This simple fruit, the Banana, has loads of nutritional benefits. Here are just a few:
- they reduce risk of heart disease and blood pressure
- regulate the bowel system
- reduce depression
- reduce menstrual pains
- rich in potassium and iron
- increase brain power
- increase energy
- soothe ulcers

medium-sized ripe bananas or 1 large
(preferably frozen)
2 cups
chilled/icy milk
1-2 tbsp.
honey or sugar
ice cubes
few drops of lemon juice
1/2 tsp.
vanilla essence

Ideally the smoothie turns out better with frozen bananas because they tend to give the drink a thick consistency and keep it cold. Make sure to peel, slice and then wrap the bananas well before freezing to make them easier to blend.

You can add crushed blanched/peeled almonds for a nutty flavor, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a richer taste.

Add all the ingredients into your blender and then blend until smooth and frothy. Pour into your serving glasses and serve immediately.

Enjoy! :)

Hi, mix 1 tsp instant coffee in a cup of hot water (or more depending on how strong you want your coffee). Add 1-2 tsp sugar to taste, then add 1 tbsp coffee mate and stir. Check and adjust to your taste.

What if I hv milk allergy is there an alternative for the banana smoothie?
