BANANA SMOOTHIE RECIPE–SUMMMER RECIPES

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum

Its almost summer in Bangalore.We feel like having some juices/Drinks in the afternoons.So to start with Summer drinks recipes,i thought of making this easy & simple banana smoothie recipe with milk.I really din’t know the difference between a milkshake and smoothie until i tried this.After googling,i found smoothie is just a blend of fruits,honey and Milk whereas Milkshake is made by pulsing milk,sugar and ice cream with an essence or fruit.Ice cream is very important for Milk shakes.As i din’t have ice cream in my hand,i tried smoothie.The consistency of smoothie should be thicker than milkshake.So i followed my Sharjah shake recipe to make it thick.It was very tasty and filling.We just loved it.With the smell of bananas and flavour of cinnamon,it was awesome.Do try this simple,easy to make,healthy banana smoothie.U’ll love it Smile

Note


  • For variations,use sugar instead of honey.
  • U can also use a tbsp of drinking chocolate powder to get chocolate flavour.
  • If u don’t want to use frozen milk,use ice cubes along with milk while blending.
  • It will be too cold when u drink immediately.So u can make it 30 minutes in advance & keep it too.Chillness would be just right when u drink.
  • Adding cinnamon powder gives a nice flavour to smoothie.so please add.

Enjoy this smoothie along with breakfast.Its very healthy,filling too !
