Turkish Delight Smoothie

The Food Matters Team THE FOOD MATTERS TEAM

Tastes like Turkish delight but with the health benefits of slippery elm to help your digestive system.

S lippery elm has a therapeutic action that is very much as the name suggests - it coats the lining of your stool and makes it ‘slippery’, which can be an excellent antidote to constipation. As with any supplements, start with a small dose and build slowly the recommended amount that is specified on the packaging.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp slippery elm powder (start with 1 tsp and build up slowly if you are new to using slippery elm)
  • 1 frozen banana (peeled)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tsp cacao nibs
  • 1 spoon honey, or to taste
  • Dash of rosewater essence (this makes the smoothie taste like chocolate Turkish Delight)

Method

  1. Blend all ingredients together and enjoy!
