It is probably the best and quickest way to get you the required vitamins and to replenish energy during the day. Bananas and spinach contain a lot of fiber, which makes you feel full for a longer period. Also, it allows for consuming several servings of veggies and fruits at once.

It is also a superfood that is important to skin, hair, and bone health.  A smoothie made with banana, fruits, and spinach offers a number of health benefits, such as Vitamin K, Potassium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and many others.

Some of our favorite mixes are:

  • Blueberries – a good way to add some extra antioxidants.

  • Celery – perfect antioxidant. It is also loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin K.
  • Chia Seeds – one of the best sources of omega-3. They help raise HDL cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke. Similarly, it contains a good amount of fiber, iron, and calcium. Simply add a teaspoon of it to the mix and enjoy all the benefits that come with it!
