This simple smoothie recipe will get you psyched for the Back-to-Basics Smoothment starting September 8th with can't-fail ingredients like banana and strawberries. It also features our Yacon Syrup to add healthy sweetness. Similar to molasses in texture, Yacon Syrup has an ingredient called inulin, which breaks down slowly into fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and is not fully absorbed, therefore offering half the calories of your average sugar source. Inulin also promotes probiotic growth in the body, meaning gut-friendly bacteria.
Almond milk adds creaminess to the smoothie, while O.J. boosts Vitamin C content.
To get the most sweetness from your bananas, allow them to ripen. Then peel and freeze them in chunks ready to go for the week's smoothies.Enjoy!
