Thick Banana Smoothie

Thick Banana Smoothie

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 15 almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
This is basically just a fast and easy way to get bananas in your diet without having to chew. I wasn't sure I'd like the almonds in the recipe but they broke down in the blender - adding to the thicker smoothie texture without being annoying. I used 2 Tablespoons of slivered almonds instead of whole nuts. The trick of using frozen bananas is good to remember for all smoothies. All in all, I enjoyed this drink but it's super basic. Throwing a few random berries in the mix would have helped make it more interesting. (This recipe was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in August 2015.)

The freezing of the bananas was a great idea! It's like a milk-shake... but low-fat.
