The Best Smoothie for Gut Health

Are you at war with your gut and determined to win or have you given up and are convinced nothing will work???

I almost called mercy on my gut until I met a functional medicine doctor who guided me to the truth which led me to become a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Trainee (graduating soon!!) I’ve learned a TON and am still amazed at the science projects which go on inside our body.  

One thing is for certain, great gut health takes small, daily actions, and lots of tweaks before you’re feeling like your old self again. Believe me when I say, repairing your gut health can be enjoyable, refreshing, and energizing! 

This is why I’m giving you one of my best smoothie recipes for gut health plus the perfect template to make your own concoction.  

Banana Raspberry Probiotic Smoothie


  • 1 Cup milk, water kefir or yogurt 
  • 1 Cup frozen raspberries 
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (recommended product found here-> Coconut )
  • 1 tsp lemon cod liver oil (recommended product found here-> Lemon )
  • 1 banana 
  • 1 tsp inulin powder (recommended product found here-> Inulin )
  • Handful spinach 
  • 1 cup coconut water

Add all ingredients to your blender and pulse until smooth. 

I start my day by drinking a gut healthy smoothie.  Here is my cheat sheet so you can start making your own concoction.


Adding probiotics to your smoothies is a great way to start balancing your healthy bacteria in your gut.  

Here are a few ways you can add probiotics to your smoothies… 

  • Break open a few capsules of your probiotic supplement 
  • Water or dairy kefir (get cultures here
  • Grass fed organic yogurt (if you tolerate dairy) 
  • Kombucha tea 
  • A Tbsp of the Inner-eco supplement (coconut water kefir probiotic) 


Prebiotics feed the probiotics and help make your inner microbiome even stronger and more resilient. 

A few options for prebiotics to add to your smoothie include… 

Nourishing Oils

Healthy oils and fats help your gut to rebuild, strengthen the gut lining, and promote easy digestion and smooth bowel movements. 

A few of my favorite additions for smoothies are…
