It’s here! It’s HERE! The start of epic holiday spreads and all the comfort food dinners while we’re tucked safely inside our homes cozy and WARM. 

I love this season so much for many reasons, but let’s be honest, mostly because of the food 😝

Once November hits it’s game over for me and comfort food. It’s like this gravitational pull that starts between my kitchen and all things warm and delicious and filling. 

And Thanksgiving always brings that truth to life in the most real way. The mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, etc etc etc, just steal the comfort food spotlight!

And since it’s been dropping into the 30’s this week in Seattle, we might as well embrace those vibes by relishing in the warmth of our kitchens and eating all of the coziest foods.

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 ⚡️
