Happy Gut Kiwi Smoothie

It’s generally not the ideal topic of conversation, but having regular bowel movements is essential to sustaining overall good health. An irritated gut can lead to emotional disturbances, sleep problems, and illness, so it’s important to remain vigilant about your intestinal health. What you intake can determine how well your body is able to process and eliminate waste. Constipation is caused primarily by dehydration and malnourishment. With the Happy Gut Kiwi Smoothie you get the antioxidant and fiber power you need to stay hydrated and properly digest your food.

Each ingredient in the Happy Gut Kiwi Smoothie is chosen for a good-gut purpose. Insoluble and soluble fiber are absolutely necessary for maintaining good gastrointestinal health. Strawberries, bananas, and kiwis dominate this smoothie’s flavor profile, offering loads of both insoluble and soluble fibers. Just a tablespoon of collagen in this lusciously fruity drink helps keep your intestinal structure functioning properly and in good shape. While it is a really good idea to consume ample amounts of water and electrolytes, our smoothie is a welcome complement to your daily elimination routine. So drink up these vitamins, hydrate, and, for gut-goodness sake…release!

Happy Gut Kiwi Smoothie

  • Servings: 1
  • Ready In: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen bananas, peeled
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon collagen powder
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons hemp seeds

Health Benefits

  • Strawberries and hemp seeds: are fiber-fueled ingredients perfect for regularizing a stuck, yucky gut. Antioxidants and vitamins C and K in strawberries promote hydration. Insoluble and soluble fibers in hemp seeds and strawberries help bulk up stagnant intestinal waste for elimination ease. Whole hemp seeds, rather than hulled hemp, contain the highest amounts of fiber.

  • Bananas: help heal a leaky, runny gut. A combination of electrolytes and potassium restore balance for improved digestive health. 

  • Kiwis and almond milk: demonstrate impressive prebiotic qualities. In particular, kiwis promote the growth of good gut florae faecal lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. 

  • Collagen: supports the digestive system by repairing and nourishing the cells that line the intestinal tract.
