Bananas are easy to digest and contain potassium, fiber, manganese, and vitamin C, making them an excellent food for children and those recovering from illness. They assist with sleep and enhance immune function, and also assist with the absorption and preservation of calcium in the body. To add banana to your NutriBlast, simply remove the peel, break the fruit into two or three sections, and add to your Tall Cup.

Selection Process

Choose bananas that are free of bruises. Bananas are best eaten when they begin show a few tiny dark spots. Ripe bananas can be stored at room temperature for 3-4 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks (the skin will brown, but the fruit inside will be fine). To freeze bananas, remove the skin and place in a sealed plastic bag.
