Blueberries are very low in calories. However, they possess notable health benefiting plant-nutrients such as soluble dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins, and pigment anti-oxidants that contribute immensely towards optimum health and wellness.The berries also contain a small amount of B-complex group of vitamins such as niacin, pyridoxine, folates and pantothenic acid. It contains very good amounts of vitamin B-6, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and folic acid. These vitamins are acting as co-factors help the body metabolize carbohydrates, protein, and fats.

Banana is a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, manganese and vitamins B6 & C. Banana suppress acid in the digestive tract, alleviating heartburn and helping guard against ulcers. Since bananas contain pectin, a soluble fiber, they aid in the elimination process, helping prevent constipation.

I made smoothie with these nutrition packed fruits along with vanilla ice cream.

Notes:

  • If you prefer you can add sugar also but I feel fruit itself has enough sweet. So there is no need to add sugar.
