This Low FODMAP Mocha Smoothie Bowl is my favorite smoothie bowl at the moment. Chocolate and coffee are just a match made in heaven, am I right? Well, this smoothie bowl sure tastes heavenly!
Lately, I’ve been adding Holigos Maintain in my smoothies and soups and I’ve never felt better. I honestly can’t be happier that I’ve come across it. My digestion has been great and my occasional bloating has calmed down.
What is Holigos Maintain?
Maintain is a dietary supplement that can help support a healthy gut microbiome*. Unlike probiotics that introduce foreign bacteria to your gut, Maintain selectively nourishes your existing good bacteria to fortify your intestinal wall and help keep your immune system in balance*. How amazing is that? Holigos is a Danish brand behind Maintain. And I’m so pleasantly surprised and happy with their innovative approach.
Maintain is FODMAP friendly, used safely by many people who are lactose-intolerant, and free from gluten, soy, added sugar, artificial dyes, and active yeast. Maintain comes in a powder form and doesn’t have any taste or odor so it’s great for adding it in soups, but also smoothies and other hot or cold drinks I love it so much, it’s all I’m talking about these days!

To find the exact amount of the ingredients and step-by-step instructions, scroll at the end of this page.
*Use common bananas, not sugar bananas. Use firm bananas (green to just yellow), very ripe bananas are high FODMAP.
*If you are using non-dairy milk. Stay away from high fodmap milk like Oat or Soy (made from the soybeans) milk. Soy milk made from soy protein is low fodmap. So make sure you check the labels. Low FODMAP dairy-free milk is almond milk, rice milk, quinoa milk.
*As a general rule always read the labels of the ingredients that you use as there can be sneaky FODMAP’s in any product. The best place to find all the info on which foods are high in FODMAP’s is Monash Unversity FODMAP Diet App
