Have over ripe bananas lying on your shelf that need to be used up immediately? There are 2 things I usually do with them. I make sweet, spicy banana pancakes (kele doddak, dosas) for breakfast or make this delicious banana smoothie.
Having a busy week? Don’t have time to cook breakfast and are bored of cereals? Then make yourself this drink. It’s packed with goodness for you and is super filling.
To make this smooth, creamy, filling smoothie you'll need just 2 minutes and 4 ingredients. (Provided you have a blender easy to clean. :-) ) This is an age old recipe. It’s nutrient dense and calorically dense. Perfect to kick start your day. It’s also a great alternative to squeeze a little more nutrient density into your diet or even your little ones diets. This can be enjoyed for a snack, breakfast, or even dessert.
It is similar to you eating a banana, but when you’re bored of plain bananas and if they are over ripe, then you get a creamy, delicious drink, made with a dash of cinnamon. Cinnamon makes this drink pretty special.
Banana is an amazing fruit, a whole food. This banana smoothie may be a high calorie smoothie, but it works out, if you try and use it as a meal replacement or snack.
Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Add any or all of the following to make a richer, sweeter drink:
P.S: Use a hand blender to save you time with doing the dishes. Pour all the ingredients into a glass. Use a hand blender and you're done. Minimum cleaning too.
