Banana Flour 

Gluten free and made from green bananas, banana flour is about to steal the spotlight. It has a nutty flavor that can be added to smoothies, dressings, as well as a replacement to traditional flour. Thanks to it’s high levels of resistant starch and highly absorbent properties, a little goes a long way. That being said banana flour has been found to help manage blood sugar levels and protect against diabetes and colon cancer.

It has a similar consistency somewhere in between milk and yogurt, yet contains zero lactose, making it excellent for anyone suffering from digestive issues. It also contains high levels of calcium and phosphorous but has a bitter taste, so try adding it to your favorite smoothie recipe.
