  • Learn how to make the perfect banana smoothie with our simple recipe.

    A banana smoothie recipe is all your need for a great start to the morning. Bananas are full of potassium, healthy protein and fibre so they contribute to a great breakfast, helping you to feel full until lunchtime.  This is the healthy, low calorie version of a typical banana smoothie which might also contain cocoa powder for a chocolate twist or peanut butter, for an extra hit of protein and a nutty finish. This type of smoothie also goes well as part of a smoothie bowl, alongside other fresh fruits.

    Ingredients

    • 1 ripe banana
    • 1/2 cup plain, low/non-fat yogurt
    • 1tbs honey
    • 1 cup crushed ice
    • Blueberries to serve

    Method

    • Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

    • Top with some fresh fruit. We used superfruit blueberries for their health-boosting goodness.

    Tips for making banana smoothie:

    If you have some slightly overripe bananas in the freezer, these will also work to make this smoothie.
