So many good ingredients in this smoothie! It always helps me to know what good I am doing for my body with what I choose to eat.
Yogurt offers probiotic support, which is good for digestion and absorption of nutrients. Look for yogurt with no added sugar and one million or more live active cultures (assuming your immune system is not compromised). Yogurt’s strong protein content combined with live bacterial cultures also offers blood sugar benefits. Fermented dairy products like yogurt have been shown to decrease bone risk.
Ginger supports digestion, aids nausea, boosts immunity and is anti-inflammatory.
Spinach is super rich in vitamins and minerals. It offers anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and even omega-3s!
Peaches are a good source of vitamins A and C and fiber.
With their high levels of potassium and sterols (which block the absorption of dietary cholesterol), bananas support cardiovascular health. Even though very sweet, the banana’s Glycemic Index is quite low. They have a wonderful mix of vitamins, minerals, and low glycemic carbohydrates which support endurance activities.
