ooh, i just read that papaya, melon and sweet potato (not for smoothie obviously) are really good for those with UC.
suppose to naturally help the inflammation and soothe!
i love smoothies and will try this out for sure.
i dont like yogurt or dairy in my smoothies tho. just fruit and sorbet.
i would be wary of any fruit with small seeds like old hat mentioned. ouch!
