Banana Smoothie– a breakfast smoothie filled with bananas, banana cream yogurt, almond milk and french vanilla creamer. I love this smoothie!
If you have followed my blog for awhile, you know that I love smoothies!
I make a smoothie almost every day for either breakfast or as a late afternoon snack. It’s the perfect way to fill me up without having to sit down and eat a full breakfast.
So as you can imagine I’m always looking to switch up my smoothie recipes and this Banana Smoothie has been my go-to breakfast smoothie for a couple of weeks now.
And I read somewhere that bananas increase happiness by releasing a mood regulating substance called tryptophan which is converted to serotonin in the brain.
So cheers to drinking more banana smoothies!
BANANA SMOOTHIE INGREDIENTS
ALMOND MILK: I like to use unsweetened almond milk when making smoothies. You can use regular milk, juice or even water.
INTERNATIONAL DELIGHT FRENCH VANILLA CREAMER: The trick to a delicious, creamy smoothie is adding a couple tablespoons of creamer to it. For this smoothie, I used International Delight French Vanilla.
YOGURT: I usually have a ton of yogurt in my fridge at all times but for this smoothie I used banana cream flavored yogurt instead of my usual plain vanilla yogurt and it made this banana smoothie even better.
BANANAS: I like to buy a bunch of bananas, especially when they are on sale and freeze them (make sure to peel the banana before freezing them). Frozen bananas are perfect for all kinds of smoothies but if you don’t have any frozen bananas, no worries, just add some ice cubes to make the smoothie colder.
HOW TO MAKE A SMOOTHIE
BEST SMOOTHIE BLENDER: I always get asked what blender I use to make my smoothies. My favorite blender to use is the Ninja Blender but it’s kinda pricey (totally worth it though), so another favorite of mine that’s less expensive is this blender.
FILL UP YOUR BLENDER: You always want to layer your ingredients softest to hardest (frozen). First, add the almond milk, yogurt and creamer. Then, add the frozen bananas. If your bananas are not frozen, then also add about a handful of ice cubes.
EXTRA SMOOTHIE LEFTOVER? If you have some leftover smoothie, you can put it in the fridge for later. Once your ready to drink it, I like to add a little extra yogurt to the smoothie to thicken it up again.
