Peanut Butter Smoothie

Some people with IBS may have to limit what they eat due to triggers or because they are trialling a diet like the Low FODMAP diet to help get their symptoms under control. A side effect of this may be that they experience some weight loss. For some of you that may be a welcome side effect, but for others it may not be and it can be challenging to maintain weight with a restricted diet.

IBS-friendly peanut butter smoothie recipe

One thing that helped me during this time was smoothies. Sipping a smoothie in-between meals definitely helped me keep my energy up and provided with me with much needed nutrients.

This recipe is in line with the Monash Low FODMAP App at the time of writing, but of course it’s not for everyone. Hopefully it may give you some ideas about how you can introduce some delicious smoothie combinations into your day!
