Often I am out the door and off to work before I am hungry for the first meal of the day. Plus, I like to practice intermittent fasting for various health benefits, so I make this smoothie before work and pack it into a wide mouth thermos that keeps my smoothie cool for several hours.
I specifically made this smoothie without banana as bananas are high in resistant starches, which can aggravate SIBO symptoms and used to be one of my trigger foods.
