To say that our gut microbiome is the center of our universe – at least the center of each of our own individual little microcosms of a universe – is not wildly overstated. The past decade of research has found that our intestinal wellbeing – often referred to as our ‘gut health’ – impacts nearly every aspect of our whole-body wellbeing, from our mood to skin to our risk of heart disease and cancer.

Of course we love it when something healthful that we’re already doing can pull double duty with another wellness benefit. And such is the case with Smoothie King’s line of Gut Health smoothies.

Packed with prebiotics, fiber and 40 billion CFUs of probiotics, Smoothie King’s Gut Health smoothies serve our bodies well, whether we’re turning to them as a snack or a meal on the go.

Available in three varieties – Greek Yogurt Strawberry Blueberry, Greek Yogurt Pineapple Mango, and Papaya Mango Ginger – all can be made Eat Fit, too – simply sub fruit (papaya or blueberries) for the juice, and add unsweetened almond or coconut milk.

Added benefit: Smoothie King’s Gut Health enhancer blend can be added to any smoothie on the menu, including any of the 30+ Eat Fit blends at Smoothie King.
