11 Smoothies For IBS Developed By An Expert

As someone who has suffered with IBS all my life, I had to figure out how to still drink and enjoy smoothies and not flare up my IBS.

After years of testing and developing recipes that are not flare-up triggering, I am happy to share them with all other fellow IBS sufferers. 

Smoothies For IBS

Are Smoothies Good for IBS

Not all smoothies are made equal and are good for IBS. However, most smoothies can be beneficial to those who suffer with IBS.

I am speaking from personal experience; some smoothies trigger flare ups, others not. 

Because we are all so different, each person will react differently to different types of smoothies and ingredients.

What Fruit Is Safe With IBS?

a bowl of fruit salad

Since most smoothies are made with fruit, it’s important that you know exactly which fruits are good to put in your next IBS-friendly smoothie.

I did a lot of research, and of course tested it on myself, as someone who personally suffers with IBS, and found that these fruits below didn’t flare up my IBS:

  • Bananas
  • Avocado
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Cantaloupe
  • Citrus Fruit (Lime, Lemon, Oranges, Grapefruit)
  • Cranberries
  • Kiwis
  • Grapes
  • Cucumber

But, fruit isn’t the only ingredient that creates a smoothie.

IBS-Friendly Smoothie Ingredients:

IBS-Friendly Smoothie Ingredients

Now that I have covered what fruit is good for IBS, I’ll now share a list of other smoothie ingredients that I have used for years that I know are IBS-friendly!

  • Kefir (Unsweetened)
  • Yogurt (Unsweetened & Unflavored)
  • Dairy-Free Milk (Homemade only worked for me)
  • Leafy Greens (Spinach, Kale, Swiss chard)
  • Nut Butter (Unsweetened)
  • Cacao / Cacao Powder
  • Seeds (Chia, Flax, Hemp)

Obviously, it’s very important that you also test and see whether these ingredients work for you.

For example, I found that even though cabbage and pineapple are listed as OK for IBS, I found that they triggered my IBS badly.

We are all different, what works for me, may not work for you! I am only sharing my personal experience and what works for me.

My Homemade Smoothie Recipes For IBS
