Almond and Banana Smoothie

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is a healthy smoothie full of nutritious goodness that can help in controlling weight, diabetes, asthma and help to reduce blood pressure.  You can put in sugar, but I like to keep it healthy and not add any. To persuade the kids all you need to do is add a couple of strawberries to make it a pink blush color.

Servings 2-3


  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 500ml milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond essence, optional


  1. Peel the banana and place in a blender with the almonds and milk and almond essence and couple of strawberries if using.

Serve in tall glasses, over ice if you like.
