Tasty Tuesday: Prunana Smoothie

Let's make something Tasty!

Need something healthy, satisfying, and sweet?  Try this hearty smoothie--great after a morning workout or as a daytime snack.  The recipe is super simple!

                                                            3/4 Cup of Prunes
                                                            1 Banana
                                                            1 Cup of Water

You've got quite a few options with this, too!  You can cut up and freeze your bananas first to give it a frosty smoothness, or you can add some ice for a crunchy chill.  You can even substitute a different liquid, such as soy, almond, or dairy milk (but it's pretty darn rich with just water).

Cut, measure, throw it in the blender!

While there's controversy about the health benefits of cinnamon, some studies suggest that it can help lower cholesterol and blood sugar.  Add it in for a flavor boost and bonus benefits!

Blend everything on high until it's reached your desired consistency.  Ta-da~!
