As you know, I blog a lot about juicing but not so much about smoothies! Some smoothies can be difficult to digest if they have a lot of fibre but I’m always being asked about easy to digest smoothie recipes. Therefore I’m excited to share this gut friendly smoothie recipe with you today; it’s full of lots of goodness and can be adapted depending on how sensitive you are to fibre. I recently also made a delicious iced smoothie lolly version of these smoothie so make sure you check that recipe out too!
The key to an anti-inflammatory smoothie is turmeric and ginger, both of which do amazing things for your digestion .
- Always add organic turmeric to smoothies (Cheapest I’ve found here USA / UK) and add a pinch of black pepper to maximise absorption.
- Turmeric is vital to anti-inflammation and I always recommend trying to supplement turmeric with black pepper in addition to putting it in smoothies. You’re looking to find a mix of turmeric and black pepper .
- Ginger is another great anti-inflammatory. I always recommend buying it fresh- top tip if peeling; only peel very thinly as most of the goodness is located in the top layer.
