Banana Smoothie

Servings : Serves 2

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


  • 2 medium-sized ripe bananas or 1 large (preferably frozen)
  • 2 cups chilled/icy milk
  • 1-2 tbsp. honey or sugar
  • 8 ice cubes
  • few drops of lemon juice (optional)
  • 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! 🙂
