Powerhouse Green Smoothie

Powehouse Green SmoothieStart your day strong with an all-in-one meal. Smoothies fit the bill pre- or post-workout because they are quick and easy to make, combine food groups and, as liquids, digest more quickly than solids. Canola oil added to your smoothie contributes omega-3 fat and creates a smooth, creamy consistency.

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) ripe banana slices

  • 1  1/2 tsp (7 mL) canola oil
