Smoothies and juices can be difficult for many people with digestive issues to tolerate. Fruit, even those which are classified as low fodmap and within the suggested 'safe' portion size, can leave you feeling sick, bloated and inflamed one day and absolutely fine on a different day. It's confusing and frustrating and can often leave people reluctant to consume fruit at all which is such a shame, but completely understandable. This smoothie is well balanced, full of flavour and should keep you feeling full without laying heavily in your stomach. I really hope you enjoy it.
