IBD Smoothie Recipes and Guide


Mango Lassi

Smoothies are easy to customize to your individual nutrition needs and personal preferences. They are a great way to get calories, protein, and nutrients into your diet, especially when you aren’t feeling well. We often think of smoothies as a breakfast option but, you can also try them as a snack between meals.

If you are losing weight and/or have a poor appetite, choosing high-calorie/high-fat options like whole milk for your liquid and/or full-fat Greek yogurt will be helpful for meeting your needs. If you follow a plant-based diet or don’t tolerate dairy, you can choose almond or soy milk as your liquid and tofu to increase protein content and thicken the smoothie.
When making a smoothie, choose fruits and flavours that appeal to you. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, try increasing the amount of fruit or juice, or add a small amount of jam, honey, or maple syrup. Scroll down for our smoothie recipes!
