Banana and Pineapple are a great combination of smoothie texture and powerful flavor. Try to use fresh pineapple, your tastebuds will thank you.
This is a simple and great tasting smoothie, great for any time of day, breakfast, an addition to lunch, a healthy midday snack or a pre-workout drink or even a post-workout smoothie. I really like the amount of nutrition just a few simple ingredients offers. This smoothie is low in calories and has less than one gram of fat, so if you’re dieting this is a great choice. The carbohydrates and protein offered would be a great pre-workout boost.
My favorite feature would be that it offers 132% of the RDA for Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a great immune booster and most people do not get enough in their daily diets. I also like the amount of protein and dietary fiber this smoothie has. You really do get a great bang for the calories and fat per serving, plus it’s filling and taste amazing. Just remember for a thicker smoothie without the watered down affect ice cubes have, make sure to freeze the fresh pineapple and banana the night before. Give this smoothie a try and let us know what you think!
