Bloated? You need this Anti-Bloat Smoothie in your life! This recipe is so quick and easy! It’ll make you wish you found it ages ago!
Why These Ingredients?
Cucumbers: They are loaded with water, which helps fight bloating.
Banana: Bananas are high in potassium. Potassium helps regulate sodium levels, which prevents water retention. Too much sodium is a big cause of bloating, so that’s why bananas (and other foods high in potassium) help with bloating.
Coconut Water: Like bananas, coconut water is high in potassium.
Ginger: Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory food as well as a digestive aid. It soothes the digestive system and relaxes the muscles of the digestive tract, which keeps you from getting bloated. You know I love my ginger. Take a look at that huge hunk of fresh ginger in the picture below. I eat one of those per week.
Apple Cider Vinegar: I list this one as optional in the smoothie recipe because the smoothie absolutely tastes better without it. Apple cider vinegar, however, is a rock star for reducing gas and bloating. So if you are super serious about reducing your bloat, add this to your smoothie.
½ cup coconut water
1 large cucumber, sliced
One inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
handful of ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until super smooth. Enjoy!
Hardcore Version: Add 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar to the mix
