Hello FODMAPpers!!

Last week, I shared a fantastic article on the FODMAP Nutrition & Dietetics Facebook page about the benefits of kiwi fruit (http://blog.katescarlata.com/2017/08/29/take-2-kiwifruits-call-morning/ ) so I thought that this week I would create a recipe including the sweet and delicious Low FODMAP fruit.

If you didn’t read the article then I suggest that you do, particularly, if you are IBS-C (constipation predominant). Not only are kiwi fruits super high in Vitamin C but also high in a particular fibre which has shown to increase stool bulk and laxation.

So if you do suffer from IBS-C why not start incorporating 2 green kiwi fruits a day into your diet, which you can easily do by making a smoothie like the one below.

Low FODMAP Kiwi Banana Smoothie

Recipe:

  • 2 x small green kiwi
  • Β½ frozen banana
  • 1 cup spinach or kale
  • 1 cup nutty milk of choice or lactose free milk
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Method:

  1. Blend ingredients in a blender and enjoy!!
  2. Try topping the smoothie with a tablespoon of Food for Health Blueberry, Vanilla & Teff Gourmet Protein Muesli for some extra crunch.

Wanting to add some extra gut health benefits to the smoothie?

Then why not add in a sachet of the newly FODMAP Friendly certified pro and prebiotic supplement Probiotics + Bowel Support by Blackmores?
