Low

 

Trying to eat a low histamine diet can quickly become boring!  Here is a recipe for a smoothie bowl that I like as quick breakfast.  Somehow making the smoothie a little thicker and eating it with toppings makes it more satisfying – at least to me!

Take this ‘recipe’ just as inspiration and adjust it to fit the fruits and veggies that work best for you.  Cherries may bother some on a low histamine diet.  The do contain quercetin, which is supposed to help prevent histamine release, but some lists include cherries as being higher in histamine.

 

Smoothie Bowl

  • Mango
  • Apple
  • handful of frozen, organic cherries
  • Blackberries
  • Carrots

Blend in a good blender until the consistency of apple sauce.

Topping ideas:

  • granola (gluten free, no cinnamon)
  • blackberries or chopped mango
