This is a smooth healthy shake/smoothie that everyone could enjoy. Little Miss (DD) loves her to drink banana shakes/smoothies so I had to slightly modify this recipe for her to be able to enjoy it. I used a very ripe banana and didn’t have a fresh orange at home so I used orange juice. I used a hand held blender to pulp the ingredients together. Original recipe comes from 'The Little Book of Alcohol-Free Cocktails' by Hamlyn
- 1 banana, chopped
- 1 oranges, juice of or 100 ml orange juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 300 ml lactose-free milk (1/2 pint) or 300 ml soymilk (1/2 pint) or 300 ml full-fat milk (1/2 pint)
- 8 ice cubes
- ground cinnamon
- Place the banana, orange juice, honey and milk in a food processor and process until smooth.
- Pour over ice into 2 tall glasses and sprinkle with cinnamon.
What a great smoothie! This was the perfect quick, healthy and yummy breakfast! YUM! I left out the honey as my banana was very sweet and used apple juice in place of the orange. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, Chef floWer!
Made and reviewed for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap November 2011.
A nice and simple go-to smoothie recipe. The sprinkle of cinnamon was a good addition.
Keeper recipe for sure! Just what I have been craving. I peeled the orange and broke into segments and used it that way. I didn't want to waste that fiber. I've never tried that before and it worked great. I also left out the ice. I love that this smoothie isn't overly sweet. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
