Simple Banana Smoothie
I heart bananas. Love them.
Banana shakes, banana muffins, banana bread. Bananas with chocolate, bananas in baking or breakfasts like Chocolate Chocolate waffles (yeah, even those can have bananas). I mean, what’s not to love about bananas.
What’s even more, I simply love a really easy smoothie recipe. Get out your blender and let’s get blending with this easy 3-ingredient smoothie recipe. (And can I just tell you how much I love blending with the Ninja Professional Blender? It’s amazing!).
For some reason, I used to tend to over-think smoothies. I would put in way too many ingredients and that just doesn’t work. For a smoothie, simple is where it is at. Just a few ingredients that compliment each other, don’t try to compete with each other, and are so smooth when blended together. Smoothie perfection.
Banana Foot Cramp Cure
Ever have a nasty foot cramp? I used to have them all the time when I was pregnant, and my mother-in-law told me to eat a banana every day because of the potassium. It really does work. Kinda like an apple a day, except in this case its a banana.
Even if you’re not suffering from a foot cramp, a banana smoothie on a hot day is just right. Not a banana-lover? Swap out the banana for some strawberries, peaches, or some other fruit or berry. Add in a little flax seed for an extra health kick.
Now, you could make this in a regular old blender… or, you could prepare this in a Mason jar. It’s really quite simple.
Are you kidding me? (Kinda like those Mason jar salads)
So seriously. Go, check it out! Really. Because it makes preparing a smoothie at breakfast or for an after school snack super fast and super easy. And who doesn’t want to get a little more of a healthy boost to their morning? I know I do!
