Banana Smoothie Recipe

Bananas are an excellent addition to any smoothie. Rather than using ice, freeze bananas before adding to smoothies. As a result, your smoothie will be the perfect texture and consistency. Ensure your bananas are very ripe before freezing. They should have a cheetah type of spotting on their skin. They are sweeter when ripened, and you will not need to add sugar to your smoothie.

Bananas are high in vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. Bananas are known for their ability to help regulate blood pressure. What a better way to add important nutrients to your diet than with a delicious, quick and easy banana smoothie!
