Banana Smoothie Recipes
Bananas are the most popular fruit in the world, they outsell apples and oranges, and you can find them in markets from China to the United States, they are also usually available throughout the year when other fruits are not in season. Bananas are very high in potassium, an important nutrient for your body they also have lots of fibre and vitamins A, C, D and K. Because bananas also contain 3 basic natural sugars, glucose, fructose, and sucrose they are give you an energy boost when you eat them.
Bananas are known for their ability to calm an upset stomach, they also help to rehydrate your body which is why many athletes eat them and they are also great useful for lowering high blood. They also go well with everything from coffee, peanut butter, many different fruits, and just about anything you could possible think of adding into a blender to make a smoothie. When you add bananas to a smoothie they create a rich creamy texture that makes a smoothie taste great as well as give it a fantastic rich smooth texture that no other fruit can match.
You can prepare a simple banana smoothie in minutes blend everything together until smooth you should see the smoothie mixing from bottom to top without any chunks. Most banana smoothie recipes are very easy to make as the ingredients are simple and you probably have most if not all of them already. If you find that you are missing one or two ingredients you can just swap them for something else if you have it because bananas are so flexible that they go with just about any other fruit or you can easily get any missing ingredients at your local grocery store.
If you want to make your smoothie healthier then you can always add some yogurt. Yogurt is rich in calcium and if you choose low fat yogurt then you are not really adding any fat to your diet. There are lots of banana smoothie recipes with yogurt that you can choose from or experiment and make your own. Other ingredients that work well with banana other than yogurt are honey and probably my personal favourite is a strawberry banana smoothie recipe.
The best thing about a banana smoothie is that they contain three different types of sugar, so they provide a great energy boost to the start of your day; however, because they also contain a significant amount of fibre, the sugar is absorbed slowly and doesn't significantly raise blood sugar levels or lead to a crash. Do you need any more reasons to find a good banana smoothie recipe to start your morning off and have plenty of natural energy to get through the day.
