Method1Honey-Banana Smoothie

  1. 31Peel and slice a banana, and put it into a blender. For a thicker smoothie, use a frozen banana instead. If you don’t have a blender, you can use a food processor fitted with metal blades.
  2. 22Add the milk and honey. The more milk you use, the thinner smoothie you will get. For a thicker smoothie, use plain or vanilla yogurt instead.
    • For extra protein, add 3 tablespoons (45 grams) of peanut butter.
    • For extra flavor, add a pinch of ground cinnamon.
    • If you can’t find any honey, you can use sugar, agave nectar, stevia, or even maple syrup instead.
  3. 23Top it off with ice, if desired. If you are using frozen bananas, then you can skip the ice cubes—unless you like really thick smoothies.
  4. 14Blend the ingredients until everything is smooth and evenly combined. There should be no lumps or clumps. From time to time, you may have to pause the blender, open it up, and push the ingredients down the sides with a rubber spatula.
    • Depending on what type of blender you have, you may need to choose a setting, such as: “smoothie,” “blend,” or “puree.”
  5. 35Pour the smoothie into a glass and serve. You can enjoy it as it is, or you can garnish it with a dollop of whipped cream, banana slices, or a drizzle of honey.
