Nutritional Benefits of a
Healthy Fruit Smoothie
Strawberry banana smoothie recipes can make you some of the most nutritious — and delicious — meals on earth. Healthy fruit smoothies are loaded with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and enzymes that come in a whole-food form.
The fruits and vegetable blended together in healthy smoothie recipes provide vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber that will do wonders for your health — and build up your body’s defenses against disease.
In addition, when fruits and vegetables are blended, the plant fibers are broken down just like when you chew them; the blender literally does most of the “chewing” for you. And chewing food more thoroughly means that you'll absorb more of the nutrients.
Healthy fruit smoothies retain the fiber from the fruits and the vegetables you use. The fiber works to improve digestion and helps your body naturally rid itself of toxins. Fiber also helps you feel more satisfied, and maintains that feeling longer.
Strawberries and Bananas Make Great Smoothie Ingredients
Strawberries are among the most popular ingredients used for fruit smoothie recipes — for many reasons. They're easy to blend, and add lots of flavor without adding tons of sugar or calories. Bananas add just the right amount of sweetness, and they'll thicken your smoothie as well as add fiber. This is an unbeatable combination for making a healthy fruit smoothie.

Most smoothie recipes call for a liquid ingredient to allow the solid
components to move around inside the blender and give your smoothie the
right thickness. The beverage you choose will largely determine how
healthy your smoothie turns out.

Complete Guide to Making a Healthy Smoothie
Everything you need to know!
Many smoothie recipes are relatively low in protein, so they're not complete meals by themselves. The easy solution is to add a protein source to any healthy smoothie recipe.
The simplest way to do this is by adding a couple of raw organic eggs to your basic recipe. Raw eggs won't change the taste of your smoothie at all, and the argument that they're bad for you because of the cholesterol content is just not true. Eggs are one of the most beneficial foods you can eat, especially when consumed raw.
can also increase the protein content of your healthy smoothie by adding a protein powder. Be
sure to use a high quality product; most cheap protein powders are excessively heat-processed and aren't really good for you.
There are many other ways to transform your ordinary smoothie recipe into one with enhanced nutritional value. You can add superfood powders, healthy fats, herbs, spices and extra fiber. My complete guide to making a smoothie has lots of tips and tricks to make your smoothie better.
When a recipe calls for milk, I suggest you use any type of non-dairy milk product — there are many different ones: hemp, almond, soy, rice, etc. They're a healthier alternative, and easy to keep on hand.
