Banana Bread Smoothie
Banana bread in smoothie form gives a touch of sweetness—due to a drop of maple syrup and the bananas—as a perfect end to a meal.
- 2 medium bananas (peeled, sliced)
- 2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup fat-free milk
- 1/4 cup plain non-fat yogurt
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more if desired for garnish
- 1 1/2 cups ice cubes
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped unsalted pecans or walnuts (optional)
Cooking Tip: Frozen banana can be used instead of fresh; just decrease the quantity of ice.
Keep it Healthy: To turn this into a protein-packed breakfast, use 3/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt (which contains more protein that regular yogurt) and decrease the amount of milk down to 1/4 cup. Also, increase the oats to 1/2 cup for more fiber.
Tip: Investing in vanilla paste—which is a more intense version of vanilla extract—is an easy way to add more flavor into recipes without an increase in calories.
