Green Goddess Smoothie

Green Goddess Smoothie

This delicious smoothie is a prebiotic powerhouse that will keep your good gut bacteria smiling !  I make this nourishing LOW FODMAP  smoothie most weeks as it helps cleanse my digestive system and just makes me feel awesome !  I encourage you to enjoy this smoothie every day for one full week and let me know how you feel  !

What’s great about it:
Kiwi fruit contains an enzyme called actinidain that helps aid digestion and absorption of nutrients. Kiwi fruit also work as a pre-biotic for your gut. Pre-biotics are high fibre foods that stimulate the favourable growth of pro-biotic bacteria in the gut and help rebuild the natural levels of good bacteria that your body needs.   A good supply of pro-biotics in the gut will boost your immune system, enhance digestion and reduce digestive disorders. Green super foods such as kale and spinach  help to increase alkalinity and detoxification in your body that can promote healing. They are also rich in vitamins A, C and K and folic acid, as well as calcium, potassium, copper and iron. These nutrients are necessary for healthy bones, skin and eyes.

2 Kiwi Fruits, chopped with the skin
1 handful baby spinach leaves
1/2  lemon or lime – skin removed…
½ Lebanese cucumber
1  ½  cups water or coconut water
1 kale leaf or cavolo nero
1 teaspoon chia seeds or flaxseed.
1 teaspoon Natural Immune Support
1 sprig of parsley

Combine all the ingredients into a high performance blender.
Blend until smooth. Add more water if needed for a thinner consistency.
Pour into a large glass and enjoy.

NOTES:
This makes 2 glasses of green goodness that will nourish your body with vitality. It makes the perfect cleansing breakfast or afternoon pick me up. This is very portable too ! just pour into glass jars – seal and place into the fridge for 1 – 2 days until required.
Add ginger and turmeric for extra anti-inflammatory benefits.

    Do you mean include the kiwi’s skin in the recipe ???

    • Heidi says:

      I wondered the same, and ended up using them and whole and there was no trace of skin in the smoothie. I gather the skin’s good for you too Teresa? Absolutely delicious thank you.

  2. This looks awesome, I will be giving it a try tomorrow morning.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    I was so excited when I saw this smoothie recipe was low FODMAP- it’s great that the low FODMAP diet is getting more and more recognition. Can’t wait to try this!

    I can see why there is the emphasis on “high performance blender”. Have just sprayed half the kitchen green, but persisted… got ‘smooth’ in the end, and this is surprisingly delicious. I shall take you up on your one week challenge… Thankyou!

  5. Sandra says:

    Looks great but I have a kiwi fruit allergy can I use anything else instead?

  6. Karen says:

    This was the most delicious green smoothie recipe I’ve tried! I also added one piece of frozen banana and it was delicious! Feeling so fresh after drinking this.

    I used a green apple for this recipe instead of kiwi fruit and it was still delicious

    Hi Teresa. I’d just like to say how grateful i am for your website + recipes. As a teenager it’s really hard to lead a healthy life and even more so to find healthy alternatives to yum food but you’ve managed to do so and help me in that so thankyou! I love your recipes so much especially the ricotta hotcakes and the carrot cake. :)
