Weight Loss

Want to shed a few pounds? Guava is just the ticket. Without compromising your intake of proteins, vitamins, and fiber, guava helps you lose weight by regulating your metabolism. It’s a win-win! Guava makes for a very filling snack and satisfies the appetite very easily. Guava, especially raw guava, also has far less sugar as compared to apples, oranges, grapes, and other fruits.

Treats Constipation: It is one of the richest sources of dietary fiber in comparison to other fruits and just 1 guava fulfills about 12% of your daily recommended intake of fiber, which makes it extremely beneficial for your digestive health. Guava seeds, if the ingested whole or chewed, serve as excellent laxatives too, helping the formation of healthy bowel movements.

Low-Fat Banana Smoothie

A meal replacement that you can make in no time flat, a banana smoothie fuels your body with many nutrients, including potassium, vitamin C, and fiber. As an added bonus, this drink tastes wonderful and pleases hungry people of all ages.





Ingredients

Assembling the ingredients and blending the smoothie takes just a matter of minutes.

1 cup of water,
1/2 cup fresh banana chunks or slices 
1 cup of low-fat yogurt or milk into your blender (or cup if using a handheld blender). Use less water, about 1/2 of a cup, to create a thicker smoothie. 
You can add more flavor by including a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring. 
About 1/2 cup of banana slices, which is equivalent to the size of a small banana, lends good flavor and nutrition to a smoothie.

Increase or decrease this amount depending on your preference.

Instructions

Place the lid on the blender (or cover the cup if using a handheld blender), and then press your blender’s appropriate blending button to combine the mixture. Your smoothie is ready when all ingredients are thoroughly mixed together. If you are using cubed or crushed ice, use the ice crusher setting on your blender to chop and blend the ice into the smoothie.

Fat Content

Bananas are quite low in fat; 1/2 cup of sliced bananas contains just 0.25 grams of fat. Adding 1 cup of plain, low-fat yogurt adds 3.80 grams of fat, and 1 cup of 1 percent low-fat milk adds 2.37 grams of fat. To further decrease the smoothie’s fat content, use nonfat milk or yogurt.

Nutrients

Bananas are rich in certain nutrients. For example, 1/2 cup of sliced bananas contains 268 milligrams of potassium, 6.5 milligrams of vitamin C, 0.275 milligrams of vitamin B-6, 15 micrograms of folate and 20 milligrams of magnesium. This same amount of bananas also contains 2 grams of dietary fiber.
