Mango Banana Smoothie Recipe

Mango Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to get fresh and nutritious foods that you would not normally eat. This mango banana smoothie is packed with ingredients that are good for digestive and gut health.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in this mango banana smoothie.


Bananas:


The good old banana contains many of the same nutrients as strawberries and kiwis. Bananas support a healthy digestive tract with proper elimination, good cardiovascular health, bone health, eye health, and help prevent cancer. They are rich in fiber, with 5.9 g per cup, which is 23 percent of the recommended daily value. Also, bananas are one of the best sources of potassium out there. Potassium is an electrolyte and is essential for muscle function. This mineral is important for the gut because it helps with smooth muscle function, which is essential for digestion.

Chia seeds:


Chia seeds add a nice texture to this smoothie and benefit the gut as well. One ounce of chia seeds contains 10.6 mg of dietary fiber, which is 42 percent of the recommended daily value.

Cinnamon:


Cinnamon may be effective in calming the stomach by breaking down excessive gas. It can help stimulate the digestive tract and inhibit the formation of excess gas in the stomach. It is also a good source of fiber.

Mangoes:


These tropical fruits are a great source of dietary fiber, with 3 g per cup, which is 12 percent of the recommended daily value. Dietary fiber helps keep bowel movements regular, helps maintain healthy gut bacteria and may help prevent or relieve digestive conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis, and gastroesophageal reflux disorder.
