Health Benefits Of The Banana Coffee Smoothie
Bananas – Bananas are very healthy, readily available, and one of the least expensive fruits you can buy. They have relatively few calories, are rich in nutrients such as vitamin C and potassium, are full of potent antioxidants including flavonoids and animes, and are high in dietary fiber. Studies have shown that bananas can improve insulin sensitivity and may improve kidney health.
Coffee – Coffee is widely used for its ability to enhance focus and provide an energy boost. It contains the central nervous system stimulant caffeine which increases energy levels and reduces fatigue. Coffee has also been shown to reduce the risk of developing neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Almond Milk – Almond milk is a popular nut-based milk replacement that is naturally lactose-free, dairy-free, and completely vegan. It has a surprisingly diverse set of nutrients, including significant amounts of vitamin D, vitamin E, and calcium. Almond milk is also a heart-healthy beverage for those interested in lowering their cholesterol.
Vanilla – Vanilla is one of the most popular flavoring agents in the world due to its calming aroma and pleasing taste. It is also rich in the phenolic plant compound vanillin. Vanilla has been shown to protect brain cells against oxidative stress and to reduce liver damage.
FAQs About The Banana Coffee Smoothie From NutriBullet
Do bananas and coffee go together?
Yes. Bananas are an excellent addition to coffee drinks, naturally sweetening the coffee’s inherent bitterness while toning down any harsh acidity. Bananas also provide a creamy base, contrasting nicely with coffee’s gritty and watery suspension.
Can you put coffee grounds in a smoothie?
Yes. Although this recipe does not call for coffee grounds in the smoothie itself, many recipes have you toss them right in. Just make sure to finely grind your beans so the result isn’t too gritty and always start off with less than the recipe calls for so you won’t be surprised.
Do bananas cause belly fat?
No. Although bananas are fairly high in calories, they are an excellent fruit when striving for a flat belly. In addition to being loaded with healthy nutrients, they contain bulk indigestible fibers that help curb appetite and inhibit your body’s ability to absorb carbohydrates.
- Place banana, black coffee, vanilla almond milk, vanilla extract, and ice into a NutriBullet blender and secure the lid.
- Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
- Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
- Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.
- For ease of use, we recommend peeling and slicing a number of bananas, putting them in a freezer bag, and storing them in your freezer for quick access.
