky gut/SIBO. Currently do a morning shake very similar to yours except I replace coconut milk with water as I’m sensitive to coconut-a products. Any alternative suggestions to get a healthy fat?

  9. Like ur video recipe, my question is how can I increase my bone density t- score ? With protein, exercise, etc? Evenity is drug recommended, but I want to try first with nutrient dense nutrition. Thanks for any advice or recommendations. God bless. . Zen

  10. Dr Jockers,……Overall this blueberry shake looks very nutritious and tasty, but I do have one concern about an ingredient, the cinnamon. No mention of whether this is Ceylon or Cassia. Amazon does not specify either. At any rate, the 1/2 tsp is near the upper limit for max daily dosage of Coumarin. Here is a quote from below linked article on safety. “The tolerable daily intake of coumarin is approximately 0.05 mg/pound (0.1 mg/kg) of body weight, or 5 mg per day for a 130-pound (59-kg) person. This means that just 1 teaspoon of Cassia cinnamon could put you over the daily limit (3Trusted Source).”
