Whether you have IBS or simply want to optimize your energy and health with a nutrient packed smoothie, the following recipe is for you!
Start with half a cup of unsweetened, organic kefir for the probiotic, magnesium and calcium contents. Then add one quarter of an avocado, for the gut-healing essential fatty acid benefits and spinach for a healthy dose of antioxidants and soluble fibre. Next, throw in a handful of berries because they contain pectin which is soothing to the digestive system and vitamin C which is healing. Then add lemon to help detoxify your liver and get your digestive juices flowing for the day. And finally, add a fingertip sized slice of ginger for its anti-nausea and digestive stimulating plus soothing properties.
This smoothie is one of my favorite ways to start the day. In addition to an unique flavor profile, it is packed with a double punch of antioxidants and fibre from the blueberry`s and chia seeds. The kefir provides beneficial probiotics and you even get a chance to sneak in a few dark, leafy kale greens! If you use fresh blueberries or want a thinner smoothie throw in a handful of ice.
