*Notes and Helpful Tips:

  • Nancy’s yogurt is found in many co-op and natural food stores. Click here to find a store near you. Why Nancy’s? Because it has a specific probiotic strain shown to help with constipation, plus it does NOT have added sugar or other additives.
  • Green kiwi improves speed of transit through the gut, especially when consumed daily for 4 weeks or more. (2 kiwi per day)
  • Red dragonfruit speeds transit time AND feeds an important type of healthy gut bacteria called Akkermansia. Fresh dragonfruit may be used as well, but it is often expensive or difficult to find. Organic freeze-dried powder may be purchased from several online sources including Amazon. To learn more about this fruit, click here.
  • Ground Flax is well-tolerated by most people and is a research-backed fiber source helpful for constipation.
  • In general, eating fruit helps prevent constipation. If desired, add a little more sweetness to your smoothie with small amounts of fruit you have on hand. While fruit is a source of natural sugar, there is no added sugar in this recipe.
