Why This Banana Raspberry Orange Power Smoothie Is Good For You

  • Bananas are an excellent source of potassium, vitamin B6, fibre and carbohydrate. Potassium is really important in the body as it helps to regulate heart function as well as fluid balance – a key factor in regulating blood pressure and protecting against heart disease and strokes.
  • Raspberries contain phytonutrients and are an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamin C and manganese. They are also said to have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and weight loss abilities.
  • Orange Juice as we know is packed with vitamin C but not just that, it’s loaded with a bunch of other healthy benefits too, like folate and thiamin which helps the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel. Research also suggests that orange juice may help to promote healthy blood cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure too which may reduce the risk of heart disease.

  1. I really should make more smoothies. I do love ’em, but I don’t think to make them very often. And this is the time of the year when smoothies are most helpful to avoid colds and flus! So far, we’ve been lucky this year (I probably just jinxed us), but I might have to boost my smoothie intake just to be sure. I’m also still in awe of the vacuum technology in this blender…so cool!

      Thanks David. You can’t beat a good smoothie packed with lots of fresh fruits to keep colds at bay can you? And yeah, this blender still amazes me too. I consider myself very fortunate to own one.

  2. This looks juicy and refreshing. Delicious combination of fruits and the nutritious benefits along with it. A perfect on the go smoothie to give the necessary energy and boost. A must-try!

  3. What a lovely way to start the morning. The colour itself is very appealing. Although I have a smoothie for breakfast most mornings, I’ve never tried this combination before. I’m really pleased with the Vac2 and its vacuum function. No need to chop the banana, I never do.

      Thanks Choclette, I’m really glad you like my vibrant healthy smoothie recipe! The Vac2 really does help to make this a brilliant smoothie, with no bits in either. 🙂
