Berry Bliss Gut Healer:


1 tablespoon Free Soul Vanilla Vegan Protein Blend

1 cup mixed berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)

1 small banana

1 tablespoon chia seeds

½ cup Greek yoghurt (or plant-based alternative)

1 cup coconut water

Why it's Great:

Loaded with antioxidants, berries are a powerful ally for your gut health. The fibre in chia seeds supports digestion, while Greek yogurt (or its vegan counterpart) provides probiotics that enhance your gut microbiome. Coconut water adds hydration and a touch of natural sweetness. This smoothie promotes a balanced gut and radiant skin, making it a perfect addition to your wellness routine.


Green Goddess Digestive Elixir:


1 teaspoon Free Soul Greens

1 cup spinach

½ cucumber

1 kiwi, peeled

1 small apple, cored

Juice of ½ lemon

1 teaspoon grated ginger

½ cup coconut water

Why it's Great:

Leafy greens like spinach offer a dose of fibre that aids digestion, while cucumber and kiwi contribute to hydration and support gut health. Apples contain pectin, a type of soluble fibre that helps maintain a healthy gut lining. Lemon juice and ginger provide a zesty kick, aiding digestion and boosting your metabolism. This green goddess elixir is your ticket to a happy gut and a radiant glow.

Tropical Gut-Loving Delight:


1 scoop Free Soul Vanilla Vegan Protein Blend

1 cup pineapple chunks

1 small mango, peeled and pitted

½ banana

1 tablespoon flaxseeds

½ cup kefir (or dairy-free alternative)

½ cup coconut milk

Why it's Great:

Tropical fruits like pineapple and mango are rich in enzymes that support digestion. The banana adds creaminess while flaxseeds offer a boost of omega-3 fatty acids and fibre. Kefir, a fermented dairy product, introduces beneficial bacteria to your gut, while coconut milk provides a luscious texture and hydrating benefits. Indulge in this tropical delight for a happy gut and a tropical glow.

Creamy Avocado Gut Rejuvenator:


1 teaspoon Free Soul Greens

½ ripe avocado

1 cup spinach

1 pear, cored

¼ cup mint leaves

1 cup almond milk (or plant-based milk)

1 tablespoon hemp seeds

Why it's Great:

Avocado is a superstar for both gut health and skin radiance. It's rich in monounsaturated fats and fibre that nourish your gut lining. Spinach provides additional fibre and antioxidants, while pears contribute hydration and natural sweetness. Mint leaves add a refreshing twist, and hemp seeds bring in plant-based protein and omega-3s. This creamy concoction is your go-to for a rejuvenated gut and a glowing complexion.

With benefits for gut health and skin radiance, these four smoothie recipes ensure your body is equipped with the nourishment it craves, with each sip a step toward a thriving gut and a radiant glow.
