stomach-soothing smoothie

This stomach-soothing smoothie is really good for your digestive system, the papaya is incredible at cleaning out your small intestine which is very helpful when you have coeliacs disease. If I am ever "gluten-nuked or gluten-ed" making my stomach bloat, cramp and all the other far worse symptoms I get... I initially drink my pineapple green juice with it's wonderful digestive enzymes in it every day to help calm down my system and after about 3-4 pineapples (3-4 days) I am ready to move onto this wonderful tropical stomach-soothing smoothie. The other benefit is the mango which helps counter the depression that gluten can trigger in those with coeliacs disease. Basically this smoothie is a tropical treat with wonderful health benefits. I add blueberries because my body loves them - but they are not essential to this stomach-soothing smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana peeled & broken up
  • 1 mango skinned & stoned
  • 1 papaya skinned & deseeded
  • 5 dates soaked
  • handful of blueberries*

Method:

  1. Dump all the ingredients into your liquidiser and blitz.* I like this smoothie 100% fruit, thick & über indulgent.

  2. Pour into a glass and any spare stomach-soothing smoothie into a glass jar with a lid to store in the fridge ready to enjoy later. 

Notes:

*If you fancy add some ice or some m!lk alternative. I tend to always have slices of banana and blueberries in my freezer so use some of them to help the chill factor rather than using ice.
