Fig Beet Blueberry Smoothie - a lower-sugar banana-free smoothie recipe

Before I discovered my banana intolerance, I drank smoothies every day. Since going banana-free, I go in and out of smoothie kicks depending on the state of my gut health. If I have an IBS flare up, I gravitate toward replacing a meal or two with a smoothie or bone broth, as liquid is much easier on your digestive tract than solid food.

This fig beet blueberry smoothie is one of my recent happy-gut concoctions. It incorporates ingredients that are not only easy on your digestive system, but are welcomed with open arms. I use a fig, a few hunks of beet, blueberries, pineapple, coconut milk yogurt (probiotics), almond milk, ground cinnamon, raw pumpkin seeds (a natural anti-parasitic!) and some collagen peptides (awesome for repairing damaged gut lining!).
