This delicious banana boost smoothie will give you such a great start to the day. With the added almonds providing vitamin E and the bananas being a great source of calcium, this is a great instant energy booster. Plus it’s only 378 calories per serving!
The health benefits of smoothies are numerous. Not only are they a quick and easy way to get your essential vitamins and minerals from the added fruits, but also vital nutrients like antioxidants, folic acid and calcium to name but a few.
This banana boost smoothie is just one of so many tasty smoothie recipes that I love that will give you those health benefits.
I have this banana boost smoothie as a refreshing “pick me up” if I find my energy levels begin to drop during the day, because it’s so simple to make.
It’s certainly much better for me than reaching for a chocolate bar which is what I used to do before I started following the 80/20 rule for eating.
