The De-Bloat Green Smoothie

This is a perfect recipe to assist in reducing bloating. It is really high in potassium to help reduce water retention, and the ginger helps soothe the digestive system. And it tastes great too!

  3. Lemon juice (from half a lemon)
  4. Ginger (to your liking)

A teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar  also makes a great addition. It is excellent for reducing bloating (and gas).

Green smoothies aren’t everyones cup of tea, but this variation is a must try, and the combination of avocado and cacao is deceptively delicious.

Ingredients:

  1. Frozen bananas (2)
  2. Avocado (one)
  3. Baby spinach (two handfuls)
  4. Pitted dates (small handful)
  5. Raw cacao powder (approx 20g - 30g)
