Mint Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Updated: May 28

We are taking the plain ol' strawberry banana smoothie to the next level. This is my Mint Strawberry Banana Smoothie and you're going to love how fresh this tastes. If you have a mint plant growing in your backyard, this is how you're going to put it to good use.


When it comes to building the right smoothie, it's about making a delicious one, of course, but also adding ingredients in that will help you feel fuller for longer, stabilize your energy levels, and provide your body with the nutrients it needs to feel and work at its' best. You want protein, fiber, healthy fats, and carbs just like in any meal. Protein, healthy fats, and fiber are going to be the factors that help stabilize your blood sugar and allow your body to use any glucose coming in at a slowerrrr rate.


We have strawberry and banana as our base, protein powder, chia seeds and oats for extra fiber, date syrup and mint for flavor, and almond milk to blend it all up. Make this before you're off to school or work if you're in a rush, or make it after a good workout to refuel your body. Your body will love it no matter when you have it.
