Ingredients

  • Bananas – You can use fresh or frozen bananas to make this smoothie. I used frozen. My favorite way to freeze them for smoothies is by slicing them before freezing.
  • Frozen Yogurt – Choose vanilla frozen yogurt or substitute for Greek yogurt if you like.
  • Milk – I used almond milk. You can use your favorite non-dairy or regular milk.
  • Vanilla Extract – I use vanilla extract in many of my smoothies. It’s delicious, aromatic and adds depth to smoothie recipes.
  • Honey – As an optional ingredient, I like to drizzle honey on top of my banana smoothie just before serving.

How to Make a Banana Smoothie

In a blender (I’m currently using this affordable Ninja blender), combine the milk, frozen yogurt, banana, and vanilla extract.

Blend and pulse until completely smooth.

Garnish with a drizzle of honey and a slice of banana.

Serve immediately.

Tips for the Perfect Banana Smoothie

  • Freeze sliced bananas in airtight containers for future smoothie recipes. Bananas are my most used smoothie ingredient. A good habit is to always freeze bananas that are beginning to get overripe in your kitchen.
  • Add a scoop of peanut butter if you like.
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon is a great addition to a banana smoothie.
