Chai tea is high-FODMAP but I’ve created the essence of chai with the right combination of spice and sweetness in my Low FODMAP Chai Smoothie. This smoothie is delicious for anyone who appreciates the taste of chai and also loves warm spices. Have this smoothie for breakfast or as a late morning snack.
Along with my low FODMAP Chai smoothie recipe, I also used a medical, non-prescription product called Holigos® IBS Restore. This product comes in powder form and can be added to any hot or cold meal or beverage.
I have been using Holigos for over a month now. You can learn more about my journey if you are a subscriber to my newsletter or follow along on Instagram (see below).
Here are the past blog posts so you can also read more about how Holigos® IBS Restore has positively impacted my gut health (and my peace of mind!). How Holigos IBS Restore Helped My Symptoms My Experience with Holigos IBS Restore, Diary Two.
In a nutshell, Holigos® IBS Restore is a prebiotic and proven to help with symptoms of IBS.
My Gut Was in Trouble
From 2018 and 2019, my gut was very out of whack. I had a long stint of being sick and pregnant, being exhausted, and having way too many things going on, including my family moving twice in seven months. Now that I have been able to take care of myself again, Holigos® IBS Restore has had my back and improved my gut health.
I want to show you how easy it is to use Holigos® IBS Restore in a nutritious and fun way, every day. Here is one recipe I really enjoy. The original recipe is featured in my book, The 30 Minute Low FODMAP Cookbook. The only change is I’ve added Holigos® IBS Restore:
