Smoothies for Gut Health

Smoothies for Gut Health


We're not going to sugarcoat it: The best smoothies for gut health are made from fruits. But fruit isn't something you think of as being nutritionally dense. And it's not. So what makes these so good for your gut? It's in the fiber! Fruits have a lot more fiber than vegetables, which means they don't digest as quickly and they stay in your system longer—which is exactly what we want when we're talking about keeping our gut healthy.

Pineapple, Mango, and Kiwi Smoothie


  • Pineapple, mango and kiwi (1 cup each)
  • 1 banana (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup to taste

Directions: Blend all ingredients until smooth. You can add more ice to make it thicker if you like.

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

  • 2 cups (500 mL) of blueberries
  • 1 banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) of orange juice
  • 4 ice cubes
  • Place all ingredients in a blender, starting with the liquids first and ending with the ice cubes. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately. Makes 2 servings.
  • To make it taste better: Add more frozen fruit or yogurt to give it a thicker consistency as well as flavor depth. For example, try switching out half of your blueberries for strawberries or raspberries—they have a similar sweet taste but different textures than blueberries do when blended into smoothies! 3. To make it healthier: Replace orange juice with water; you'll still get plenty of vitamin C without all those added sugars! You can also add some dark chocolate chips to boost antioxidants even further—but be sure not too much since they do contain saturated fat content that isn't good for inflammation management over long-term use!

Two-toned: Avocado and Strawberry Smoothie

This recipe is so simple that you may already have the ingredients in your fridge or pantry. If not, plan to buy them on the way home from work so that you can have a smoothie for dinner tonight!


  • 1 avocado
  • 6 strawberries (about 1 cup)
  • ½ banana (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup milk or almond milk (dairy-free options are great too!)


Frozen Chai Latte

If you're a fan of chai tea lattes, then this smoothie will be your new favorite. While it's not exactly like a chai latte from Starbucks (because you can't add foam or whipped cream to a smoothie), it's still very delicious and comforting.

To make the frozen chai latte:

  • Brew 1 cup of black tea and let it cool completely before adding it to the blender
  • Add 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder, and an optional sweetener like honey or maple syrup for added sweetness if desired (we used about 10 drops of stevia)
  • Blend until well-blended

You can make super good smoothies out of fruits.

Smoothies are a healthy and fun way to blend fruits and veggies into a refreshing drink. They're also easy to make! You can do it yourself, with just a blender and some ice. Or, you can buy pre-made smoothies in the grocery store or at your favorite juice bar.

There are so many different types of smoothie recipes that you can create by adding different fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices to the mix. The possibilities for deliciousness are endless!
