Honey Banana Smoothie with Nutmeg Spice
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.
Vitamin A: 12%
Vitamin C: 19%
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 consiste
- 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.
