Gut-Friendly Pumpkin Collagen Smoothie Bowl (Paleo, Dairy-Free)

Good morning lovelies! With fall in full swing, I felt like it was time for another pumpkin recipe with a healthy breakfast twist. Enter: these Pumpkin Collagen Smoothie Bowls, made with all-natural ingredients and date-sweetened for the ultimate healthy fall breakfast!

As I’ve been working on my own gut health I’ve been finding that I really prefer smoothie bowls to smoothies in a glass for a few reasons: 1)  these force you to really slow down and eat more mindfully instead of gulping down a drink, and 2) they encourage chewing which is essential for digestive enzyme production (yes, those fun toppings serve multiple purposes!) Of course, I still need to add supplements to this process to help aid in my gut health and help to me digest and absorb the nutrients in my food, which is why I rely on Silver Fern Brand supplements to keep my gut in tip-top shape.

Time For a Gut Check

Gut health has been a priority of mine for a few years now as I’ve worked through autoimmune symptoms and recovery from antibiotics and high-stress periods in my life. It’s just a fact that most other adults have also undergone years of stress and antibiotic use, so I’ve also tried to introduce you guys to as many gut-friendly recipes as I can so that we can all get our guts working the way they should. After all, the gut is the center of our immune systems, and we’re learning more and more each day how important it is to be equipped to deal with viruses and other health concerns. With the efforts to eat for gut health also comes the realization that we need to supplement our gut health as we get older to make up for the things that diet alone can’t do for us, which is why I love Silver Fern Brand so much!

A few months ago I told you guys how I’ve been supplementing with Digestive Enzymes to deal with chronic constipation and bloating. I also started using Silver Fern’s Probiotics each day to replenish the gut bacteria that I’ve been lacking. I had a gut test done last year that showed some major gaps in my gut flora that were contributing to my ongoing issues and I was immediately put on some very expensive probiotics that only made me feel worse. I had all but given up on probiotics when I found Silver Fern Brand and decided to give them a try, and I wish I had started taking them years ago! I noticed improvements within my first week on the probiotics.

Silver Fern’s Probiotics contain spore probiotics that can survive the acidic environment of our stomach, which was most likely the lacking element in the other brands I wasted money trying. As I’ve learned more about probiotics I’ve found that spore-based products are the way to go to ensure survivability, but this isn’t something you’ll find in most brands. Silver Fern’s Probiotics also contain effective, multifunctional strands of probiotics that our bodies actually need to help with things like digestion, immune health, cravings, motility, and more. SO many probiotics are full of cheap strands that are convenient for the manufacturers, and not strands that we actually need. Not only do Silver Fern’s Probiotics contain strands that help improve our gut bacteria, but they also fight off the bad bacteria that cause Candida Overgrowth and other issues, which always something I have on my radar when I’m choosing supplements.

Whether you struggle with gut issues disease or are looking for ways to improve your health, I highly recommend adding Silver Fern’s supplements to your routine. You can get 10% off of their supplements with code MORIAH10 here on the Silver Fern Site.

What you need to make healthy collagen smoothie bowls:

My favorite thing about these smoothies is how versatile they are. You can easily omit ginger or cinnamon if you don’t have them on hand, and you can change around the kind of milk or nut butter you add depending on your dietary preferences! Super easy peasy. Here’s the base of what you need, but feel free to customize it as you’d like and add whatever toppings your heart desires!

  • Frozen riced cauliflower – this helps thicken the smoothie without adding junk!
  • Coconut milk – or your milk of choice.
  • Pumpkin: These wouldn’t be pumpkin smoothies without pumpkin! Use pumpkin puree–NOT pie filling.
  • Unflavored collagen, to add protein, aid in gut health, and thicken the smoothie bowls.
  • Medjool dates: a healthy way to add sweetness with a side of potassium.
  • Honey – to add a bit of sweetness.
  • Nutmeg and Ginger: extra fall spices to add a boost of flavor.
  • Cinnamon: Pumpkin’s best friend!
  • Ice: Add more or less ice to alter the thickness of your smoothie
  • Coconut flakes, nuts, and figs for topping

These healthy ingredients combined with the power of Silver Fern Brand supplements will get you well on your way to balancing your gut health and feeling like the best version of you.
