What Makes This Smoothie So Healthy?
Flavorful, creamy and full of heart healthy potassium, bananas are also rich in fiber and antioxidants. This makes them an essential base for any smoothie. If the bananas at your supermarket are not yet ripe you can still throw them in. Green bananas are a great source of resistant starch which helps you feel more full and they may even improve insulin sensitivity.
Low-fat yogurt is not only low in calories, it also contains protein, calcium and potassium. These ingredients promote everything from bone and heart health to muscle function. Be sure to choose a low-fat yogurt with live or active cultures on the label. This will insure that you reap the probiotic benefits of live yogurt which may help improve digestion and respiratory function.
This healthy, great tasting supplement is not only full of probiotics and antioxidants. It’s also packed with natural nootropics like chlorella, spirulina and wheatgrass, these ingredients have been shown to support the growth of brain cells, protect the brain from damage and degenerative diseases, and improve cognitive function.
Our superfood formula contains many powerful antioxidants, probiotics, vitamins and minerals. Goji berries have been studied for their ability improve neurologic function, support gastrointestinal health and help build stronger musculoskeletal systems. Acai berries contain antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats. Sweetened with natural monk fruit extract this supplement also contains no added sugar.

- 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
