Often, many people don’t even realize they have a leaky gut which usually results from an autoimmune disease. To help restore the gut and body, you must pay close attention to your diet.
One of my favorite ways to help restore the gut and soothe inflammation is to eat foods that are anti-inflammatory and rich in essential gut-friendly nutrients and probiotics like you’ll find in these AIP smoothie recipes.
All you need is a good blender to start benefiting from nature’s amazing healing foods.
It doesn’t matter if you are on a paleo diet, vegan gluten-free diet, or somewhere in between, we’ve created a list of delicious gut healing smoothie recipes that you can easily modify for your own personal dietary preferences.
After reading this, you’ll be on the path to reducing inflammation and healing your gut, one sip at a time!
Coconut Mango Spinach Smoothie
If you were recently diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and are following the autoimmune protocol, or if you are just beginning to add green smoothie recipes into your diet, it can be hard to adjust to the flavor of recipes containing leafy green vegetables. This kid-friendly Coconut Mango Spinach Smoothie uses foods that will promote good digestion and won’t trigger any “flare-ups” when you drink it. You can also add your favorite plant protein powders to this recipe like hemp protein, to boost the amino acid profile.
This five-ingredient Peppermint Smoothie recipe contains vitamins and minerals that promote a stronger immune system by providing essential gut flora. This works for paleo diets and vegan gluten-free diets – you can choose how you want to customize this to meet your dietary needs.
Kefir Gut Healing Smoothie
Fermented foods are great for an AIP diet since they are loaded with probiotics. This coconut water, Kefir Gut Healing Smoothie recipe contains lots of Vitamin B12, magnesium, and other important nutrients. Kefir contains a number of good probiotics, making it a prime option for a smoothie. Get ready to feel lessened symptoms from your leaky gut!
Healing Pineapple Smoothie
Herbs, spices, fruits, and vegetables are all packed into this Healing Pineapple Smoothie. With natural anti-inflammatory ingredients (such as turmeric), it’s the perfect smoothie to drink when you want to begin healing from the inside out.
Gut Healing Smoothie
Kale and spinach are two leafy greens that help with the healing process for your body. This Gut Healing Smoothie contains superfoods and beneficial ingredients full of fiber in order to help combat your leaky gut and symptoms resulting from your autoimmune disorder. The interesting mix of ingredients makes for a unique and original flavor. You can also add collagen protein (gelatin) or whey protein (for non-vegans) to boost the amino acid profile. If you are vegan, try a plant-based protein powder.
Healing Turmeric Smoothie
Don’t like the taste of most green smoothie recipes? Try this Healing Turmeric Smoothie recipe with fruits and vegetables like carrots, mangos, and papayas. All ingredients have healing properties, and it tastes delicious!
Chocolate Protein Smoothie
Following an Autoimmune Protocol diet does not mean you should miss out on your favorite tasty treats. This Chocolate Protein Smoothie is like a banana smoothie but with a twist: it uses ingredients like avocados (rich in healthy fats), bananas, and non-dairy milk such as coconut milk to create a recipe that tastes like a dessert. Regulate your immune system while you sip on something sweet!
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Because dairy is not a health-positive food group, you may think this AIP smoothie recipe will lack creaminess – but this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie shows you that is not the case! By using pumpkin, dairy-free coconut milk and avocado, this recipe maintains a creamy consistency while still working to regulate your hormones, provide healthy fat and support your immune system.
Blackberry Turmeric Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are a fun twist on smoothies. But you can easily add these ingredients into your favorite blender and enjoy on the go! Turmeric is a strong fighter of inflammation, and blackberries are a powerful fruit full of antioxidants. With these two ingredients and multiple sources of protein, this Blackberry Turmeric Smoothie should work to alleviate symptoms of chronic symptoms while helping restore your gut biology. Feel free to swap out the blackberries for strawberries or blueberries.
Blueberry Mint Smoothie – The Perfect AIP Breakfast
If you have mint tea in the cabinet and are looking to do something different with it, this Blueberry Mint Smoothie is a perfect excuse to use it! Enjoy this for a morning breakfast or even an afternoon snack. The blueberries in this recipe are naturally sweet and rich in antioxidants. The avocados create a creamy texture and provide the essential fats our body craves. If you don’t like blueberries, I am sure you can swap for other berries like strawberries.
Lettuce is a great leafy green with ample benefit (I suggest trying boston lettuce). If you don’t like the texture of green smoothies, spice things up with this Sunrise Smoothie recipe. It has the bold and powerful flavor of pineapple; orange; and grapefruit, you will forget you are eating anything green I promise! You can drink this healthy smoothie recipe for breakfast or any other time in the day.
