I make this nourishing LOW FODMAP ‘Green Goddess’ 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 you will feel amazing!

WHAT’S SO 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.

The recipe below makes two glasses of green {goddess} goodness that will nourish your body with vitality. It makes the perfect cleansing breakfast or afternoon pick me up. It’s also very portable ! just pour into glass jars – seal and place into the fridge for 1 – 2 days until required. Add a splash of apple juice for a hint of sweetness.
