This raspberry mango healthy gut smoothie is the perfect snack or breakfast for whenever your body needs a little extra love! Made with raspberries, mango, probiotic rich coconut yogurt, almond milk, and chia and flax seeds for extra fiber and omega 3 fatty acids 💯
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:
Grab whatever frozen fruit I have on hand, always favoring berries if I’ve got ’em
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.
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
A chunk of lemon with the peel cut away and/or some ginger for anti-inflammatory YUM
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 ⚡️
This 5 minute paleo green onion cilantro sauce is MAGIC, you guys. One of those sauces that you can make a million times and eat with every type of meal – from roasted veggies to a cast iron steak to buckwheat noodles. Ready in a flash and made with minimal ingredients, it will take an any meal from good to amazing!
Okay all you sauce loving readers of mine, this one’s for you.
A perfect 5 minute paleo green onion and cilantro sauce for you to put on EVERYTHING.
I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again (and again, and again… 😜) NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A GOOD SAUCE. It can literally take a meal from pretty okay to out-of-this-world amazing.
This green onion and cilantro loaded sauce has been on a very steady rotation in our house for at least the past 4 months.
I think I first made it at work on a whim and then made it again and again at home and beyond.
It sat in on an impromptu post-moving-day dinner with friends and turned our simple cast iron seared tri-tip steak into something super special and yummy. Has been poured over a pile of buckwheat soba noodles many times, and also marinated some crisp cucumber slices to crunchy tangy perfection (more on that one, in another post! 😉)
This mango coconut smoothie with turmeric and lime is not too sweet, but slightly floral and aromatic from the perfectly ripe mango, a bright clean layer of flavor from all that fresh lime juice that wakes up your taste buds, a little tropical creamy thing happening thanks to the coconut milk, and some anti-inflammatory love for your bod from the bold and vibrant turmeric.
Even though the first day of fall is literally right around the corner, I’ll still start some of my mornings with healthy and vibrant smoothies. Especially when they’re loaded up with immune boosting good stuff like vitamin C, anti-inflammatory turmeric and the good-for-you fat of sweet and creamy coconut milk.
Plus, sometimes as the days grow shorter it helps a little bit to have something that looks (and tastes) like sunshine in your glass 😉
