Chocolate Turmeric Smoothie

This may look like a simple chocolate smoothie, but it actually includes some gut health spices to help with IBS symptoms.

Turmeric, ginger and cinnamon help reduce inflammation, bloating and abdominal discomfort and support digestion.

The added black pepper and coconut milk add a little heat and sweetness and they also help the body absorb the turmeric better.

It's also dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian and low FODMAP friendly as per the Monash University Low FODMAP Diet App.
