Green Smoothie Recipes With Banana
Bananas are one of the most popular ingredients that you can use in Green Smoothie Recipes. They make an excellent base, and they provide green smoothie recipes with a rich, creamy texture that is similar to that of a milkshake. However, bananas are an excellent source of many nutritional benefits.
Did you know that when you include bananas in your green smoothie recipes you are providing your body with a great source of potassium, fiber, Vitamins B6 and C, and multiple antioxidants? There are also multiple medical studies that suggest bananas may decrease your risk of developing pancreatic cancer and prevent the development of high blood pressure. With all of these health benefits, why would you not want to include bananas in your green smoothies?
2 tbs natural creamy peanut butter
½ cup blueberries or 3-4 strawberries
2 cups fresh baby spinach (or other leafy green)
½ cup of purified water
(OPTIONAL) 1 scoop protein powder*
Each of these ingredients should be added to your blender one at a time and blended together until smooth. This smoothie makes a great mid-morning or midafternoon snack, but these green smoothie recipes can also be enjoyed at any time of the day!
