FEATUREDRecipes

Everyone needs a go-to smoothie recipe!

Smoothies are easy to prepare and loved by everyone. Add a few gut-healing supplements for an extra nutritional boost. Make a big batch and pour into freezer-safe mason jars for a freeze-ahead meal or snack. Smoothies are perfect for travel, packed lunches, and busy mornings at home. This version includes avocado and coconut milk for healthy fats, leafy greens for added nutrients, and two low-FODMAP (short-chain carbs that aren’t absorbed well) fruits for a touch of sweetness.

Ingredients

1 can coconut milk
1 banana
1 cup blueberries
½ avocado
1–2 cups chopped kale or swiss chard
Filtered water (optional)
Gut-healing supplements (optional)

Preparation

Blend all ingredients, except filtered water, in a high-speed blender.

Add gut-healing supplements such as probiotics, vitamin D drops, and L-glutamine (optional).

Recipe Options

Add fermented drinks like kefir or kombucha to add a bit of probiotic power to your smoothie.
