4 Super Smoothie Recipes that Pack a Prebiotic Punch

4 Super Smoothie Recipes that Pack a Prebiotic Punch

Smoothies are a perfect way to take our Great Gut Extra Strength Prebiotic Fiber and Oligo30™ Premium Prebiotic Fiber Blend. These products are formulated to ensure that every adult is able to reach the recommended daily amount of prebiotics. As a supplement to healthy eating, Great Gut products will help you get enough prebiotic fiber into your diet each and every day.

Blueberry Bonanza Smoothie

Blueberries are a prebiotic, and are high in antioxidants and a good source of vitamin C! Combined with oatmeal and banana, which are also prebiotics, this smoothie will have your gut healthily humming in no time!

1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 unripe banana
½ cup vanilla yogurt (we like Greek style, but use whichever kind you prefer, including dairy-free)
½ cup rolled oats (you could also use Scottish oats)
1 cup milk (any percentage, or use soy/rice/almond milk)
1 Tablespoon honey (or your preferred natural sweetener)
1 Scoop Great Gut Extra Strength Prebiotic Fiber and Oligo30™ Premium Prebiotic Fiber Blend

Amazing Apple Smoothie

Apples are another great-tasting prebiotic, and this recipe is so good, you’ll want it every day

1 large apple, chopped*
½ cup vanilla yogurt (we like Greek style, but use whichever kind you prefer, including dairy-free)
½ cup milk (any percentage, or use soy/rice/almond milk)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (you can adjust that to taste – more if you want a strong cinnamon taste)
1 Tablespoon honey (or your preferred natural sweetener)
1 Scoop Great Gut Extra Strength Prebiotic Fiber and Oligo30™ Premium Prebiotic Fiber Blend

*We recommend leaving the peel on, as that gives you more of the apple’s prebiotic fiber. Just be sure to wash carefully.

Heavenly Jicama Smoothie

Jicama is high in prebiotic fiber, so adding it to your go-to list of smoothie ingredients is a must.

1 unripe banana
4-6 oz. raw jicama, peeled* and chopped
½ apple or pear**
½ cup vanilla yogurt (we like Greek style, but use whichever kind you prefer, including dairy-free)
1 cup milk (any percentage, or use soy/rice/almond milk)
¼ teaspoon powdered ginger (adjust amount to taste – fresh grated ginger is also good)
1 Tablespoon honey (or your preferred natural sweetener)
1 Scoop Great Gut Extra Strength Prebiotic Fiber and Oligo30™ Premium Prebiotic Fiber Blend

*For jicama, use a knife to peel, not a vegetable peeler. The skin is quite thick, and a knife will make the job much easier.

**Again, we recommend leaving the peel on all fruits where the peel/skin is edible, as that gives you more good fiber.

Sweet Sunchoke Smoothie

Not only does this have prebiotic benefits from the sunchokes (aka Jerusalem artichokes), but the cacao powder is also fantastic for your gut!

1 unripe banana
1.5-2 oz. sunchokes*
½ cup vanilla yogurt (we like Greek style, but use whichever kind you prefer, including dairy-free)
½ cup milk (any percentage, or use soy/rice/almond milk)
1 ½ Tablespoons cacao powder (can use unsweetened cocoa powder instead)
1 Tablespoon honey (or your preferred natural sweetener)
1 Scoop Great Gut Extra Strength Prebiotic Fiber and Oligo30™ Premium Prebiotic Fiber Blend

*Sunchokes don’t required peeling, just be sure to wash the skin carefully.

Bonus Smoothie Tips:

Don’t be scared to play around with smoothies – they are easy and versatile, perfect for breakfast, after a workout, or even as a snack.

Want a thicker smoothie? Reduce the amount of milk/liquid and use more yogurt. Use less or more spices until you find the taste that’s perfect for you. You could easily add oats to any of the above recipes – just be sure to add more milk/yogurt to achieve a creamy texture and consistency. You could also add flax seeds, kale or other vegetables, to any of the above. 

Enjoy!
