Ready for a Mint Lime Banana Shake recipe today?
I was craving mint and lime in nice-cream shake form.
So I gathered the goods.
Side note: don’t even ask me why I added in a Green apple, but I did. I never eat the Green apples, but I saw these at our local farmer’s stand and knew I had to give it a try in this recipe.
And then I threw all the ingredients in the Vitamix.
Are you wondering why the bananas look so brown and odd? It’s because they were already frozen. One way to save money on bananas is to buy them in larger bulk quantities, and once they become too ripe, freeze them for times like now.
I mean, you already use brown bananas for banana bread, yes?
The Vitamix made blending easy peasy, and my final beautiful product was done in a heartbeat.
It was so good that I made the exact recipe yesterday again. The mixture made 3 full jars. In theory, Sam ate one, but since she still cannot eat real food, Ryan had two 🙂 But on that note, YES, I will be making all of Samarah’s baby food…..likely in the Vitamix!
Enjoy the recipe, and grab even more in The Gutsy Girl’s Bible: an approach to healing the gut.

Why the Mint Lime Banana Shake is Great for Digestion
Mint and lime are both great for digestion. The apple contains prebiotics and fiber. There is no added sugar to this dairy-free shake. And it’s full of ingredients vs. ingredients.
