3 tips for making ANY smoothie more digestion friendly:

Yesterday I spent the morning ALL up in the kitchen testing smoothie recipes for my second book (coming Spring 2018!!).

Contrary to what you might see all over the magazines, most smoothies are NOT digestion friendly. Yes, smoothies can be packed with superfoods and greens, and they can be healthy, on-the-go breakfasts or snacks BUT most smoothies are loaded with fruit and ice, which are not the easiest for our bodies to digest.

Our bodies and our bellies are warm, and they really love warm foods, especially first thing in the morning. I like to think of the digestive system like a fireplace – you want to keep that fire (your metabolism!) burning steady and strong throughout the day. When you drink an icy cold smoothie first thing in the morning, you run the risk of putting out that fire. That being said, there are a few ways you can upgrade ANY smoothie to make it more digestion friendly.

I was inspired by my recipe testing session to film a Facebook LIVE video teaching you exactly what I do to make my smoothies more digestion friendly.
