1-2 tsp dried coconut flakes (sweetened or unsweetened)
1-2 tsp hemp seeds or chia seeds
Sprinkle of coconut flakes
1/4 cup frozen or fresh raspberries, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, or kiwi
1/4 cup low-FODMAP granola of your choosing
1. Peel the banana and add it to the blender along with the frozen spinach, frozen pineapple, chia seeds, coconut oil, cold water, coconut flakes, and vanilla protein.
2. Blend the ingredients until smooth but thick. Add more water or add ice to obtain the appropriate consistency.
3. Pour blended ingredients into a bowl and top with your favourite toppings! Feel free to use my suggested toppings from above.
4. Now go enjoy your tropical smoothie while imagining you are on a relaxing beach oasis somewhere!
To make it even thicker you can use a frozen banana instead! Just be sure to keep it green if you are trying to keep it low-FODMAP
*Keep in mind that different people will always have unique trigger foods. These products and foods have worked well for me, but they may not for everyone. Overall this is a low FODMAP recipe but playing around with portion sizes, substituting ingredients, and the amount of each ingredient can be helpful if you react to any of these foods!
