We love this recipe because it is made with bananas instead of traditional dairy ice-cream making it a healthy and guilt-free treat! Bananas are such an incredibly nutritious and veritable fruit! See below for all the amazing health benefits from bananas!
HEALTH BENEFITS OF BANANAS
Did you know that one bananas provides around 9% of your daily Potassium intake? Potassium is an electrolyte that regulates nerve function and also is what helps your muscles contract. Low potassium levels in the body can lead to more severe things such as irregular heart beat.
Bananas also contain lectin, which acts like an antioxidant in the body. Antioxidants are important because they help your body right free radicals and protects cells from damage. The vitamin C content found in bananas can also help protect cells!
Another reason to love this fruit is that it is full of fiber and water! Both of these things are crucial for digestion and may help with keeping you regular.
