Enjoy a healthy beverage today. The Day3 tip of my 21-Day No Sugar Challenge. What will you have? I am making a Blueberry Banana Smoothie.
How healthy is blueberry banana smoothie?
Based from Wikipedia, blueberries consist of 14% carbohydrates, 0.7% protein, 0.3% fat and 84% water (table). They contain only negligible amounts of micronutrients, with moderate levels (relative to respective Daily Values) of the essential dietary mineral manganese, vitamin C, vitamin K and dietary fiber. Generally, nutrient contents of blueberries are a low percentage of the DV (table). One serving provides a relatively low. caloric value of 57 kcal per 100 g serving and glycemic load score of 6 out of 100 per day. Blueberries are low in calories!
How about banana? Let's refer to Wikipedia once again.
Raw bananas (not including the peel) are 75% water, 23% carbohydrates, 1% protein, and contain negligible fat. A 100-gram reference serving supplies 89 Calories, 31% of the US recommended Daily Value (DV) of vitamin B6, and moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and dietary fiber, with no other micronutrients in significant content.
Bananas have negligible fat!
So I have an ingredients with low in calories and negligible fat! I should start hitting the blender now!
The finished product is refreshing and filling! I enjoyed 2 tumblers of smoothie as my dinner for today.
