STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE RECIPE

Whenever I finish doing body workout, I like to have a full-glass of smoothie, like this mango blueberry smoothie, or this strawberry smoothie. Both are super healthy and handy to be prepared on the go. Luckily yesterday I got some beautiful strawberries at a bargain price. I especially love the vibrant red color of this smoothie, delightful and refreshing. If fresh strawberries are not available for you, you can use frozen ones instead. The taste is equally good.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF STRAWBERRIES?


If you didn’t know it already, strawberries are a cholesterol free, fat-free, sodium free, low-calorie fruit. Strawberries also contain a lot of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and a ton of other vitamins and minerals. Strawberries are loaded with potassium so if you ever get a leg cramp, try eating some strawberries!

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF BANANAS?


Bananas are a great after workout snack due to the high amount of magnesium they contain. They help to build the lean muscle you’re trying to accomplish by working out. Bananas also contain plenty of vitamins.

I sometimes like to mix up my strawberry banana smoothie by adding an extra boost of nutrition. A few things I use are protein powder, flax seed, chia seeds, greens, or more berries such as raspberries. No matter how you customize it, you’ll love this smoothie. I know I sure did!
