Bananas: I love bananas because they’re great for when I want something fast, sweet, and nutritious. I have learned that it has lots of 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 it the nice smooth texture and rich sweet taste.

Sweet Potato is a great source of fiber, which helps with digestion. I normally consume sweet potato 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’re having 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. The fact that all of my food is broken down before I consume it makes 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!
