Banana's have been a bit of a luxury here in Australia for a while but we have been so blessed to have obtained some lovely organic bananas at a very reasonable price. (Thanks Tony and Di for the growing and Dave and Rada for getting them for us) As a result banana smoothies became a daily treat for us. Up in Queensland we were excited to find more banana's: Mohini's bunch straight off the tree. Thanks for the great tasting banana's and picture prop, Mohini.
2 large ripe bananas (1 frozen for a colder, thicker smoothie)
2 cups organic soy/oat/rice milk
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla paste
2-4 Tbs organic soy/pea protein powder (optional)
Note: frozen banana and protein powder will both make the smoothie thicker so add milk for desired consistency.
Blend all ingredients until smooth and Enjoy.
Banana's are high in vitamin B6 (100g banana contains approximately 31% of the RDI for vitamin B6) Bananas also contain moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and potassium and small amounts of several other nutrients.
B6 is involved in more bodily functions than almost any other single nutrient and has affects on physical as well as mental health.
