Stomach Soothing Smoothie 3 Ways:

Since this smoothie simply isn’t one size fits all, some people might find that the ingredients used in my original recipe can trigger their stomach discomfort.

Which is why I have developed 3 other variations of this smoothie. 

Variation 1: A Nut-Free Variation of This Smoothie

chia seeds

In case you are nut-free, or nuts trigger you, here’s how to make a nut-free version of this recipe:

Instead of almond butter, use sunflower seed butter, and instead of almond milk, use any other milk that is ok with your body.

Some people find that drinking dairy milk can help settle their upset tummy, so if you can consume dairy, use dairy milk as the base for this drink.

Variation 2: Green Tummy Soothing Smoothie

washed spinach

The next variation you can try is a green smoothie! Making a green smoothie can be more useful on some people’s digestion, if fructose tends to trigger stomach discomforts.

For that reason, here’s how to make a lower sugar variation of this smoothie:

Instead of the berries in the original recipe, swap them for 2 nests of frozen spinach!
Finally add 2-3 fresh leaves of mint. Mint contains nausea and stomach soothing properties

Variation 3: Make It Chocolatey

cacao powder

Chocolate is probably the last ingredient you would think would work for relieving digestive discomfort.

However, some studies suggest that cocoa can have a profound effect on gut health. This is only true for quality dark chocolate.

To make the best chocolate smoothie for upset stomach, here’s what you need to do:

Use the  exact ingredients listed in the classic recipe, however, add 2 tablespoons of high quality cacao powder, or 2 tbsp of melted dark chocolate.

How Are Smoothies Good For An Upset Stomach?

Soothing Smoothie For Upset Stomach

Smoothies can be a great way to soothe an upset stomach caused by either IBS or other reasons. Smoothies are often easier to digest, and provide numerous health nutrients

Smoothies help with digestion and constipation because they can contain quite a lot of fiber.

However, you should choose your ingredients carefully when making a smoothie for stomach pain or other stomach discomforts you are experiencing.

The first thing you need to identify is what has caused the upset stomach, and what food triggers issues.

Once you have cleared that out, create a smoothie with ingredients that won’t trigger you or simply try my recipe.

The recipe I am sharing with you today is a recipe I make every time I have stomach pain, constipation or bloating.

The smoothie has been extremely beneficial to me.

If you have diarrhea though, try my smoothie recipe for diarrhea.

Popular Questions And Answers From The Community

Below you will find the answers to some popular questions I have been asked from the community on my social media group regarding this smoothie:

When Is The Best Time To Drink Smoothies For Upset Stomach?

The best time is ideally for breakfast, or between meals. You don't want to drink it on a full stomach, otherwise you may end up causing more discomfort. So drink the smoothie preferably on an empty stomach.

I Don't Like Bananas - What Can I Use Instead?

I get this question asked a lot. The best thing to use instead of bananas in the recipe is pineapple. Pineapple contains enzyme called bromelain, which helps aid digestion.

Can I Make This Smoothie And Drink It Later?

Since the smoothie contains frozen fruit, it doesn't store very well. I recommend that you drink it as soon as it's blended.

I Don't Have Frozen Fruit - Can I Use Fresh?

If you don't have frozen fruit as the recipe requires, do not panic, you can make the smoothie with fresh fruit. It simply means the smoothie won't be as thick and refreshing.
