When you have Crohn’s disease your body is working twice as hard to take in nutrients. Reaching optimal nutrition is important for everyone but especially those with an autoimmune disease. I have this breakfast smoothie pretty often because my GI tract thinks a lot of the good I put in my body is bad so I like to switch it up with this.
Here is one of many smoothies that I have in the morning. Classic Strawberry Banana Smoothie. It is SO EASY and keeps me full from 7:00am- 12:00pm. TRY!!
You will need:
1 1/2 Cup of water- coconut water
Ice to your liking
Directions: I use a nutriBullet to assemble all the ingredients and I use the fill line (see picture above) for my liquid and ice. Then I blend to my liking.
This recipe is Vegan, Gluten Free and Whole30 approved. I also use Coconut water- with pineapple to add an additional flavor to the smoothie.
**Mix it up- You can use almond milk instead of coconut water (Ive used unsweetened vanilla) and you can add Vegan Protein powder! I have used Vega Vanilla I hear JuicePlus has one but I have not tried it yet. Also for those who use JuicePlus you can empty your garden blend capsules to add your daily greens.
