Making a tropical, nutrient-dense smoothie is like making a life-long investment towards your overall well-being. Pineapple Banana Smoothie is high in protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and all in a glass of fabulously tropical sunshine with a refreshing and vivid tanginess.
Pineapple contains the large amounts of manganese and vitamin C as well as an enzyme bromelain and dietary fiber. Pineapple aids in improving digestion, treating colds and coughs, strengthening bones, losing weight, maintaining good eye and oral health, and boosting the immune system. A cup of pineapple contains only 82 calories but 131% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C and 10% of vitamin B6.
When it comes to nutrition, banana is jam-packed with vitamins and minerals. A single cup of banana supplies your body with 15% of the RDI of dietary fiber, 30% of vitamin B6, 10% of magnesium, and 21% of vitamin C. Plus, bananas are plentiful in riboflavin, niacin, folate, iron, manganese, calcium, and potassium. Bananas are increasingly popular among dieters since they promote weight loss and make a tasty, low-calorie snack.
Pineapple Banana Smoothie also includes 2 cups of baby spinach and they equal only 14 calories, zero fat, and plenty of nutrients and antioxidants. Spinach and banana is a win-win combo in smoothies, but if you’re anything like me and you crave something tropical at times, add some pineapples and coconut water instead of unsweetened nut milk.
Coconut water contains magnesium, vitamins A, B6, C, protein, dietary fiber, iron, and potassium. Avoid buying sweetened coconut water with additional flavors. If you’re not a big fan of coconut water’s taste, try swapping it for regular, filtered water.
I love this smoothie recipe because it’s amazingly delicious, easy to make, and it’s low in calories. Just a triple win, don’t you think?
I hope you liked this smoothie recipe.
