Low FODMAP Green Smoothie

5 minute Gut-friendly & low FODMAP smoothie! I’m dreaming over warmer days and my go to breakfast during spring/summer is a green smoothie. I made this gut friendly by using kefir (aka alllll the probiotics), unripe banana (aka allll the prebiotics + low FODMAP friendly) and adding in some baby spinach to get my daily dose of greens

The key to a perfect smoothie is having 3 main components: fat, fiber and protein. Kefir or Greek Yogurt make great options, but if you’re dairy free try pea or hemp protein. Fat comes in the form of PB for this smoothie but I love almond butter, tahini or avocado too! Finally fiber comes in the form of fruit, greens & flaxseeds but I also love using chia seeds or extra veggies! (Zucchini, kale and carrots are some of my faves).

Ingredients:

-1 cup unsweetened almond milk

-1/2 cup lactose free kefir (i like @greenvalleycreamery )

-1 small unripe banana

-1 tbsp natural peanut butter

-2 handfuls of spinach

-1 tbsp flaxseed meal

-1 tsp maple syrup (optional)


Directions:

1. Blend & enjoy!
