This smoothie features an all-star cast of superfood sensations. Bananas are good sources of fiber, slow-burning carbohydrates to balance energy throughout the day, and heart-healthy sterols. They are surprisingly nutritious, containing vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, potassium, biotin, copper and pectins. They also contain fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) which are a source of food for the friendly bacteria in the human digestive system, and a well-functioning system keeps your energy in-balance.

Mulberries are a respectable source of antioxidants and polyphenols, not to mention vitamin A, B6, B12, C, E, K, riboflavin, folate, calcium and other nutrients that keep your body ticking.

Oats are an excellent source of B vitamins and magnesium. And both oats and cashews are loaded with protein and fiber which keeps your energy up and your digestive system in check. Cashews are also good source of antioxidants and dietary trace minerals such as manganese and copper.
