Benefits of Drinking the Avocado Banana Smoothie

Bananas help moderate blood sugar by lowering appetite and slowing the rate at which the stomach empties. Another great banana recipe to try is our High Calorie Banana Delight Pudding.

Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein, aiding in muscle development and recovery. Greek yogurt is also a great source of Vitamin A, B2, B5, phosphorus, calcium, and selenium. 

Avocados are an anti-inflammatory food and a great source of vitamins C, E, K, B, magnesium, and potassium. They also contain high levels of fiber and healthy fats. Avocado consumption has been linked to lower levels of LDL cholesterol.

Peanut butter contains a significant amount of vitamin E, niacin (B3), manganese, vitamin B6, and magnesium. It also has a good level of copper, a mineral that helps with the bones, immune system, and blood vessels. Copper can help reduce risk of osteoporosis and heart disease.
