This is my go-to drink when my IBS and digestive health takes a turn for the worse. Turmeric acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps to keep stomach acid from getting out of control. This magical spice also has a soothing effect on the bowels, calming them down and allowing them to function properly. I also love to add ginger to this drink since it also provides gastrointestinal relief and contains anti-inflammatory properties! Along with cinnamon to help stabilize the blood sugar levels, this smoothie is a win-win! I like to enjoy it first thing in the morning or make half of the recipe to calm and soothe IBS symptoms before bed!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
It’s important to note that dairy can exacerbate IBS symptoms for some. Be mindful and notice how your body reacts to ingredients, like Blair has done. If you’re using a dairy-free yogurt, watch for carrageenan, a common thickening agent that can be an irritant.
