It's nice and smooth and tastes like sweet potato pie in a glass! Give this delicious smoothie a try and tell us what you think! The key ingredients to this smoothie are:

Bananas: I love bananas because they’re great for when I want something fast, sweet, and nutritious. I have learned that it has many digestive and cardiovascular benefits, which is great for IBS patients. And personally, I just think that bananas are great for smoothies because it helps give them a nice smooth texture and rich sweet taste.

Sweet potato is a great source of fiber, which helps with digestion. I normally consume sweet potatoes with my solid meals. However, having it in a smoothie was a whole new experience, and I enjoyed it! It adds to the smooth texture and makes the beverage taste like you have your favorite sweet potato pie in a glass!

I find that the best way for me to manage my IBS symptoms is by having a partial liquid diet, meaning at least one of my meals each day is in liquid form. All of my food is broken down before I consume it, making the digestion process so much easier. Also, it's a great way to make sure that I'm getting in healthy meals daily, even when I don't have much of an appetite. This smoothie is great to have at any point in your day -it's a must-try!
