The past few weeks I have been dealing with A LOT of nausea. My tummy has always been a mess but this extreme nausea is pretty new. Smoothies seem to be the calmest thing on my stomach and easy to digest so I’ve been making a lot of them. I have a favorite which I will share in a later post. For now, I want to share the smoothie I make when I’m nauseas but hungry and know I need to get some food in me. This smoothie includes fresh ginger which 1) is pretty much my favorite flavor ever, you all should know that by now and 2) is great for nausea and an upset stomach as it helps decrease in inflammation, relaxes the stomach muscles, and helps the neutralize stomach acid.
Tummy Calming Banana-Berry Ginger Smoothie
1 frozen banana
1/3 cup frozen raspberries
1 inch piece of peeled and grated ginger
1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup almond milk (you can use all coconut milk, I just prefer mixing the two)
1 handful spinach (optional but I like to add some greens to get my veggies in. Green veggies can also help detox out any toxins that may be contributing to nausea)
Throw everything in your blender and blend until smooth. Drink up and feel your nausea slowly dissipate.
