Ingredients

The following are the most common ingredients that I recommend for shakes, cooking and baking such as whey protein powder, xylitol, almond flour, coconut milk and oil, and many more. These natural or organic ingredients are top quality and provide optimum nutritional value, as well as being void of harmful additives, antibiotics, bovine growth hormone, added sweeteners and toxic chemicals.

Pregnant or lactating females or anyone taking prescription or over-the-counter medications should consult with his or her doctor before using these or any other ingredients.
Whey Factors by Natural Factors: A natural, unsweetened and undenatured whey protein concentrate powder with the highest biological value of any protein also void of antibiotics and bovine growth hormone. An excellent source of essential amino acids, lactoferrin and immunoglobulins necessary for protein synthesis, lean muscle development, immune system support, bone building, and cardiovascular health. This is a great protein for young and old, and for those trying to lose weight or improve their health.
Organic Freeze-Dried Acai Berry Powder by Sambazon: A natural berry with the highest ORAC value antioxidant and phytonutrient content of any fruit or berry. This amazing fruit is loaded with nutritional value that can only be fully captured via freeze drying immediately after harvesting. Acai berry is an integral ingredient used in all of Dr. Sardone's shakes and other recipes.
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil by Nutiva: A cold-pressed, organic and un-processed (refined) oil rich in nutritional value. An excellent source of lauric acid, a fatty acid found naturally in human breast milk and coconuts that provides immune system support. A rich source of medium chain fatty acids used for energy. When blended with extra virgin olive oil in a 1:1 ratio, the combination makes for an optimum oil blend for cooking and sautéing.
Organic Coconut Flour by Bob's Red Mill (4-pack): Unsweetened, high in fiber and protein and low in carbohydrate, as well as cholesterol and gluten-free. Coconut flour makes a healthy substitute for wheat and refined white flours. It can be used alone or in combination with almond flour.
Organic Pure Vanilla Extract by Simply Organic (2-pack of 4-oz glass bottles): The vanilla is extracted from organic whole vanilla beens without the use of dangerous chemicals, yielding a rich and pure vanilla flavor.
Liquid Lactase Enzyme Drops (30 ml) by SeekingHealth: Lactase is an enzyme naturally secreted by the digestive system necessary to breakdown milk sugar (lactose), however, some individuals including infants, do not produce enough (lactose intolerance) to fully digest milk causing irritable bowel symptoms. Adding liquid lactase enzyme to milk and other dairy products, prior to consumption, breaks down the lactose allowing for complete digestion and assimilation. The amount of drops needed will vary. Diabetics and those diagnosed with galactosemia should consult with his or her doctor before using lactase enzymes.
Xylitol by Now Foods: A natural sugar alcohol derived from non-GMO corn (not genetically modified). A natural type of sweetener with half the calories of table sugar, but much lower in glycemic index rating as opposed to table sugar. It can be safely comsumed by diabetics and those wanting to lose body weight (fat). Since xylitol cannot be fermented by bacteria, it reduces the risk for dental cavities, ear and urinary tract infections and candida overgrowth. Xylitol can be used to sweeten any desert, baked goods, beverage or shakes.
Organic Chia Seeds by Nutiva: A non-genetically modified (non-GMO) organic seed loaded with omega-3 (alpha-linolenic) fatty acids fiber, and protein. Chia seeds are a rich source of high ORAC value antioxidants and other powerful nutrients. Chia seeds can an be used in baking, sprinkled over salads, yogurt, mixed in jellies and jams or even eaten alone.
Unsweetened Organic Light Coconut Milk by Native Forest (12-pack): This product has 68% less fat than whole coconut milk and for those concerned about fat calories, this makes for an excellent choice. Although low in fat, most of the fat consists of medium chain fatty acids including lauric acid. These fats are used for immediate energy and immune system support. An integral ingredient used in all of Dr. Sardone's shakes.
Blanched Almond Flour by Honeyville (5 lb bag): This flour is very nutritious and tasty, as well as gluten-free and low-glycemic providing high fiber and protein, and very low carbohydrates. The majority of its fat content comes from medium chain fatty acids, which are a good source of immediate energy, most of which is lauric acid – a potent antimicrobial and immune system supporter.
Since coconut flour is very high in fiber, adding more liquid to the recipe is necessary.
TIP: You can replace 25% of any flour with coconut flour, but an equal amount of liquid must be added (½ cup of coconut flour would require you to add an additional ½ cup of water to the recipe).
