Honey Banana Smoothie with Nutmeg Spice

4

Banana goes very well with honey, as most fruits do, but banana and nutmeg also blend very well. Consider making a boring banana smoothie something to talk about and spice it up with nutmeg and indulge your sweet tooth with a bit o’ honey. Not exactly a diet smoothie, but they don’t all have to be, right? On the other hand, it only contains 344 calories. That is using low-fat milk and 1 teaspoon of honey.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana, diced (frozen for a thicker smoothie)
  • 6 ounces low-fat natural vanilla yogurt
  • 1-2 teaspoons honey (or to your taste)
  • 8 ounces cold milk (low fat or soy may be used)
  • A dash of Nutmeg (1/8 teaspoon)
  • couple of ice cube, if needed for a thicker consistency

Okay, now the fun part, making the smoothie. Add your liquid first, then your yogurt, then the solids. Blend on low speed gradually increasing the speed then for the final 30 seconds let it rip on high. It adds to the volume and lightness of the smoothie. And for an added flavor bonus add some almond slivers to the mix before you blend your smoothie.

        Not at all. Most smoothies are high in natural fruit sugars. Leave out the honey if you want to reduce the sugars more. Even removing the honey only brings the sugars down to 38.2g. Switch the low-fat milk with soy or almond milk to reduce the sugars more. But don’t think the natural sugars from the fruit and milk fat are the same as soda’s sugar. They are not.
