flat belly smoothie

Ginger and papaya are some of the best digestive supports out there. This simple gut-healthy smoothie comes from NYC-based dietitian and founder of Real Nutrition, Amy Shapiro. Belly-flattening ingredients like fresh mint leaves, coconut water and lime make this recipe taste more like a beach cocktail than anything else — which is why we love it.

We frequently opt for fruitless smoothies to keep our daily sugar intake low, but this papaya-packed blend is perfect for hot summer days at home. Raw, mineral-rich and refreshing, we plan on sipping this belly-soothing smoothie whenever the temperature spikes.

Serves 1


1 cup coconut water
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen papaya
1 Tbsp coconut butter or oil
1-inch knob of ginger
juice from 1/2 a lime
garnish with fresh mint as desired


Blend, garnish and enjoy!
