After years of abusing my body with over-exercise, learning to move for fun rather than aesthetics is healing my inner child.

When it comes to making smoothies, there’s a short list of usual suspects that tend to make their way into the blender: alt-milk, protein powder, spinach, berries, bananas. But Will Bulsiewicz, MD, a gastroenterologist and New York Times bestselling author of The Fiber Fueled Cookbook, has a favorite smoothie ingredient for gut health that’s a little more unexpected.

This gastroenterologist’s winner-winner ingredient for gut healthy bevs? Broccoli sprouts. You heard that right. “I am utterly obsessed with putting broccoli sprouts in my smoothie—it’s my secret weapon,” Dr. Bulsiewicz says. Although these mighty greens might not sound like the obvious smoothie-making choice (at least not in terms of flavor), the gut health experts reassures us that it’s well-worth a try. With the right blend of ingredients, all you’ll be reaping from the broccoli sprouts is the bevy of gut health benefits they have to offer (with no icky aftertaste). Ready to get blending?
