Cinnamon Banana Smoothie
Since Smoothies are made with fruit, you can usually get a serving or two of fruits in your day. This is my easy smoothie recipe. Bananas have loads of potassium which is good for High Blood Pressure sufferers because it helps decrease the effects of sodium in the Diet. I was diagnosed with High Blood Pressure at a relatively young age of 38. Did u know that if you use fat free or 1% milk you can add even more Potassium. But if you don't like that type of milk , It's ok to use whole or 2% its a matter of taste preference. Honestly I usually buy 2% milk, myself, sometimes 1%.
I love this recipe because its simple and doesn't require yogurt, and since I don't like yogurt it's fine by me, lol!
Cinnamon also has some health properties as it can help blood sugar, IBS, PMS, Memory enhancement, is a natural preservative and an anti-oxident Still if you have any of this smoothie left, please refridgerate , let's not put that preservative info to the test, shall we! Ha!
