OK, so back to this smoothie.

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post on The Best Healthy Sugar Alternatives + Substitutes, bananas are a great source of natural sweetness without the need for added sugar.

Benefits of Banana?!

Whelp, did you know that Bananas are the most consumed fruit in the world? Yup. That’s right. We all eat them. And we eat them A LOT!

But, the most important part of it all is that Bananas come with great health benefits.

They are high in Potassium and Fiber.

They help to prevent against asthma, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and more.

When it comes to digestive issues, bananas, like apple sauce are often the go-to for treating certain upsets, including diarrhea. It’s actually apart of the BRAT diet.

Lastly, Bananas actually contain a type of amino acid that that plays a role in preserving memory and boosting your mood, according to specific studies. That’s right. Bananas are well rounded in their benefits for our health.

Tips & Tricks

STORAGE: Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, tightly sealed or in a covered mason jar, ensuring that you drink it within the same day for best taste and consistency.
NUT BUTTER: If preferred, you can always substitute peanut butter with Almond butter, SunButter (perfect for allergy-free needs!), Tahini (Sesame Seed Butter), Hazelnut Butter, etc.
SWEETENER: Instead of using maple syrup or Agave, you can ensure that Bananas are well ripened to create more of a sweetness.
TURMERIC: While adding turmeric is optional, it definitely has benefits: powerful medicinal properties, natural anti-inflammatory ingredient, increases antioxidant activity in the body, and more.
FROZEN BANANAS: After peeling + slicing bananas, be sure to store them in a freezer-friendly zip loc or container and freeze for about 2-3 hours (minimum); the longer the better.
