Gut Support Smoothie with Turmeric

By Dr. Josh Axe

March 17, 2022

If you’re prone to experiencing occasional bloating and gut discomfort, then you may have a hard time eating heavy breakfasts or big meals.

A whole-foods based smoothie can be a great option for supporting digestive and gut health because it doesn’t require your body to process and break down bulky or aggravating foods, even though the smoothie can still provide you with filling fiber, performance fats and plenty of other nutrients, too.

The recipe below for our Gut Support Smoothie includes several ingredients that can help support general digestive and gut function — including bone broth protein powder and spices like turmeric and ginger.

Gut Friendly Ingredients

Bone Broth Protein Turmeric powder is the star of this smoothie due to its gut-related benefits such as supporting integrity of the gut lining. Ancient Nutrition’s Bone broth powder provides the same benefits as a true bone broth stock in a simple, easy-to-mix powder.

BBP naturally features 19 amino acids as well as type II collagen — which inherently provides chondroitin, glucosamine and hyaluronic acid that help support connective tissues in the gut, as well as the skin, joints and tendons — plus turmeric root, which has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic tradition for its unique properties.

Another nutrient you’ll find within this smoothie is fiber from the pear, which has purposefully been cooked in order to make it easy to digest, which can help to feed the “good guy” microbes living in your GI tract.

Additionally, raw honey provides you with antioxidants, enzymes and phytonutrients that can generally support a healthy immune response, while ginger root is a good source of compounds such as gingerol that help calm the tummy.

How to Make This Gut Support Smoothie

Preheat your oven to 350 F. Slice the pear in half and place it face down on a baking sheet. Cook for 20 minutes. Then chill in the refrigerator for another 20 minutes. 

Once the pear is done chilling, place all ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth, adding water and ice if necessary.
