Whether you’re trying to eat more anti-inflammatory foods or are following a low FODMAP diet for irritable bowel syndrome, this refreshing smoothie is a great way to eat more leafy greens, boost your brain health, and get your glow on.

It’s easy to make this yummy anti-inflammatory low FODMAP smoothie packed with healthy ingredients! Here’s what you’ll need to make the perfect breakfast smoothie or a nourishing snack.

Anti-Inflammatory Low-FODMAP Smoothie Ingredients

  • Low FODMAP Milk. Lactose-free milk or any variety of low FODMAP non-dairy milk such as almond milk, macadamia milk, quinoa milk, rice milk, or soy milk made w/ soy protein extract instead of whole soybeans. (Note: I don’t suggest coconut milk in this recipe because it’s high FODMAP at the recommended portion size.)
  • Leafy Greens. I like this low FODMAP smoothie with kale, but it would be delicious with arugula, beet greens, collard greens, Swiss chard, or spinach.
  • Low-FODMAP Fruits. Make this with fresh orange and pineapple. You could also try it with a tangerine or kiwi fruit. Yum!
  • Ginger. Choose fresh ginger root or ground ginger powder.
  • Ice Cubes. To make your low FODMAP smoothie extra cold and frosty!
  • Optional Sweetener. When you use fresh juicy pineapple, no additional sweetener is needed. But, if you prefer your low FODMAP smoothie on the sweeter side, add a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
  • Optional Ingredients & Nutrition Boosters. Almond butter (1 tablespoon), Unripe banana (for a source of gut-friendly resistant starch), Chia Seeds, Hemp Seeds, Low FODMAP Protein Powder (see options below), Lactose-Free Yogurt, Lemon Juice, Orange, Lime, or Lemon Zest, Peanut Butter, Regular Girl Low FODMAP fiber, Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

It couldn’t be easier to make this low FODMAP-friendly smoothie recipe! Simply add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender, blend, pour into a glass, and enjoy!

  10. Rebecca Adrianna Livingstone says:

    1. The Spicy RD says:

  12. Cosette Karsmakers says:

    I loved the smoothie, as did my husband and son. Thanx for sharing the recipe.

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      So glad you and your family liked the smoothie Cosette! Thanks so much for letting me know πŸ™‚ Have a delicious weekend!

  13. Im up here in Eau Claire Wisconsin I know we dont have a Costco here but not saying there isnt one in MN which isnt to far away. Thanks again for all of the heads up with the protien and with Costco..

  14. I just stumbled on this site after typing in recipes for kale and ginger. I have a special needs child whom is quite chunky and I’ve been wanting to get ourselves started on a healthier diet with smoothies and such. I tried a protein sample package from our health food store and I brought it home and mixed it with Chocolate Almond milk, I had a hard time getting it down for it was gritty. I don’t own a blender and don’t know which kind to buy to assure I end up with a no pulp no gritty smoothies. Any suggestions so I can get going on some of these shared recipes that sound so delicious?

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Hi Carolyn! I own a Vitamix blender and I love it. It is pricey, but well worth the money, IMO, b/c all the other blenders I owned before would break down after one year. Have you tried whey protein? I find it to be very smooth in comparison to some of the vegan based protein powders. Hope this helps!

      1. Thanks for your reply Spicy, I was kind of looking at the Vitamix but I haven’t ever had a smoothie so I’m not sure if I’m going to actually even like them, I wonder if there is an actual local business that serves fresh fruit/veggie smoothies. Whey Protein is Dairy based and my daughter is Lactose Intolerant. UGHHH!!! Yes frustrating..

        1. The Spicy RD says:

          My pleasure Carolyn! One thought-some whey proteins, depending upon the amount of lactose, may be tolerated by lactose intolerant individuals, so you may want to check with manufacturers to see if they can tell you how much lactose is in the product. Also, another one to try is egg white protein {if your daughter can eat eggs}. I’m not sure where you live, but if you have a Costco near you, they sometimes do demos/taste testing with the Vitamix, so you can try before you buy πŸ™‚

  15. Auravie Reviews says:

    Why people still make use of to read news papers when in this technological
    world all is accessible on net?

  16. amy @ fearless homemaker says:

    I loooove smoothies so much, and this one sounds fantastic! Also, thanks for telling me about your PB+J smoothie on my blog – I so want to try that!

    1. PB&J Smoothie? My daughter loves her PB&J sandwiches and this would be a awesome start to get her going on smoothies. Could you share that recipe and also could you recommend an awesome blender for I want something that doesn’t leave pulp or grittiness behind in a smoothie.

  17. I have such a hard time with kale. I bet the addition of pineapple would make it taste better. πŸ™‚ LOL

  18. Viviane Bauquet Farre- Food and Style says:

    What a beautiful and creative recipe!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thank you so much Viviane! Enjoy πŸ™‚

  19. foodwanderings says:

    I have a confession EA, I am not a green smoothie, or any type of smoothie type, but I am coming around. How can I resist this green deliciousness?! You captured it so well. I love kale slightly braised but I bet I would love it here raw with the tangy pineapple. So healthy too!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Absolutely no need to confess Shulie πŸ™‚ I am a huge lover of green smoothies, but can understand how they might not be number one of everyone’s list. Braised kale? Delicious too!

  20. Sounds really tasty! I love ginger and here in Japan it ends up in a lot of stuff. But I never thought to do it with pineapple. Yum!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Oh, I imagine lots of delicious ginger being used in Japan, Melinda. Enjoy!

  21. kellie@foodtoglow says:

    I rudely popped a link to this refreshing recipe on my recent post, but didn’t let you know. Sorry! I loved the look and sound of this and wanted to share it on my otherwise quite ego-centric breakfast post. I really can’t wait to try this. My daughter used the last of the ginger so I will have to wait a day or two, but otherwise, I’m there!

    1. Thanks so much for sharing Kellie! I love your eggs and lentil recipe-divine!!

  22. teri@managedmacros says:

    I didn’t “miss” your posts b/c I have been missing in action myself! I understand the busy life! I am trying to make a return from my absence in blog land as we speak! I am excited about your website!! It is always fun to update!
    I LOVE kale and thanks to you, I eat a kale Caesar salad at least twice a week. It is the BEST!!

    1. I’m looking forward to the return of Managed Macros blog posts Teri!!!

  23. Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen says:

    Excellent! I can always go for a kale smoothie.

    1. Kale in anything is a favorite Sylvie πŸ™‚

  24. Regan @ The Professional Palate says:

    So many of my favorite fruits in one place πŸ™‚

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      MIne too Regan! Hope all is well πŸ™‚

  25. Kristen @ Swanky Dietitian says:

    This smoothie looks just delicious! So refreshing!!
    I am jealous you are growing kale. We will have to see how it does here in Vegas.

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks Kristen! Mind you my kale is pretty tiny now, but tastes great. Good luck πŸ™‚

  26. Andrea@WellnessNotes says:

    Your smoothie sounds good! Pineapple & kale is a nice combo!

    1. The Spicy RD says:

      Thanks Andrea! I usually do my standard kale, banana, cinnamon combo, but this was a delicious change, especially with the ginger. I hope you’re week is off to a fabulous start πŸ™‚
