Did you know that nearly half of the adults in America drink soda every day? Soda and sugary sport drinks fill people with calories that don’t add any nutritional benefit. These drinks also tend to include chemical additives like artificial food coloring, and they can contribute to a variety of health problems. By simply switching out soda for healthier drinks, we can significantly improve our health.
Smoothies are a healthier drink option that can fill you up with lots of nutrients all at once. This nutty banana smoothie includes loads of beneficial ingredients, and it tastes delicious.
It’s high in protein, calcium, probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, and potassium. Adding nuts to a smoothie is a great way to sneak them into your children’s diet if they don’t like to eat them whole. Just be sure to tell them about the walnuts after they drink this smoothie. It’s good for children to learn that in the right context, they may actually like some foods that they don’t think they like.

Love the idea of grinding up walnuts with milk before adding it to the blender – kind of like a homemade walnut milk! Can’t wait to try this at home – thanks for the idea!
Thanks, Amari! I hope you like it.
I’d never thought to put whole nuts into a smoothie before. Such a great idea to boost the protein, and also the omega-3s with the walnuts.
