Gut healing green smoothie goodness for busy mornings
Dairy Free | Low Sugar | Keto Option
Gut healing protocol 2.0 has presented many challenges but something I have dearly missed is my fruit smoothies. Keeping things low sugar is super important while I heal the gut which means little to no fruit but that doesn’t mean I can’t still make a mean green smoothie and I am going to show you exactly how!
When it comes to ingredients, these are the exact ingredients I use to get that sugar free, sweet green smoothie filled with gut loving goodness!
Nuts – macadamias and walnuts are on the safe list for a low FODMAP / SIBO diet so I have been using both interchangeably but in this blend I felt like walnuts – they are also cheaper than my beloved macadamias. I have been buying organic walnuts from our local markets each Sunday which makes for a nice Sunday walk with bae.
Bone broth – yes that’s right, we are adding bone broth to our smoothie but not just any bone broth…. Gevity Rx have the most amazing range of products that are completely free from crappy ingredients and are totally gut healing protocol 2.0 approved. I LOVE and use daily the natural bone broth body glue which is unflavoured. I promise you do not taste one tiny bit of bone broth in your smoothie (or coffee) but you do receive all of beneficial amino acids that will work wonders for your hair, skin, nails and gut health! Ps. my nails grow like crazy when I am consistent with putting this in my smoothie every day and you can save 10% on your order with code BLONDE. Shop here.
Greens powder – I know, I know, it can be hard to get those greens in and that’s exactly why I live and die by the Melrose Essentials Greens Powder. It is clean as a whistle, doesn’t even contain a sweetener which I think is best so you can choose your own. A lot of greens powders are filled with crap to be honest and sweetened with a blend of stevia and erythritol, the latter (erythritol) is something we are typically told to avoid on a gut healing protocol. This isn’t an issue with Melrose Essential Greens Powder because it only contains the GREENS!
Puffed Buckwheat – I purchase this from my favourite bulk wholefoods store in Newtown, Naked Foods. If you don’t have a access to puffed buckwheat, puffed brown rice tastes just as good and is available in most supermarkets. Be sure to buy PLAIN puffed brown rice with no other ingredients added. Leave out the puffs for a keto friendly smoothie recipe.
Organic Monk Fruit Extract – This is not your usual monk fruit sweetener. READ THAT AGAIN! This is PURE monk fruit extract which means you only need a tincey, tiny, wincey, wee, little bit to sweeten things up. 1/8 tsp to be exact. Yes, I use my 1/8 measuring spoon every day for this because that is all that is needed. If you are about to embark on a gut healing journey, you will need to sacrifice the usual erythritol containing sweeteners (ie Monk fruit you buy in the supermarket) but the good news is you can safely replace them with this life changing healthy sugar alternative. Shop Monk Fruit Extract here and save with code BLONDE10.
Filtered Water – We use our water filter religiously because the statistics on tap water are disgusting (literally). It’s estimated we would consume half a kilogram of plastic each year without using a water filter – SCANDALOUS! I bought our filter jug + a pack of 3 filter cartridges from Heppi and have never looked back. They are reasonably priced (free shipping yay) and even send you reminders when you need to change the filter which is fabulous because let’s be honest, who will ever remember to change it every 3 months?? NOT ME! Use code BLONDE for 10% off.
Reusable Glass Straw – Not an ingredient but key to making your smoothie look beautiful is a reusable glass straw from Seastraws. I buy all of my smoothie straws from this small Australian business. The owner is absolutely lovely and every purchase contributes to saving the Great Barrier Reef. Save 10% with code BLONDE.
- 30g walnuts
- 2-3 tsp unflavoured bone broth
- 2 tsp greens powder
- 1/2 cup puffed buckwheat or puffed brown rice (optional)
- 1 serve (30g) bovine collagen
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp pure monk fruit extract
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 6 large ice cubes
Blend it all up until smooth and enjoy. If there is anything gut healing protocol 2.0 has taught me, it is that we don’t need fruit in every single smoothie to have a good time!

On that note, my Nutribullet shat itself a couple of weeks ago, it was actually my second. I find they only have a 2 year lifespan if you use them every single day like me. Rather then go for round 3, I thought I would try something new and purchased a Ninja Foodi Power Nutri Duo from Catch and WOW this thing is powerful. It makes thick AF smoothie bowls and nice creams like a boss without signs of blowing up any time soon! I bought through Shopback for extra savings (cash back).
