Benefits of Drinking the Smoothie

Peanut butter contains a significant amount of vitamin E, 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.

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.

Whole milk is packed with nutrients like calcium, phosphorus, potassium and vitamins B and D. Whole milk is also an excellent source of protein. Drinking milk may prevent osteoporosis and bone fractures.

Protein powder contains protein, an essential macronutrient that helps build muscle and repair tissue.
