Benefits of Drinking the Peanut Butter Banana 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.

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.

Half-and-half is an excellent source of calcium, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B2. Calcium is important for maintaining bone health.

Oats are an excellent source of soluble fiber, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc, and vitamin B1. Soluble fiber aids in digestive health and prevents constipation.
