Happy Digestion Smoothie

Looking to give your digestive system a little extra support? On top of taking a daily probiotic, healthy, nutrient-rich foods are a great way to support your digestive health. 

Speaking of nutrients, we have just the recipe for you! This “Happy Digestion” Smoothie is packed with vitamins and other beneficial ingredients. Plus, it’s quite delicious, and perfect for warmer weather!

It includes:

  Pineapple – Loaded with nutrients, and contains digestive enzymes

   Banana – Rich in vitamins, fiber, and potassium

  Parsley – Rich in vitamins, folate, and antioxidants

  Avocado – High in fiber, folate, magnesium, and potassium

  Ginger – Known for helping to support proper digestion

You’ll Need These Ingredients:

    • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
    • 1/2 large frozen banana
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 cup coconut water
    • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
    • 2 tablespoons avocado
    • 1 teaspoon packed fresh grated ginger
    • lemon or lime slice, for garnish

“Happy Digestion” Smoothie Instructions:

Simply add all ingredients to a blender and blend on a high speed until smooth. Made too much? This smoothie does well overnight. Throw it in the fridge and enjoy the rest the next morning!

While this happy digestion smoothie is delicious and nutritious, it can be challenging to eat well every day. Poor diet, as well as inactivity, stress, and other factors can lead to digestive challenges. Taking a daily probiotic, like Probulin’s Total Care, can help support proper digestion.

 Digestive health is important to your overall health. And because 70% of your immune system resides in your gut, taking a daily probiotic can help maintain your immune health!
