Because this smoothie contains all those flavors that you would find in banana bread or muffins. And, it hardly takes 5 mins. to prepare and perfect super easy and quick breakfast for busy mornings. Who would deny this?

If you are not a first-time visitor to our website, you would see, that I like to alter recipes and give them a healthy twist. For example, a few weeks back, I shared a healthy whole wheat banana bread recipe. We enjoy it for our breakfasts with a hot cup of tea. We both don’t drink coffee usually. Especially, I am a big fan of tea. And Indian masala chai….Ahhh!…it is so addictive. And those who love Indian masala chai can imagine my pleasure. See how addictive it is that I got distracted from our banana bread smoothie. Let’s talk more about it.
Banana Bread Smoothie
I have made banana smoothies several times before. But this time I gave it a twist and made it taste like banana bread.
To make this power booster healthy smoothie, I use granola, walnuts, skim milk, and of course, ripe banana. Use non-fat plain greek yogurt to give it a creamy texture. If you will look at the banana bread recipe, you can find this smoothie contains everything that can go into bread. I used granola to replace flour because I like its toasted nutty flavor. If you are okay with the flavor of raw oats, you can use those instead of granola.
And, what is great about this smoothie! it is
- super-quick to make
- naturally sweetened
- helpful if you are watching your weight
