A Healthy Smoothie for IBD, Crohn's and More

DSC_5116.jpg
I originally posted this recipe over on Babiekins Magazine blog, but I wanted to make sure to document it here with my recipes, especially under the "Cooking for Crohn's" series. We all love a good smoothie, but let’s admit it, sometimes we get carried away with adding too much fruit and juice and not enough other goodies. Our family has been making smoothies for years and we have finally created a few recipes that are a win-win when it comes to balancing taste and healthy ingredients. This is a personal favorite. I originally created this combination of ingredients for my son, who was recently diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, but found that it’s a perfect fit for all of our palates.

Strawberry, Banana, Mango + Protein Smoothie

Ingredients:
1 ripe banana
1 cup strawberries
1 cup mangos
1 handful of organic spinach
1 TBS coconut oil
1 scoop Green Superfood drink powder
1 scoop Organic Plant Protein Powder
1 tsp L-Glutamine powder
1 packet probiotics (we use VSL#3)
3 cups pure coconut water (we love raw coconut water)

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and mix until well combined.
Serve and enjoy!

** When adding supplements into your diet it is very important to speak to your physician or pediatrician about those supplements and the correct doses. Probiotics and L-Glutamine are great supplements, but please consult your physician before using.

** We do follow the SCD and Paleo diet for our son's Crohn's Disease but please note that not all ingredients listed above are SCD legal. They are, however, ingredients that my son can tolerate.
