Around here my Banana Bread was kind of a big deal. Whenever I used to make it, the family attacked it right when I took it out of the oven. Since going vegan and clean, though, all I have left are the fond memories of this sweet treat. This dessert depression ended today when I stepped into my smoothie lab and got crackin’. After experimenting some, I succeeded in capturing the true essence of Banana Bread in the form of a healthy shake.
But don’t get it twisted, this creamy, sweet and aromatic smoothie is actually preventive medicine in disguise 😎🌱💪🏼. It’s loaded with Potassium and Manganese which are beneficial to your heart, skin and bones. It’s a fantastic way to tame high blood pressure and cholesterol.
The spices not only add a decadent flavor profile to the smoothie but are rich in antioxidant compounds which help make this a free-radical fighter, anti-inflammatory and digestive aid. Not to mention, plenty of fiber and plant-based protein to boot! How does it taste? pfffffttttt….AMAZING!!!!
