Beat The Bloat Smoothie

Most of us have experienced bloating at some point. Bloating can be caused by eating too fast, constipation, foods that may cause gas (legumes, grains, dairy), and fluid retention from excess sodium. Today’s smoothie recipe will help with bloating in two ways.

  1. The ingredients are high in potassium which will help flush the excess sodium out of your system.
  2. The fiber content can help with constipation that may be causing bloating.

Now, let’s hop into this amazing recipe byΒ Pop Sugar!

  1. Perfect! I’m definitely going to try this! I never knew potassium helped with bloat. I drank coconut water yesterday and read that it has more potassium than bananas! Nice post!
