The “Banana, Date, And Lime Smoothie” has become my favorite energy smoothie and it was hard to knock the “Banana Strawberry Date Energy Drink” off its throne. The tartness of the lime in contrast to the sweetness of the dates does wonders to the tongue. The lime increases the alkalizing ability of the smoothie, which supports the immune system, which adds a punch to the benefits of the bananas and dates which are high in:

1. Simple carbohydrates which quickly convert to energy
2. Fiber
3. Electrolytes to support muscle function: potassium, phosphorus, and sodium
4. Vitamin B6, vitamin C, manganese it also contains a wide range of other vitamins and minerals

Oh, it also tastes pretty good.

Ingredients

  • 2 Bananas
  • 3 Dates
  • 1/2 Apple
  • Juice of 1/2 of a Lime
  • Enough Water to make 32oz of juice

Directions

  • Step 1: Add all of the ingredients to a blender and enough water to make 32 oz, and blend. Enjoy
