What is a Banana, Passion-Fruit, and Vanilla Yoghurt Smoothie and why should I drink one?

A passion fruit smoothie is one of the best, most refreshing and just-plain-yummy drinks you can drink. A passion fruit is a tropical fruit that has a sweet flavour with hints of citrus to it.

It’s also one of the rare fruits in which its skin color does not change when ripe! The banana, on the other hand, has an unparalleled creamy texture, and a sweet flavor that has hints of vanilla.

The greatness of this drink comes from the taste you get when combining these two fruits in addition to using yoghurt as an ingredient since it is famous for its refreshing nature.

It brings out the best flavours while also giving you some healthy probiotics at the same time!

It also helps with weight loss, digestion, immune function, heart health in addition to bones.

The second benefit of these smoothies is that they’re easy on the digestive system due to their low-fat content a big bonus for those who are suffering from stomach issues or other gastrointestinal problems.

The third benefit of these smoothies is that they can be made in advance so it’s the perfect breakfast on those days when life rushes by or as an after-dinner dessert.

You will find yourself making this drink over and over again because its fresh ingredients mean it has no artificial flavors or preservatives which makes it always tastes better than store-bought options.

Variety of ingredients for your own concoction

You can try your own variety of fruits for your own personal taste.

Bananas, oranges, and strawberries are all great to start with for a sweet-tasting smoothie, while pineapple is ideal if you’re looking for something a bit more tangy.

Top five ingredients that are good in any smoothie recipe 

  1. Bananas are a great source of potassium and fibre, as well as magnesium which is needed for energy production. Bananas can be added up to three days before they spoil so you have plenty of time if you’re planning ahead!
  2. Passion fruit has many health benefits including blood sugar regulation, healthy teeth and bone formation thanks to the high levels of manganese it contains. One cup also provides over 100% daily value for Vitamin C which helps maintain your immune system against free radicals.
  3. Vanilla Extract, try adding vanilla extract or other natural flavouring agents like cocoa powder or cinnamon instead of artificial sweeteners
  4. Milk or yogurt, milk or vanilla yoghurt are the best options as they contribute calcium, vitamin D and protein
  5. Honey/Maple syrup, natural sweeteners that will not spike blood sugar levels like artificial ones. If you want a sweeter drink try adding honey or maple syrup instead of adding more fruit juice which may contain high amounts of added sugars.
  6. Dates, dates provide potassium, fibre (to keep your digestive system running smoothly), magnesium for energy production, and B vitamins such as folate which is needed during pregnancy. They also boost our mood by releasing dopamine into the brain.

Fruits to use in a green smoothie

Feel free to experiment with different fruits for different flavors. It’s not stone set to use the same fruits over and over again. Personalize your smoothies and enjoy different tastes!

The fruits I use in my fruit smoothies are:

-Bananas

-Blueberries

-Strawberries

-Raspberries

-Mangoes

-Peaches

Beware that if you use fruits with a darker color, such as blueberries or raspberries the color of your green smoothie will change.

Other add-ins to the new green smoothie

  1. Bran flakes, wheat germ, or other cereal with fiber to keep you fuller longer.
  2. Ginger root, provides a boost of energy plus immunity support during the cold season.
  3. Cinnamon, healthy substitute for sugar! It also aids in blood sugar regulation which may help suppress appetite and prevent diabetes.
  4. Protein Powder, is my favorite plant-based, whey-free protein powder in vanilla and chocolate flavors. 
  5. Collagen Powder, a neutral-tasting protein boost!
  6. Maca, best for hormonal balance.
  7. Chai seeds, for added protein without protein powders.
  8. Flaxseeds, adds a bit of Omega 3s
