Savory Sage Banana Smoothie

Savory Sage Banana SmoothieAfter consuming this smoothie I couldn’t stop kicking myself for not using sage in a smoothie before now.

The sweet savory flavor of sage, and its myriad health promoting properties, make it a superb smoothie ingredient.

My adventures of incorporating more and more herbs and spices into my smoothies has proven quite successful. I encourage you to play with the various herbs and spices as well.

Here are a few of sage’s better known health benefits:

  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Potent antioxidant
  • Improved cognitive function (memory and concentration)
  • Cleansing and purification properties
  • Rich in Vitamin K

While researching sage I uncovered this cool little nugget: the International Herb Association awarded sage the title of “Herb of the Year” in 2001!

Below you’ll find a very basic sage and banana smoothie recipe. I encourage you to incorporate a few of the add-ons and create your own unique version of this smoothie.

I added frozen blueberries, spinach, and maca to my creamy custom creation. Enjoy!
