Strawberry banana me

Friday, 23 January 2015




I'm sharing one of my favorite smoothie recipe of all time, mostly since this is what works for me best which consist of the simples flavors and ingredients. One serving of this never fails to get rid of my hunger after the gym or even as a breakfast smoothie. 

All you need : 1 medium banana, peeled | Half cup fresh or frozen strawberries | 1 T flax seeds | 1 or 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder | 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk | About 1 cup cold water (to fill line)

Instructions : Place everything into the Nutribullet or your smoothie blender and blend until smooth.


Not only is this simple to make but the ingredients, such as bananas, not only is it 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 smoothie recipes. They provide a wonderful, creamy smoothie base and their flavor complements a variety of fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, pears, apples, pineapple and more. 

A 12-ounce serving of strawberry banana smoothie contains 188 to 210 calories, putting it into the range of an ideal snack. The Diet Channel suggests limiting snack calories to 100 to 200 -- this amount gives you enough of a boost to take the edge off hunger until your next meal.

The fruit in a strawberry banana smoothie provides a range of nutritional benefits. Bananas supply fiber, which protects bowel health and helps regulate digestion. The amount of potassium in bananas also make them a good fruit to eat to decrease your risk of kidney stones. Strawberries promote good eyesight and decrease symptoms of arthritis, thanks to the high volume of antioxidants.
