Here’s how to make a delicious and nourishing breakfast – a banana spinach smoothie.
I LOVE this smoothie.
It’s so simple, yet there’s something so satisfying about it.
I drink this spinach smoothie often in the winter. There is no frozen fruit, so it’s room temperature. No chattering teeth!
Nourishing Banana Spinach Smoothie
The combination of dates and coconut water with the bananas and spinach is truly delicious.
It’s also pretty calorie-dense, so it’s a great breakfast, snack, or lunch. You won’t be hungry a few minutes later.
- 2-3 medium bananas
- 4 cups spinach
- 2-3 large Medjool dates (or any kind of dates)
- 1 cup coconut water or filtered water
- 1 squeeze lime (optional)
Benefits the Smoothie
Bananas are great for a sensitive digestive system. They are also critical on a high-raw diet because they one of the more calorie-dense fruits.
Bananas are rich in fiber and good healthy carbohydrates. Their fiber helps cleanse the digestive tract, by binding toxins, pulling them out of the body.
This is also a great way to get more greens into your diet. Blending spinach is a fantastic way to get more quantity in. You could also substitute other leafy greens.
Leafy greens are amazing for our digestive systems, as they clear away problematic things (such as bad bacteria) in our intestines. Leafy greens are also packed with mineral salts that are critical for our wellbeing.
