Beat The Bloat Smoothie Bowl

I recently had an operation (that I will go through another time) which left my stomach super bloated and in quite a lot of pain. So, I searched high and low gathering a list of anti-inflammatory ingredients that I could mix into something tasty to help my stomach.

The bloat-fighting ingredients I incorporated include ginger, turmeric, avocado, walnuts & banana which all have natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Ingredients
  • 100ml non-dairy milk (soy/almond)
  • Handful of frozen berries – strawberries & raspberries are great
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 small avocado
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Ice
  • Walnuts to decorate
Method
  1. Place all ingredients (except walnuts) into your blender. I use my NutriBullet cause it’s super fast!
  2. Keep blending until you have a smooth mixture
  3. Add more milk or water depending on the consistency. I like my smoothie bowls nice and thick, but others prefer a more liquid mix.
  4. Pour into a bowl and add walnuts on top
  5. Enjoy your ‘Beat the Bloat’ creation and share your pics on instagram with #annmariejudge
TOP TIP

Add the ginger gradually! This ingredient is quite strong and overpowering so I’d recommend adding a little, tasting, and if you want to, then add some more.
