Pineapple Ginger Smoothie (For a Good Belly!)

36

Earlier this week I shared our GoodBelly Reboot Results! GoodBelly is a line of dairy-free probiotic beverages, and they have a 12-Day Belly Reboot that officially starts today! Though you can take the challenge anytime, join in now for a fantastic discount and to enter their big giveaway. Tony and I discovered several surprising benefits for our digestive health and our bank account with the GoodBelly Reboot. Plus, I had the chance to experiment with several new-to-me smoothie combinations. My favorite was this Pineapple Ginger Smoothie.

5 Simple Ingredients for a Healthy Gut

Most importantly, this pineapple ginger smoothie tastes amazing. But it also contains a very symbiotic “healthy gut” blend of ingredients, based on the research I’ve read.

Banana

The prebiotics in bananas can help to “feed” the probiotics in this pineapple ginger smoothie, helping them to proliferate in our digestive system. They also contain pectins and other fibers that allow this somewhat high sugar fruit to still be good for our guts.

Pineapple

This tropical fruit contains natural digestive enzymes that are extracted to make supplements. To date, research has focused primarily on the supplements. However, many health practitioners have reported improved digestion in patients who regularly incorporate pineapple in their diets.

GoodBelly StraightShot

This probiotic oat milk beverage really speaks for itself. It’s dairy-free and soy-free for those who simply can’t stomach these top food allergens. Plus, it is very high in probiotics (20 billion in that single shot!), otherwise known as the “good bacteria”.

Flaxseed

The type of fiber in flax seeds has been shown to help in the digestive process and improve the intestinal absorption of nutrients. In addition, the lignans in flaxseed are linked to a reduction in colon cancer risk.

Ginger

This rhizome’s anti-queasy effects aren’t simply an old-wive’s tale. Research has proven its superpower for fighting unsettling symptoms. I often use powdered ginger for taste preferences. But for maximum potency, you can swap in 1 to 3 teaspoons of fresh crushed or minced ginger. It’s very strong, so start by blending in a little and add more as desired.

Special Diet Notes: Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, optionally vegan, plant-based, and vegetarian.

For strictly gluten-free, I recommend swapping in 1/3 to 1/2 cup certified gluten-free GoodBelly Tropical Orangeade JuiceDrink.
