Leaky gut is tied to a range of health conditions, from food sensitivities and irritable bowel syndrome to autoimmune diseases and inflammatory skin conditions like acne. It’s why I recommend transitioning to a healing foods diet and transforming your health from the inside out.
This Gut-Healing Smoothie is one of my favorite recipes to soothe the gut and demonstrate just how easy and delicious healthy eating can be. All the wholesome ingredients work together to make a creamy drink that’ll satisfy your taste buds while soothing your gut and it couldn’t be more simple to make.
Throw all your ingredients in a blender and blend on high until the gut-healing smoothie is nice and smooth, about 2 minutes. Serve over ice and enjoy.
Because this drink is effortless, you might underestimate how powerful and good for your gut it is. That’s a mistake! This one gut-healing smoothie is brimming with more nutrients than your average meal. The benefit-rich avocado gives it a creamy texture while boosting your healthy fat intake. A mix of honey and ripe bananas make this naturally sweet. And several cups of my favorite leafy greens, kale and spinach, add heaps of vitamins, especially vitamins K and A.
If you’re worried that a mix of fruits and veggies won’t keep you full, chia seeds have come to the rescue. They’re packed with fiber, ensuring you feel full for longer. Along with a scoop of protein powder, this smoothie will tide you over for hours.
Do your gut a favor and make this healing smoothie today.
