Vegan Berry and Turmeric Smoothie (Dairy-Free, Low FODMAP)

Today I'm back with another smoothie recipe. Smoothies are a great idea if you want to try and increase your fruit and vegetable intake. It's worth noting first of all that when you make a smoothie, you don't get rid of the fiber. But using your blender or Nutribullet should make it much easier to digest in theory as it blends down that fiber.

Even with IBD, we still need fiber (it has all sorts of health benefits) but in a flare, you might find it makes symptoms worse. I wouldn't recommend making this when in a flare but when you're in remission or well, I find it really helps to increase your fiber gradually so your body gets used to it!

This smoothie recipe is also suitable for the low FODMAP diet too. Some IBD patients follow this diet as it can help with some symptoms such as bloating. A note on chia seeds: if you've not used these before, they're high in fiber too so use in very small quantities (perhaps 1/4 teaspoon) and gradually introduce.
