SPINACH BANANA AND YOGURT SMOOTHIE RECIPE

SPINACH BANANA AND YOGURT SMOOTHIE


Delicious and healthy! The whole family loved it. It turned out quite green but I told my little boys that we were drinking Incredible Hulk Smoothies and they thought they were great!

I recently lost 40 pounds at Weight Watchers! While there, two women were bragging about a smoothie that they had made, tried, and love. Even the meeting leader was hesitant- because the recipe sounds horrible! But I tried it and fell in love. I hope you have the courage to try this out- please let me know what you think!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF SPINACH BANANA AND YOGURT SMOOTHIE


Bananas and spinach contain a lot of fiber. My favorite feature of fiber-rich food is that it makes you feel full for longer. You won’t get so hungry so quickly again, which helps you to snack less on whatever it was you promised you wouldn’t.

The smoothie is also great for a workout. With the 16g of proteins from the spinach and peanut butter, an 80kg (176lbs) person already takes in more than 20% of the daily recommendation – essential for keeping fit and strong.

To top it all of you get a load of iron and potassium. Potassium helps the fight against increased blood pressure and stops muscle weakness and iron keeps you vital.


SPINACH BANANA AND YOGURT SMOOTHIE RECIPE


A green spinach banana super smoothie is, however, a quick (just three minutes) way to get a decent breakfast or to charge you up after a workout. I know, drinking something green feels wrong. But it’s oh so right.
