If you are looking for a way to spice up your green smoothies, why not consider trying recipes that contain banana? Bananas are an excellent source of both potassium and fiber, and they will give your smoothie the same thick, creamy consistency of a milkshake. Medical studies have also suggested that the regular consumption of bananas can lower both your blood pressure and cholesterol. Here is a great recipe for you to try now!
- 1 banana
- 2 tbs natural creamy peanut butter
- ½ cup blueberries
- 3-4 strawberries
- 2 cups fresh baby spinach (or other leafy green)
- ½ cup water
Each of these ingredients should be added to your blender one at a time and blended together until smooth. A single one of these recipes will yield roughly 3-4 cups of green smoothies, but if you need to make more, the recipe can easily be doubled. This smoothie is guaranteed to be a hit with your friends and family members.
A single cup of these green smoothies contains only 384 calories, which makes it a delicious and nutritious snack at any time. This smoothie is an excellent source of Vitamins A and C; however, if you would like to make it more nutritionally complete, then you can add a scoop of protein powder to the smoothie.
