Berry Banana Soy Milk Smoothie with Brewer’s Yeast


This berry-rich smoothie is an excellent source of potassium. Potassium helps to build muscles, helps muscle work properly and helps convert the food we eat into energy. It is particularly important when trying to achieve weight loss goals.

You may be looking at the recipe and wondering what is brewer’s yeast and why is it in a smoothie?

Brewer’s yeast, also used for making beer, has lots of protein and fiber so it can help you feel full for longer time, reducing the urge to eat for a longer time. It also has a high amount of chromium which keeps blood sugar levels stable and this helps prevent spikes in your blood sugar that can lead to overeating. And finally, brewer’s yeast has B-12 vitamins giving you an energy boost. It can be an effective tool while you are trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. If you don’t have brewer’s yeast you can buy online at Amazon: Brewer’s Yeast Powder
