Cleanse your digestive system and reduce histamines for gorgeous gut wellness with this refreshing smoothie, rich in plant-based sprout DAO. The pulverizing action of the blender releases the DAO, making it readily available. If you would like to grow your own sprouts, refer to ‘How to sprout pea shoots’ (p. 33) or ‘How to sprout mung beans’ (p. 34). If you have acne, psoriasis, rosacea or eczema add Skin Friend AM.
