Take care of your 'second brain' with this gut-loving drink from registered Nutritional Practitioner and recipe developer Neleta Winter.
Apples are rich in pectin which is a soluble fibre. Pectin bypasses digestion in the small intestine and is then broken down by the friendly bacteria in your colon.
Papaya contains a digestive enzyme called papain, it helps the digestive process by helping break down protein fibres. Papain may also reduce symptoms of IBS as well as constipation and bloating.
1 tablespoon of Bare Biology's Pure Skinful Marine Collagen Powder
Rich in essential amino acids, collagen supports the health of the gut and can be beneficial to the intestinal tract.
1 tablespoon of almond butter
Almonds are loaded with fibre and can be beneficial for gut and digestive health.
1cm of fresh ginger
Ginger has active ingredients that help ease side effects of slow digestion, reduce nausea and improve overall digestion.
1. Cut the apple into cubes, removing the core and seeds (leaving the skin on).
2. Cut the papaya and remove the seeds.
3. Add the apple, papaya, almond butter, ginger and collagen to a blender along with the milk.
4. Blend until smooth (add more milk if you want the drink to have a thinner consistency) and enjoy!
