The Powerful Ingredients Involved
Our savory smoothies contain a powerful set of nutrient-rich ingredients, packing vitamins and minerals into every sip. First, blueberries are packed full of antioxidants, which can protect your body from disease-causing compounds and boost the immune system. Meanwhile, they also carry a significant amount of fiber and very few calories, so they’re a wonderful weight-loss food to add to your diet!
Then there are the bananas, which contribute to the smoothie’s sweet flavor and creamy, melt-in-your-mouth consistency. These scrumptious yellow fruits also aid in digestion and hook you up with lasting energy. Finally, this superfood contains a great source of potassium for heart health and manganese for your skin.
You’ll Get Your Greens with Each Sip!
Let’s not ignore our favorite leafy vegetable: spinach! You’ll barely taste the spinach in these tasty blueberry banana smoothies, but they pack a powerful nutrition punch! These magnificent greens contain folate and omega-3 fatty acids, along with energy-boosting iron.
Meanwhile, spinach is also an excellent source of chlorophyll and carotenoids. These compounds carry amazing anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties. Popeye certainly had it right by loading up on this powerhouse veggie!
Our Smoothies are Nutritious and Well-Balanced
When these potent superfoods team up with protein-rich tofu, it creates a superb smoothie! As an added bonus, this delicious drink clocks in at just 6 grams of fat with zero trans fats. That makes this blueberry banana smoothie recipe simple to make, ultra-delicious, and waistline-friendly. A triple threat!
