Benefits Of Miso Smoothie

This miso smoothie for digestion, is not only tasty but so good for you too.

Miso offers many digestive benefits.

Combined with the other ingredients used in this smoothie, this drink contains many benefits, making this smoothie worth making!

The main benefits of this chocolate miso smoothie include:

Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

When I was developing this recipe, to my surprise, miso worked very well with many different ingredients.

This allowed me to experiment with different flavor combinations.

Here is a list of some variations you could try that I thought came out just as delicious!

  1. No Chocolate: For a no-chocolate smoothie, you can swap the cocoa powder for oats, peanut butter, or flaxseeds.
  2. No Banana: Swap the bananas for either a cup of frozen mango, pineapple, or mixed berries!
  3. Protein Boost: Add a scoop of flavorless and unsweetened protein powder (I used brown rice powder) for a boost of protein.
  4. Green Goodness: Adding a handful of kale, collard greens, or spinach is a great way to boost the nutrition of this smoothie without impacting the flavor.
