Avocado-Banana Smoothie for Digestion and Inflammation

Leave a comment


Who knew tackling digestion and inflammation could be so fun and tasty?

Kristine of The Gluten-Free Lifesaver brings us this delicious avocado-banana smoothie that is not only bursting with flavour and an unbeatable creamy texture, but packs some major health powers!

Bananas are fantastic for digestion in that they support healthy bowel movements and avocadoes contain anti-inflammatory properties. To top it all off, this smoothie is loaded with folate and makes for the perfect prenatal food supplement.


For one smoothie you’ll need:

  • 1 Medium Avocado, soft and peeled (halve portion for lowFODMAP)
  • 1 Banana
  • ½ Cup Natural yogurt (Greek, dairy-free or otherwise unsweetened)
  • 1 Cup unsweetened almond milk/ soy milk/ rice milk or similar
  • 1 tsp natural (organic) Vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp Maple Syrup (or honey if you prefer)
  • Ice Cubes or crushed ice

Simply pop it all in the blender and give it a good twirl! Enjoy 🙂
