Banana Pineapple Smoothie Recipe with Almond Milk

6

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!

    If I add some whey protein to it the mix I think it will make a delicious post-ride recovery drink. I’ll let you know.

    Why not just leave the honey out (it’s already sweet enough) and instead of using a non-fat yoghurt (which is loaded with sugar) use one that contains fat but no added sugar?
