As I began the low-FODMAP diet, I was also transitioning off a liquid diet. That made smoothies my very best friend for a bit. They were more filling and nutritious than the liquids I’d been on, but they were still really gentle on my intestines. Win-win!
Now, Erin and I do smoothies for breakfast every single morning. They are filling, healthy, quick, and delish! Although I’ll be sharing several great smoothie recipes with you over the next few days, this strawberry and peanut butter one is our favorite.
Utensils/appliances you’ll need:
- A blender (We prefer to make ours in the Ninja Blending Cups…so convenient for mornings on-the-go. If you make this recipe in the Ninja Cups, split the recipe in half for each cup; otherwise, they will runneth over!)
- Measuring cups (These are really handy…you’ll only need one measuring cup for the whole recipe.)
- A tablespoon measuring spoon
Ingredients you’ll need (add them in this order for the smoothest blending!):
- One cup of crushed ice
- 4 tablespoons of peanut butter
- 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 3 cups of unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup of frozen strawberries
That’s it! Put them in the blender or Ninja Cups, mix, and go! You’ll start the day with a yummy source of fruit, protein, and fiber.
