Here’s why we’re ape about Bananas

Bananas are an excellent fiber source and contain high levels of potassium, vitamin C, and magnesium. Bananas also contain vitamin B6, which promotes cognitive function and a healthy immune system, along with many other essential nutrients critical to supporting brain, blood, and muscle function. 

Nicole Steadman, Registered Dietitian, answers your burning questions about the world’s most unsuspecting berry - bananas!

Together, we have created 3 smoothie options to fuel your busy days. All the recipes are packed with nutrients and kid-friendly because, let’s face it, we all want something yummy. 

We recommend all recipes should be eaten right after preparing to ensure freshness. If you are storing prepped smoothies in the refrigerator, we recommend storing them for no longer than two days. 

All recipes have the option to be made vegan and are balanced to ensure there are no energy crashes in your day when also paired with a balanced diet.

This is your blueprint! Feel free to add to our suggested base and tag us on Instagram for a chance to be featured! 

High Fat: Banana, peanut butter, & avocado smoothie -  for your busy mornings! 

 

Makes 2 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 overripe frozen bananas

  • 1 ¾ cups of your milk of choice 

  • 3 tablespoons of unsweetened peanut butter 

  • ½ ripe avocado 

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds 

  • 4 pitted dates

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder 

Dietary fats take time to digest and can keep you fuller longer as you plow through that morning routine! 

High Carb: Banana, oatmeal, and sweet potato smoothie - for an energy-boosting mid-day snack!  

Makes 2 servings 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 overripe frozen banana 

  • 1 peeled and boiled sweet potato

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened yogurt of your choice 

  • 1 cup milk of choice

  • 4 pitted dates

  • 1 pinch of pumpkin pie spice to taste 

Simple carbs like bananas are fast-acting. When we exert energy, our bodies are burning sugars from our blood and converting them into the energy we need to get through our day! 

It’s best to have smoothies like these earlier in the day to maximize the benefits for your most energized self! 

High Protein: Banana and vanilla protein-packed smoothie - great for any time of the day you want to get some extra protein in! 

Dairy milk, soy milk, and Greek yogurt are superior protein sources to vegan milk alternatives. Adding silken tofu to your smoothie is a great vegan-friendly option to adding protein and that creamy consistency! 

Makes 2 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 overripe frozen banana

  • ½ cup plain, unsweetened full-fat yogurt of your choice 

  • 1 cup milk of choice 

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 serving of vanilla protein powder of your choice 

  • 1 tablespoon raw shelled hemp seeds

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond butter of your choice 

  • 4 pitted dates 

  • 1 pinch of cinnamon to taste 

Most athletes require more protein than the average person, with competitive athletes requiring nearly double the recommended intake for the general population. See your doctor or dietitian for individualized advice based on your activity levels.
