Best Banana Smoothie Recipes

Mixed Fruits

I call my banana smoothie recipes my kids "gap-fillers" because they help fill up the "gap" for my kids nutritional intake of daily vitamins and minerals.

There are so many ways to make a great smoothie. It's all about trying a few times, and mixing with your favorite combination of fruits, vegetables and anything else you fancy.

However, I always use bananas as a base as they give a smooth, creamy texture to the smoothie and is a nutritious substitute to a scoop of ice-cream. And they go along well with everything!

Here are my best banana smoothie recipes for a easy, quick and satisfying drink on-the-go. Go bananas and enjoy.

Banana Smoothie Recipes Reminder:
1. If your smoothie turns out thick, add more milk. If your smoothie turns out thin, add more fruits, ice cubes or yogurt.
2. If your smoothie turns out tart, add honey.
3. For a frosty smoothie, use frozen fruits. If you use frozen fruits, then you don't really have to use ice cubes.
4. To freeze bananas, peel the bananas first and slice them into chunks and seal them into zip-lock bags for at least 2 hours.

    Easy Banana Bread
    Great recipe! I had two ripe bananas at home and wanted to use them right away, so I searched for ideas on the Internet. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. Since I only had two bananas, I used only half of every ingredient (I added a dash of cinnamon) and baked it for half the time, too! It was so delicious!

But I tried this recipe and trust me, I have NO regrets! awesome!!!! If you don't have baking soda, like I did, use two teaspoons of baking powder

    Love it! Cant believe how easy it was and what a beautiful cake it makes! Easy enough for my kids to do and so professional looking and tasting! Even our fussiest banana bread lover loved it!! VERY impressed!! A++++
    Daggy Shaggs, February 2011
    Excellent! This would have to be the most delicious and moist banana cake ever! I used wholemeal flour instead and it was still unbelievably moist. Also, I baked it for 50 mins instead, then left to cool and that helped make it more moist yet not undercooked. This has now become a firm family favourite, thankyou!.

    I'm a 12 year old girl who just loves cooking and I was trying to find an easy banana cookie recipe.. And then I found this! I added some chocolate chips just to make it taste better, but it already tasted amazing. It was all gone in 1 day! Thanks a lot.
    Lisa, December 2011
    This might be my new favorite recipe! Plain, they are like mini, takealong banana bread bites! Delicious! Then I got creative, and dipped them in semisweet chocolate, then pressed a walnut on top and now they are an elegant cookie! I wowed my friends at our cookie exchange this year, but little did they know how simple it was! Thank you for the best kept secret I'll ever have in my kitchen!
