This nutritious fall-inspired pumpkin pie smoothie is packed with protein and vitamin A.
It’s also low FODMAP if you’re temporarily eliminating FODMAPs to identify foods that are causing you digestive issues such as bloating, abdominal pain, etc. Pumpkin is low FODMAP if you ea ½ cup or less during a meal. Maple syrup is low in fructose and therefore it’s a low FODMAP sweetener. Ripe bananas are low FODMAP if you don’t eat more than ⅓ of a banana.
Adding collagen powder to your smoothie can also promote gut health. Collagen is abundant in glycine, glutamate, and proline, which are amino acids needed to keep your intestinal lining healthy. It’s also a great source of protein; 2 tablespoons of collagen powder give you 12 grams of protein.
