Featuring 10 banana based smoothie recipes hand-picked from the Green Blenders' compilation of 73 banana-friendly smoothies
Bananas are nutrition powerhouses
In addition to providing for the perfect texture of any smoothie and supporting those of us on set diets to either lose weight or gain weight, bananas are an excellent source of numerous amounts of healing nutrients like minerals (such as potassium, copper, selenium, magnesium, molybdenum and boron), vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and other phytonutrients. Bananas are also full of fiber, water and pulp, too, aiding us in suppressing and satisfying our appetites. And, as Anthony William of Medical Medium alludes to in his book Life-Changing Foods, bananas are one of Nature's gifts for our digestive system, even known to reverse bodily conditions like IBS, Crohn's Disease and Colitis. Whether eaten raw from the peel, blended up in a smoothie, chopped with your kale or what-have-you, enjoy your bananas and the healing powers they pass along with their pleasurably unique taste and conveniently soothing digestive benefits.
