Smoothies: Banana and Walnut

Hmm, the walnut is one of my least favourite nuts. It looks too much like a human brain for my liking.



Ingredients:

1 cup milk
1 banana
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
handful of chopped walnuts


I loved this one. The blended walnuts made a really creamy smoothie with a lovely deep flavour. Yum!

Walnuts are another superfood. They have anti-inflammatory qualities as well as being full of antioxidants including manganese and copper. It has vitamin B and molybdenum...wait, what? Never heard of that one! Apparently (thanks Google) it's needed to keep certain enzymes working in our body and those enzymes are needed to keep body functions working. Thanks everyone for your hard work.

I can't remember if I've raved about bananas yet but they're also great for you with potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron and lots more. Bananas can help with depression as a mineral in them turns into serotonin, the mood-elevating brain neurotransmitter. Thanks bananas!
