Benefits of Drinking this Peanut Butter Coffee 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 the 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.

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

Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber. In particular, chia seeds are high in soluble and prebiotic fibers, which help fight constipation and improve colon health.
