Banana Smoothie Ingredients
- Bananas: The ripeness of your bananas will affect the taste of your smoothie. For a sweeter smoothie, use bananas that are very ripe. Frozen bananas are best because they help to thicken the smoothie. If you forget to plan ahead and don’t have frozen bananas, you can use it unfrozen. If you’re using fresh bananas, you may want to add in a few ice cubes to chill the smoothie.
- Greek Yogurt. Plain Greek yoghurt is my preference to keep this smoothie lower in sugar, but you can also use vanilla yoghurt.
- Milk: Use your milk of choice. Dairy, almond milk, and oat milk are all good options.
- Vanilla. A little bit of vanilla extract adds a hint of sweetness and delicious flavour to this banana smoothie. You can omit the vanilla extract if you’re using vanilla Greek yoghurt.

How to make a banana smoothie
This banana smoothie is quick and easy to make. All you have to do is add the ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth.
Use at least one frozen ingredient in your smoothie. Frozen bananas, for example, help to thicken and chill your smoothie.
Ensure you use less liquid, to begin with. You can always add more liquid to get to your desired consistency. Layer the smoothie ingredients for the most efficient blending. Greens, such as spinach should be at the bottom of the blender to give them a head start on blending up smoothly.
The same goes for raw oats, nuts, or any frozen fruit you desire to use. Add ingredients such as yoghurt on top of the fruits and vegetables to prevent them from sticking to the bottom of your blender. Begin blending on low speed and increase to higher speed as the smoothie starts to blend together.
Don’t overfill the blender. If you are making a double or triple batch of smoothies to feed a crowd, start by adding only part of the frozen ingredients. Then add more once you get the first addition blended smooth.
If you fill the blender to start with, it will be difficult to blend the smoothie. As you blend, you may have to occasionally stop and stir, shake, or use your blender’s tamper to mix the ingredients.
