Have you ever tried our green smoothie for banana lovers? I’m completely obsessed. It’s become one of my favorites, and the fact that my kids enjoy sipping on the leftovers leaves me happy knowing that my family’s health is in good hands. Bananas make an excellent base for a smoothie since they’re an excellent source of essential nutrients, potassium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, and have been shown to benefit digestion, heart health, and weight loss. (1) Potassium is a mineral that helps maintain heart health, especially blood pressure control. The starchy texture also helps soak up all of the flavors in the smoothie, creating a well-balanced mix of fruit, greens, and ice.
Feel Fuller for Longer
This green smoothie is the highlight of my morning between the studio and the gym. It keeps me going through that mid-day slump too, making sure I’m up to any challenge that is put in front of me. Just make sure you have a blender in your kitchen that you can rely on. I’ve made that mistake before.
To create this green smoothie, begin by gathering all the ingredients you’ll need from the freezer, fridge, and pantry. This recipe needs spinach, mango, pineapple, frozen banana, and ice. There’s not much to it, so just add the ingredients to your blender with some ice and blitz it to the desired texture.
This delicious green smoothie nourishes your body with essential antioxidants and other nutrients that you need to improve your health. Spinach is a well-known superfood but is less known for its high-protein benefits. Increased consumption of fresh vegetables that are high in polyphenols like spinach has been associated with a reduced risk of oxidative stress-induced diseases. (2) You can hardly taste any spinach in this smoothie, and it’s pretty sweet on its own. However, I find that using very ripe fruits helps make this even sweeter if you’re going for more of a dessert vibe. Highly recommended!
