Banana Crunch Breakfast Smoothie

Ingredients for your crunchy breakfast smoothie:

Be sure to comment how this turned out for you. It can seem weird drinking granola, but it really just gives the drink a nice texture. You also might want to try adding 1/4 or 1/2 cup of plain yogurt to add a bit of tart flavor or to help smooth it out.

    I love banana smoothies. They make the smoothie thicker and tastier and are perfect for breakfast!

    Thanks!

    I decided I wanted to start detoxing a bit after the xmas splurge on goodies and I just made this for my breakfast. It is so quick and easy to make and tastes delicious. Top marks. For lunch I will be having something similar but with more fruits for substance!

    Enjoying for the first time right now.
    I must say it is absolutely delicious.

    Blended smoothie first, then added strawberries, and just used the ‘chop’ feature for a few turns, and it left perfect little chunks!

    Thankyou for this!
    Makes my day!

    This smoothie is great! I skipped the granola but added 1/2 cup of fat free vanilla yogurt. Yum! Best smoothie!

  • KelBell

    I just tried this, and will be having it for breakfast this week! I’m an avid tennis player and am looking to work out early in the morning to better my game. This will be a great finish! Especially since I usually skip breakfast (shame on me). I use local honey in this smoothie, so it will lessen my eye allergy symptoms, too. Splendid!!!

    I’ll have to try this. It looks like an interesting idea to mix cereal in with a smoothie. It would be a good idea for a quick breakfast.

    Absolutely delicious! I tried this with a handful of blueberries and a scoop of protein powder this morning, and I used Kellogg’s Mueslix cereal instead of granola. It was sweet enough without the honey (I didn’t have any honey so I went without it). The banana makes it sweet enough without any added sugar. I loved the crunchy texture, and it was very tasty and filling. With 1% milk it came to 485 calories on my calorie counter (but that’s with the vegetarian protein powder, which was 110 calories). A well-rounded, quick and yummy way to start your day!

    This turned out much better than we thought. We didn’t think it would be terrible, but it was surprisingly delicious. We used Kashi Coco Beach Granola cereal and it adds a wonderful coconut/walnut-y flavor. Works well with additional fruits like raspberries and blueberries

  • Haley

    This smoothie was actually quite delicious! I used all the ingredients provided, but added a little bit more honey (sweet tooth!). I’ll have to try it with added berries!
    All in all a recommended breakfast smoothie!

  • Tracey

    I did a calorie analysis on this and it comes out to over 500 calories. how can it be a diet food?Yes, I did make this and it is delicious, but the high calories make it a hard sell.

      We didn’t state it was diet or categorize it as diet. It is under the category of breakfast smoothies, not diet smoothies. Not all smoothies are for dieting, of course.

    I made this first time I used fiberone cereal one tsp honey but will leave honey out next time oh and used almond milk

  • syd

    could you make this ahead of time to freeze and defrost a scoop each day?

  • The Curvy Girl

    I just made this recipe and I really like it! Thanks for the idea!

  • LexxVette

    I made this for breakfast but with the following tweaks (I doubled it):

    2 Frozen bananas
    1 cup french vanilla granola (Kashi, maybe?)
    2 cups almond milk
    3/4 cups frozen mixed berries (raspberries, blackberries and strawberries)
    3 tablespoons agave syrup

    It came out a bit too sweet, so I think I’m going to cut out the agave syrup next time…..I never would have thought to put granola in a smoothie, but it wasn’t too bad!

    Love this smoothie! I used almond milk instead, added protien powder.. and about 1mL of Vanilla Extract! AMAZING!
