Easy Smoothies With Potassium Rich Bananas

If you have a high sodium diet, you want to check your blood pressure. Besides cutting down on excessive sodium, you can also incorporate having more potassium in your diet.

My favourite is banana. They are filling, they are sweet and they are great base for all my smoothies. Buy a bunch of bananas and freeze some (after you peel off the skin) in ziplog bags.

When you want a cool smoothie, just cut your frozen banana and blend it. You can add some kiwis or strawberries, add your favorite nuts (almond if you like) and seed (I choose flax) and you have a lovely smoothie. Depending on how many bananas you use, this can even be an ice-cream.

If you are taking high amounts of salt in you daily diet, do consider cutting down on it if you want to maintain a healthy blood pressure level. You can add a variety of potassium rich food like apricot, avocado, spinach and tomatoes. Cutting down on the sugar will also help
