A Moringatein Smoothie Recipe With A Pineapple Punch
Pineapples are an especially popular tropical fruit, second only to bananas. They are a low calorie fruit packed full of great nutrition. They are naturally very high in vitamin C, manganese and copper and also contain vitamins B1 and B6, folate, pantothenic acid and they are a great source of fiber. They happen to be in season now, so it’s a great time to make a delicious smoothie with them! They are an exceptionally juicy fruit and have a vibrant tropical taste that beautifully blends sweetness with a tart twist.
Bananas are a big fruit favorite, and they are especially popular for adding to a protein smoothie because they are loaded with nutritional goodness! They have tryptophan in them, which is an amino acid that converts to seratonin, a natural mood enhancer and they are a great source of fiber. They are well known for the high amount of potassium they contain. They also have healthy levels of vitamin C and B6, folate, manganese and magnesium. They are a natural antacid and contain virtually no fat. Bananas have a delicious flavor to them and will add a sweetness to your smoothie naturally. If you freeze them first, they will add a milkshake-like quality when you blend them in. You can’t go wrong with adding a banana to a protein smoothie for amazing nutrition!
