Don't Toss That Banana Peel! Add It to Your Smoothie

Next time you reach for a banana, don't toss that peel! It's full of nutrients, making it the perfect addition to your healthy smoothie. We do suggest that you wash that peel thoroughly and consider buying organic bananas. Watch and learn why you should eat that banana peel and a recipe to incorporate it.

Ingredients

  2. 4 oz. organic frozen mango
  3. ½ cup + 2 tbsp. unsweetened vanilla coconut yogurt

Directions

  1. Wash and dry the banana. Cut off the ends and slice the banana in half. Peel one half of the banana and place it in the blender. Peel the other half, discarding the peel (throw it into a compost bin!).
  2. Chop the entire banana and add it to the blender along with the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Blend all the ingredients together until you have a smooth consistency, about 2-3 minutes. Pour into a glass, garnish, and enjoy!
