【HEALTHY GUT RECIPE】Postbiotic Tropical Green Smoothie

3 min readMar 19, 2024

Today, we’re blending up a nutrient-packed Postbiotic Tropical Green Smoothie that not only tastes delicious but also supports your gut health. Before we dive into the recipe, let’s talk about the ingredients.


Spinach is a leafy green vegetable rich in fiber, which is essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system. Fiber helps promote regular bowel movements, prevents constipation, and supports the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Spinach also contains antioxidants and phytonutrients that help reduce inflammation and support overall gut health.


Bananas are a good source of prebiotics. Prebiotics are a type of fiber and sugar that feed the beneficial bacteria in the gut, helping them thrive and multiply. Additionally, bananas contain potassium, which can help regulate fluid balance in the gut and support healthy digestion.

Almond Butter

Almond butter provides healthy fats and protein, which can help promote satiety and stabilize blood sugar levels. It also contains fiber and vitamins that support overall digestive health. Additionally, almonds are a source of vitamin E and magnesium, which have anti-inflammatory properties that may benefit gut health.


Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits. Bromelain helps break down proteins in the digestive tract, making it easier for the body to absorb nutrients and reducing the risk of digestive discomfort. Pineapple also contains fiber and vitamin C, which support gut health and immune function.


R’s KOSO is a Japanese probiotic drink made from more than 100 kinds of fermented fruits, vegetables, grains, mushrooms, and seaweed. Fermented foods are rich in beneficial probiotics, which are live microorganisms that promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria. Consuming probiotics can help improve digestion, boost immunity, and reduce inflammation in the gut.

Additionally, R’s KOSO contains postbiotics, which are byproducts of fermentation that provide additional health benefits, such as improved gut barrier function and enhanced nutrient absorption. Eating probiotics and prebiotics-rich foods also helps beneficial bacteria in our gut to produce more postbiotics.

This Postbiotic Tropical Green Smoothie is not only refreshing but also packed with nutrients to fuel your day. The sweetness of the pineapple balances perfectly with the earthy spinach flavor. And don’t forget about the gut-loving benefits of R’s KOSO, spinach, banana, and pineapple.

Cheers to good health and great taste! Give this Postbiotic Tropical Green Smoothie a try and let us know what you think.
