Why should I use green banana in my smoothie?

If your diet goals include more fiber and less sugar, you want to use green bananas in your smoothies. Bananas with a green peel are higher in resistance starch (aka fiber) and lower in sugar than bananas with a yellow peel. The fiber is great for gut health, helps maintain blood sugar levels, and can help make you feel fuller longer. For diabetics, green bananas can have a Glycemic index as low as 30, while fully ripe bananas can have a Glycemic index around 60.
