Gut-Friendly Protein Smoothie

Smoothies are all the rage lately. They are delicious and an easy way to get in a ton of nutrients. However, depending on the ingredients used, some can leave you feeling bloated and gassy. I put this recipe together to help avoid those post-smoothie symptoms. The protein powder I used is the Fermented Vegan protein powder from Genuine Health. Consuming fermented foods is a great way to incorporate probiotics (or good bacteria) into your diet. Ensuring that we have good bacteria in our gut can help aid digestion and decrease symptoms such as bloating, stomach pain, gassiness, constipation and diarrhea.
