Cucumbers are known for their hydrating and alkalizing properties, while avocados provide healthy fats which are beneficial for gut health. Coconut yoghurt creates a creamy texture and is gentle on the stomach. Together, these ingredients create a soothing, nourishing blend that’s not only delicious but also promotes gut wellness.

Enjoy this gentle embrace for your digestive system. Every ingredient has been chosen to offer you both taste and therapeutic benefit. As you savour each spoonful, remember the adage: “Let food be thy medicine.”
