There is nothing better than a green banana smoothie in the morning. I didn’t use to feel that way though. Drinking spinach was never a plan of mine until I started a low fodmap diet. I started sharing my stomach issues a few weeks back and have decided to share my drinks and food concoctions along the way. This is one of my favorites! While banana is considered a low fodmap fruit, too much of it constipates me so I have to be careful how many bananas I eat. I am sure you are glad to know about my constipation issues. haha . My husband called me the other day from work after he read my post about “poop” (he never reads my blog so I was shocked when he called about it) and said, “have you lost your mind talking about poop on your blog!?” I asked him why all of a sudden he is reading my posts and he said, “well, the title read – lets talk about poop….so I was curious.” Geesh, that’s what I have to share to get him interested ;).
Ingredients to mix in blender:
2 cups unsweetened almond/coconut lactose free milk (or water)
3 ice cubes
1/2 cup pineapple
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach (I usually grab a small handful)
*This makes enough to fill my 20 ounce sip & go cup
I have never been good at getting my daily dose of fruits and vegetables and I must say, this idea of blending them together 1x a day is perfect for me. I try to mix them up though, sometimes I use water and other times I use the lactose free almond/coconut milk *unsweetened*. Water supposedly digests easier but I didn’t feel a difference when I used the milk. It’s gets a little boring using just water.
