Bone Broth is definitely en-vogue right now (thankfully), but truly, this is just the wisdom of the past showing us who’s boss.  Our Ancestors knew what they were doing by using broth as a major source of nutrition + healing…. um, for centuries.

The Gut Lab Beauties make the most delicious broth I’ve honestly ever had – they have completely knocked “chicken stock” out of the park using bones from Sunworks Farms – one of my favourite farms in Alberta (Certified Organic / Certified Humane / Certified Integrity – ok, I made that one up), and by maintaining traditional preparation methods that ensure you’re drinking nothing shy of Liquid Gold.

Just like the Good ‘Ol Days.

This Smoothie Recipe was thoughtfully developed by my friends at The Gut Lab, to support the most beautiful insides around.  Otherwise known as THE GUT.

For Babies:  This smoothie would be best from 7 or 8+ months onwards if you felt your Little could health-fully digest the listed ingredients.

General note for all, especially babies:  Kombucha and Kefir are high in beneficial bacteria for our gut, however if you are new to fermented foods like this, there can be an adjustment period for our digestive system when these are introduced.  Ease into these foods slowly, working your way up to the above noted dosage.
