Are smoothies good for you?

While most smoothies, especially ones that you buy pre-made, are full of sugars or artificial ingredients, this one is quite the opposite. Because the frozen banana and the blueberries add a natural sweetness to the smoothie, additional sugar is unnecessary. In addition to not being full of sugar, this blueberry banana smoothie is packed with protein, fiber, and antioxidants. 

What protein powder is best in a smoothie?

Personally, my favorite protein powder to add to smoothies is the Truvani plant-based protein. One scoop gives you a whopping 20 grams of protein! Another thing I love about this protein powder is that it tastes delicious- no chalky texture or strange aftertaste. 

How do you keep your smoothie from getting watery?

The first tip for keeping your smoothie from getting watery would be to limit the ice. A little bit of ice works well, but if you add too much your smoothie is not going to be as thick. I love to use frozen fruit in addition to ice to keep my smoothie nice and thick! Secondly, add in solids while limiting the liquids. I like to add in some Mooala Almond milk, but I balance out that liquid with the frozen fruit, ice, and chia seeds. 

Can a smoothie keep you full?

Yes, especially one that is packed with protein, healthy fats, and fiber like this one! Since this blueberry banana smoothie has so many great ingredients, it is sure to keep you healthy and full to get started on your day. 

What are the benefits of adding chia seeds?

Chia seeds contain a lot of fiber, as well as an antioxidant called Quercetin. This antioxidant lowers blood pressure and is an amazing benefit to your body. Though you can skip adding them to your smoothie, I highly suggest keeping them in because of all the good nutrients they add to your body!
