Fresh, sweet, tart, colorful and light – no ingredients announce Spring like BERRIES! Blend them with a bit of fresh spinach, a banana, milk, yogurt and a dollop of nut butter, and you’ve created a delicious breakfast or snack that’s loaded with fiber and essential nutrients.
Unfortunately, many store or restaurant-bought smoothies contain excess amounts of added sugar and calories. Once you realize how easy, quick, and healthy it is to make at-home smoothies, they’ll surely become on-the-go staples in your kitchen. Especially during spring and summer when heating an oven or stove is just about the last thing you want to do. BONUS: making smoothies at home saves money and ensures that you know – and control – what ingredients go into your meal.
This Berry Banana Smoothie contains just six simple ingredients and takes less than five minutes to whip up. It contains 343 nutrient-dense calories, packs 12 grams of fiber (nearly half the Recommended Daily Allowance 😉 and a healthy balance of carbs, protein, and fat into 12-15 ounces of sheer goodness. It is ridiculously easy to make and costs less than $5.00 per person. Nutritiously delicious doesn’t get much better – or easier – than this, friend.
