Coffee and Banana Morning Smoothie

Give yourself a happy boost and start your day with a stress-relieving coffee and banana morning smoothie. Here are just a couple of the many health benefits of bananas and why adding them to your daily diet is important:

:) regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation
:) contains high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin - the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter
:) protect against heart attack and stroke
:) high in potassium and low in salt
:) rich in pectin to regulate digestion
:) a natural antacid, providing relief from acid reflux, heartburn and GERD


1 sliced peeled banana
1 cup 1% low-fat milk 
1/2 cup cold black coffee 
2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
1/2 cup ice in a blender
Blend until smooth—and enjoy!
