Three Ingredient Banana Smoothie

Looking for a super easy breakfast or snack recipe idea?  This Three Ingredient Banana Smoothie recipe is effortless. We have been making a lot of smoothies lately, and this one is the simplest. This recipe is quick and easy with very little cleanup. It is also great for kids and adults, gluten free and is only 3 ingredients.

If you want to increase the protein in this recipe add 1 (6 ounce) container of nonfat plain Greek yogurt and/or your favorite protein powder. My favorite plain nonfat Greek yogurt brands are the Fage and Trader Joes. With this addition, I add an extra teaspoon of honey. Also, I add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of ground flaxseeds to this recipe. You can’t taste it and adding it increases the fiber and antioxidants.

Even though you don’t always see bananas on superfood lists, I definitely consider it to be one. Bananas contain fiber and antioxidants (such as including dopamine and catechins), potassium, Vitamin C and folate. There are also studies that state that bananas can reduce bloat, fight cancer, help with digestive issues and increase energy. One banana provides nearly 500 milligrams of potassium, giving athletes a quick dose of this very essential mineral.
