What’s UP babes?! How’s your week going? You ready for this yummy healthy gut smoothie that I’ve got for you today?

Like probably all of us, this summer has been crazy busy. And whenever I’m on the go more than I’m not, the first place I always notice some imbalance in my immune system and overall health is in my gut and my digestion. Now that summers come to an end I’m really focusing in on that and doing everything I can to get back to feeling 💯.

Whenever my gut does start to feel a little funky something that helps get me back on track is switching my breakfast to a healthy-fat / probiotic / fiber rich morning smoothie.

If I’m winging it, my smoothie formula goes something like this:

  1. Grab whatever frozen fruit I have on hand, always favoring berries if I’ve got ’em
  2. Throw in some fresh veggies from the crisper drawer – fresh carrots in smoothies are my JAM! If you’ve never tried including them, you have to. Greens always win, too.
  3. A low sugar liquid such as water, coconut water, coconut milk, almond milk or whole leaf aloe vera juice (only the unsweetened variety!) for some extra gut soothing goodness
  4. A chunk of lemon with the peel cut away and/or some ginger for anti-inflammatory YUM
  5. A big scoop of collagen powder to not only support the gut, but also give a little extra boost to connective tissues, hair, nails and skin 👊🏼

But this specific recipe for this specific raspberry mango healthy gut smoothie has been on repeat as of late, and it’s really been hitting the spot, so of course I wanted to share it with youuuu ⚡️

Ok, so when was the last time you guys had a black, vanilla scented almond milk latte? Neverrr?! I thought that might be your answer.

My first time sipping one of these wasn’t too long ago actually. I had a little bit of experience with taking activated charcoal for an gas and an upset tummy, but never in the latte form. That was, until Patrick and I were hanging out in LA for our anniversary a month or so ago.

I know, I know – it’s a likely story. Girl goes to LA, tries a black latte and brings the recipe back home with her. But it’s so GOOD, you guys! I’m all for trends if they are actually worthy of some love. And it’s so tasty and easy to make that I thought you all would enjoy creating an iced activated charcoal latte in your kitchen, too!

And since it’s the beginning of October and Halloween is around the corner, it just kind of felt right.

Let me assure you this latte tastes way better than it looks, and is also pretty dang good for you. Activated charcoal is what gives it the deep (dare I say, “spooky”?) black hue, but mostly it just tastes like a very delicious vanilla almond milk latte.
