What I like the most about smoothies is that I need at least two kinds of fruit (in our case blueberries and bananas) and some ice. The simplicity of any smoothie recipe is great, and the health benefits are great and vast. In this recipe, I also used organic apple juice, but you can use any other fruit juice, along with almond milk, almond butter, and hemp seeds. The Blueberry-Banana Smoothie is great due to its nutritious benefits, has a great design due to its blue color, and most of all, it is very easy to make!
Yes, it’s not a myth. The combo from blueberries and banana is a great way to lose weight and get slimmer in just two weeks. The most important thing these fruits do is both make you feel full all the time. After drinking a Blueberry-Banana Smoothie you’ll eat less, much less, and in no more than two weeks you’ll lose several pounds. But be aware, the smoothie makes you feel full but doesn’t need to replace all your food. Make this smoothie only to reduce the food quantity of daily meals.
As per driscolls.com regarding the weight-loss with blueberries, they say that “recent study findings suggest that blueberries may influence genes which regulate fat-burning and storage, helping reduce abdominal fat and lower cholesterol. When combined with a low-fat diet, blueberries might also lower triglycerides and improve blood sugar levels, each benefits of a comprehensive weight loss plan“.
By adding blueberries in your diet (daily) will have a significant impact on cardiovascular health, cancer prevention, and brainpower. In addition to polyphenols, blueberries are an excellent source of vitamins K and C, manganese, and fiber. There are a lot of reasons to eat blueberries every day and also add these fruits to your diet. Bananas, on the other hand, have Potassium, Vitamin C, B6, Magnesium, Copper, Manganese, rich in fiber and antioxidants, rich in pectin (help moderate blood sugar levels), improve digestive health, aid weight loss, supports heart health, contains powerful antioxidants, improve insulin sensitivity, and improve kidney health.
Another great thing about blueberry and banana smoothie is that it fills you back with energy if you’ll drink it after exercise, or give you a lot of energy if drunk before. If you do workouts or yoga in the morning before breakfast, I recommend you to drink it before starting (with at least one hour before). This way you’ll have full energy to start your day.
Blueberries have a gentle, slightly tart, and sweet fruity flavor and Bananas have a natural sweetness and when blended, they have a creamy texture and taste. By blending the two fruits you’ll obtain a tart-fruity and creamy taste. Therefore, blueberries and bananas are great in the same bowl or glass. Regarding the texture, the Blueberry-Banana Smoothie has a blue-purple creamy texture, and the consistency can vary on the quantity of ice and banana used.
