No-banana green smoothie recipe

No-banana green smoothie

 

Because not everyone likes the taste of banana, which often forms the base of (green) smoothies, I’m sharing one of our favorite banana-free green smoothie.

It’s made with one fruit only, two veggies, and a few protein sources to maintain your blood sugar stable.

Because the downside of smoothies, and certainly of store-bought smoothies, is they often contain tons of fruit turning your breakfast or snack into a real sugar-bomb. Even the vitamins provided by those fruits don’t outplay the damage caused by regular consumption of high-fructose smoothies.

Always keep in mind that:

  • Smoothies should contain at least as much veggies as fruit
  • It’s important to add a few fat- and protein sources to balance the effect of the sugar on your glucose level

With those rules in mind, having a green smoothie a day, can certainly keep the doctor away ;-).
