Our banana smoothie is extra creamy and fruity. Depending on how ripe or sweet your banana and orange are, you may need to add a little extra honey, so add based on your taste. There are many additions you can make here, try adding 1/2 a cup to a cup of fresh greens, such as spinach for a green smoothie. Also, you could add 1/2 a cup of strawberries, mango, frozen berries, pineapple, or other favorite fruit.

Directions

  1. Roughly chop banana and orange quarters then add to a blender. Top with yogurt and the water (or milk).
  2. Turn blender on and blend until creamy and smooth. Taste then adjust with honey if needed.

Adam and Joanne's Tips

How to Freeze or Make Ahead: This recipe makes one smoothie or two kid-size smoothies. Enjoy now, or save for later. To save the smoothie for later, pour each serving into a food-safe resealable plastic bag or container and freeze. Then, about an hour before needing the smoothie, take out from freezer.
Non-Dairy alternatives: If you are looking for a banana smoothie without yogurt, then simply leave the yogurt out of the recipe above and replace with more banana, a tablespoon or so of nut butter, mango, or a tablespoon of hemp seeds (great protein source). You may need to add additional water or non-dairy milk to thin the smoothie out a little.
