Low-FODMAP ‘Green Machine’ Detox Smoothie; Gluten-free, Vegan

Printer Friendly Version

This low-FODMAP ‘Green Machine’ Smoothie is your answer to a detoxifying, flat belly, great start to your day.  It combines the healthy sweetness of pineapple with calming effects of ginger and the nourishment and fiber of spinach (or kale).  Add to that the tartness of fresh lemon, texture from chia seeds and creaminess of yogurt and you will be craving this low-FODMAP Green Machine Smoothie all day long!

For even more protein, increase the protein powder, add some flaxseed meal or extra yogurt.  If you can tolerate Greek yogurt (lactose levels vary), feel free to sub that in for a bit more protein and thicker texture.
