What could be better on a hot summer day? If you’re already a fan of mint tea, you know what I mean. But I have an even better idea. And that’s a smoothie with mint.

Smoothies serve well as a replacement for meals. So I aim to make this one filling, delicious, and refreshing.

I know it may sound like a challenge. But there’s nothing I love more on such days than this awesome healthy drink.

The Many Health Benefits Of This Awesome Smoothie

I love smoothies that are low in calories. And that is why I recommend this smoothie so much. Mint is a very low-calorie food. And adding it to a smoothie makes that drink fantastic.

It is an ally of proper digestion. So it works hand-in-hand with the bananas included in this recipe. If you have trouble with natural bowel movement, drinking this will help. Also, it might help with bad breath. Which is another great benefit.

Mint is a source of vitamin C, and so are strawberries. That’s the secret of this smoothie. It can make you feel energetic by adding a good dose of this vitamin. Plus, it helps you fight cold symptoms and other illnesses.

If you don’t want to make it with water, you can choose coconut milk instead. Rich in unique nutrients, it makes this smoothie special.

And don’t forget about the amazing benefits of bananas. They are so rich in dietary fiber, that they make you feel satiated. There’s no need for a full meal if you have this smoothie.
