Recently, I wrote all about the importance of our gastrointestinal’s well-being in a post titled, “Why You Need To Know About Gut Health.”  (If you missed it, you can read that oh-so info packed article right HERE!) I love these Happy Gut Shakes so much that I make them in our home regularly lately. They keep us feeling great, healthy and energized.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • Made with tons of gut-boosting ingredients, this shake is just what you need to reset any stomach issues and improve your microflora.
  • Although the list of ingredients sounds long and involved, it’s totally worth it and makes for a super flavorful and filling snack. I have never met a person who doesn’t love this shake.

Why is it called a Happy Gut Shake?

  • These amazing shakes are loaded with ingredients that contribute to happy and healthy digestive systems. In particular, the cucumber, greens, cinnamon, parsley, ginger, apple cider vinegar, and glutamine powder are especially good for your stomach.

Top Tips for Making my Happy Gut Shake:

  • This shake is best enjoyed right away, but it will keep in the fridge for about three days.
  • If you don’t want to use or don’t have protein powder, feel free to leave it out. Keep in mind you may want to add some sweetener of some sort if you do leave it out. Pitted dates, monk fruit and maple syrup are all good choices.
  • Easily double this recipe if you’ve like to make a couple of servings at once.
  • Turn this shake into a more frozen type treat by simply adding more ice.

Hi Audrey!

Thanks for this yummy and healthy gut recipe!

We eat a lot of kale in soups and salads in our house, but I recently had a DEXA Scan where it was discovered that I have significant osteoporosis-osteopenia. I desperately want to avoid taking medicine, as my doctor wants me to take Fosomax, so was wondering if you could recommend a supremely good calcium supplement? Maybe bone strengthening exercises? I’m going to be a Grandmother soon, and want to make sure I’m around to care for my grandchild as well as my mom who lives with us and has dementia.

We plan on moving to Las Vegas, where our son and daughter in law live later this year, as the weather is much better and most importantly care for our new grandson!

Life has been pretty stressful to say the least… I dearly appreciate your feedback.

Thanks again,
Janice
