How This Smoothie Helps With Digestion

This gut-healthy smoothie contains an array of ingredients that are known to be beneficial for your digestion.

From helping you poop and relieving constipation, to battling bloating.

Here’s how exactly this smoothie helps with digestion based on the ingredients used:

  • Blueberries:
    • High in fiber which helps to regulate bowel movements and prevent constipation. (Source)
    • Contains vitamins and minerals that support the digestive tract’s overall health.
  • Pineapple:
    • Rich in bromelain, an enzyme that aids in the digestion of protein, reducing bloating and improving protein absorption.
  • Spinach:
    • Provides insoluble fiber, which adds bulk to stools and promotes a healthy and regular digestive system.
    • Contains magnesium, which can improve bowel movement by relaxing the intestines.
  • Chia Seeds:
    • High in fiber, which promotes bowel regularity and healthy stools.
    • The gel-like consistency when mixed with liquid can aid in soothing the digestive tract.
  • Oats:
    • A great source of soluble fiber, which can help to manage cholesterol levels and support healthy gut bacteria.
    • Helps in stabilizing blood sugar levels, preventing spikes that can affect digestion.
  • Lemon Juice:
    • The acidity from lemon juice can help break down food more efficiently, easing the digestive process.
    • Rich in vitamin C, which plays a role in the production of digestive enzymes.
  • Kefir:
    • A fermented milk drink packed with probiotics, beneficial bacteria that enhance the gut microbiota, supporting digestion and absorption.
    • Contains enzymes that can help break down lactose, reducing symptoms of lactose intolerance.

Alternative Variations Of This Smoothie For Digestion

Smoothie For Digestion

Since everyone is different, you may not tolerate some of the ingredients I used in the original recipe, for that reason, I have tested numerous different variations, using a variety of different ingredients.

Below are some of my suggestions:

  • No Oats: Swap the oats for flaxseeds or a tablespoon of unsweetened nut butter, such as almond butter.
  • Swap The Spinach: You can use any other leafy greens you like in the place of spinach.
  • Kefir Substitute: Swap the kefir for yogurt, but you will need to add 1/4 cup of water to help the blending. 
  • The Blueberries: Can be swapped for raspberries. Raspberries have more fiber too.
