One of the best parts of being a writer and photographer, and smoothie maker, is that I can share my favorite recipes with you! All spring and summer long, I played with the flavors of the season and really got good at strawberry smoothies, blueberry smoothies, banana smoothies, and even green smoothies! I’ve learned about using ice, fresh vs. frozen fruits, the different kinds of milk and how they taste in smoothies, as well as using yogurt, one of those many milks, water, etc. One thing I love is to use easy-on-the-stomach ingredients to make my recipes a morning win. And I also love to work with the flavors of the season. Now that we’re working with late summer and fall, I’m all about raspberries and pomegranate seeds. So delicious!
Let’s talk about Boiron!
I’ve been proud to be partnering with Boiron® for 2019! Boiron was founded by pharmacists in 1932 and is the world leader in homeopathic medicines – priding themselves on using earth-sourced active ingredients to restore balance in the body, and to relieve symptoms. We always keep Boiron Acidil® and Gasalia® at home. This is because Boiron has the solution to many common ailments, while using pure, earth-sourced, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients.
We also use Acidil and Gasalia on the go. Acidil is for indigestion and heartburn, and is the #1 selling homeopathic medicine for indigestion and heartburn in natural health food stores, and available at Walmart. It temporarily relieves occasional heartburn, acid indigestion, bloating, or upset stomach, by targeting the three main components of acid indigestion: heartburn, stomach pain, and bloating.* They are quick-dissolving, unflavored tablets that melt under your tongue!
Gasalia temporarily relieves bloating, pressure, discomfort and pain associated with gas*, and also comes in quick-dissolving, unflavored tablets. With both, there are no restrictions on when you can take them. There are no known drug interactions, and they will not slow down the absorption of other medications or micronutrients. Also, it has no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
Pomegranate Smoothie Bowl:

1 cup pomegranate seeds
1 cup raspberries
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
Fresh pomegranate seeds
What You Do:
- First, combine all the smoothie ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender and then blend until it’s smooth and creamy.

Lastly, make sure to enjoy immediately – it’s best when fresh!
These homeopathic medicines are a better choice for digestive issues. And it’s great that we’re now talking about these issues and that they’re no longer considered embarrassing or a problem only for older people. I love that these medicines have a “gentle action” on the body. And of course I love making these awesome smoothie bowls, and you will too!
