Benefits of this low fodmap smoothie
Hemp seeds are an excellent source of protein and essential fatty acids, including the anti-inflammatory omega-three fats.
Walnuts are another rich source of omega-three fats for brain health. The addition of walnuts provides an ultra-creamy texture and healthy fats to keep you satisfied and energized with long-lasting energy.
Cacao powder is an excellent source of magnesium which is a prevalent nutritional deficiency. Make this low fodmap chocolate smoothie full of nutrients, healthy fats, and plant-based protein if you find yourself craving chocolate.
Bananas are low fodmap when not overripe although 1/3 of a ripe banana is low fodmap according to research at Monash University. Unripe bananas are low in the fodmap oligo-fructans. As bananas ripen the concentration of oligio-fructans increases making ripe bananas high fodmap. Cacao powder and bananas are like two peas in a pod. They combine beautifully together to make an ultra-creamy low fodmap smoothie.
The banana naturally sweetens this low fodmap chocolate smoothie perfectly. Half a banana is allowed on phase 2 of the SIBO diet, making this SIBO friendly smoothie recipe suitable for phase 2 of the Bi-phasic diet.
I added ice to make this low fodmap smoothie chilled as I did not have frozen bananas on hand. Using a frozen banana is optional to make a cold smoothie.
Enjoy this low fodmap smoothie anytime you are craving chocolate, especially on a hot summer’s day!
