Banana Bread Smoothie

Posted · 1 Comment

You’ve got to try this delicious superfood vitamix smoothie recipe that tastes just like banana bread!  Full of brain nourishing, taste bud exciting, and tummy filling ingredients, this superfood smoothie will hit the spot when you’re craving banana bread!

Ingredients

Ingredient Notes

Almond Milk

  • can substitute any milk (cashew, coconut, dairy, soy, etc.)

Superfood Blends

Instructions

Add the almond milk first, then the superfood blend(s). Hold the container in one hand, and grab the male gear at the bottom of the container (connected to the blade assembly) and gently rotate it back and forth a bit to mix the superfood blend into the milk. Let it sit for a bit for the flax and chia seeds to get a chance to begin absorbing moisture.

Add the dates, frozen banana (break into 3-4 pieces), the walnuts, and the ice. If you have a Standard model start at Variable Speed #1, quickly move the dial to 10 (in less than 5 seconds), then flip the switch to High. If you have a Standard Programs, OR either of the Next Generation* models, start at Variable Speed #1, then move the dial quickly (in less than 5 seconds) up to Variable Speed #10 (High in a Standard model = Variable #10 in the other models).

Blend on high until the smoothie is the texture you like.

Variations

  • add cinnamon and/or nutmeg
  • add a very, very small pinch of sea salt (no more than 1/8 tsp.)
  • use frozen milk cubes instead of ice (will increase calories)
  • use water instead of ice and a room temperature banana then blend until steaming for a delicious hot beverage
