Biggest Loser Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Why Smoothies With Bananas Are Beneficial To Your Health

Bananas are not only delicious and convenient, they provide a wide range of health benefits that put them on the top of my grocery list.

Bananas are also a favorite ingredient for green smoothie recipes. They provide the perfect creamy smoothie base and their flavor complements a variety of fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, pears, apples, pineapple – really any fruit!

If you are thinking about trying a green smoothie for the first time, I recommend that you start by using bananas because they make a delicious smoothie and work well at masking the flavor of bitter, mineral rich greens such as spinach or kale.

If the taste alone isn’t enough motivation to eat a banana (or two) every day, how about the many health benefits!
