Banana Bread Smoothie

I love smoothies, and I’m always looking for new and different recipes. This Banana Bread Smoothie with Fiber One™ Original Cereal is the perfect fiber-filled way to enjoy the flavor of banana bread without baking!

Note: I worked with Fiber One™ Original on this paid post.

Fiber is one of those nutrients Americans struggle with. And by struggle with, I mean they don’t get enough on a regular basis. According to the Mayo Clinic, eating adequate fiber as part of a balanced diet is linked to a reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and all types of cancer. Plus, fiber keeps you regular and promotes gut health. I don’t know about you, but that sounds good to me!

You may need more fiber, but there’s no need to turn to chalky supplements to get it. Take advantage of real food, such as Fiber One™ Original Cereal, to make easy and delicious recipes that help you include fiber without giving it a second thought.

If you’ve never added cereal to a smoothie, give it a try. This Banana Bread Smoothie has just enough cereal to amp up the flavor, and it supplies more than 40% of the Daily Value for fiber! It also provides a serving of fruit and a serving of dairy, all for under 300 calories.
