Recipe: Digestive Support Smoothie

This digestive support smoothie helps beat bloating, IBS, IBD and food intolerances.


Hi everyone- today I have another smoothie recipe post, since my anti-inflammatory smoothie post was a big hit with you all! This recipe for a digestive support smoothie can give your gut a helping hand- since the bananas contain plenty of prebiotics and the papaya contains digestive enzymes (which in particular can help with things like bloating and dare I say it, flatulence– think that’s the first time I’ve used that word on this blog but let’s run with it!)  It also uses turmeric (which I put in everything since it beats inflammation and Hemp Milk- which is a great source of Omega 3( which is easier to digest than cows milk and again packs an anti-inflammation punch) As I’m trying to boost calories, I also used Nutribix- gluten free weetabix- this is optional and I’d suggest it if you are using the smothie as a meal replacement.

Most of the ingredients for this post (other than the Hemp milk, nut butter and Nutribix) came from my Natural Blender box*: I wrote about these guys a while back:they are a great way to introduce smoothies to your diet.

      does it vary when the banana is ripened? could be starches or FODMAPS
