Happy Digestion Smoothie

I found this smoothie  on the Oh She Glows web site, and I love it. It combines the power of many digestion-friendly and immune-boosting foods, such as:  

Pineapple (Vitamin CDigestive and anti-inflammatory benefits, immune support)

Fresh ginger (Soothes the intestinal tract and helps with digestion Anti-inflammatory and immune boosting)

Fresh parsley (Rich in vitamins K, C, A, folate, and antioxidants)

Avocado (Major anti-inflammatory benefits + heart-healthy fats)

Banana  (Rich in B6, manganese, Vitamin C, fibre, and potassium. Interesting to note – Soothing to the digestive track and thought to regulate the bowels and enhance friendly gut bacteria)

Lemon  (Rich in vitamin C. Aids digestion and helps flush out toxins)

Notes
  1. I found this recipe on the Oh She Glows web site. I tried it and LOVED it. The only changes I made is adding the mint and the extra 1/2 cup of pineapple.
  2. I also tried it without the banana, which was lighter, less sweet and really refreshing!
