Recipe For Endo Friendly Smoothie

I like smoothies to have anti-inflammatory properties, which also make my gut flora flourish and help move things through easily (bye, bye constipation).

This Endo friendly smoothie is a great option as a snack or part of a meal. 

It contains:

  • Leafy greens which are great for endo. They are full of vitamins and minerals like iron. They decrease inflammation which can help you control painful flare-ups.

  • Banana and avocado are great to grow the abundance of gut microbes that break down fibre and produce metabolites that support gut health. Both help prevent constipation and bloating.

  • Chia and hemp seeds are sources of Omega-3 fats which can calm inflammation in endometriosis. Both seeds are sources of fibre which improve digestion. Chia seeds are also great for managing blood glucose spikes.

  • Raw honey is a potent prebiotic, nourishng gut bacteria and it has antioxidant properties supporting immune system, which means supporting endometriosis.

In this recipe, I didn’t add protein powder but please add one if you have this smoothie as the only snack.

I hope you enjoy it:

 

This recipe is for 2 servings.

Mix together in a blender:

  • 1 frozen banana

More Hormone Friendly Recipes

If you like this recipe, I have also created a FREE 7 Day Meal Plan For Balancing Hormones

1. It’s gluten and dairy free which have been considered inflammatory in some hormonal conditions.

2. Each meal has a combination of protein, fat and carbohydrates for stable blood sugar which is crucial for hormonal balance.

3. The plan includes fatty fish such as salmon and sardines for healthy fats especially Omega 3 fatty acids which reduce inflammation, increase energy and help in weight management.

4. Each day delivers enough fibre needed for reducing insulin resistance, increasing hormone metabolism and nourishing healthy microbiome needed for balanced hormones.

5. The plan also includes other hormone balancing foods like beans, legumes, nuts & seeds and animal protein.

6. I don’t like spending too much time in the kitchen so the recipes are easy to prepare and don’t take too much of your time.
