Orange Banana Smoothie Ingredients

  • Bananas – Slice a couple of bananas into chunks and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  • Milk – You can use any type of milk you enjoy, including regular milk, unsweetened almond milk or oat milk. Coconut milk would add a tropical flair to your smoothie.
  • Plain Yogurt – To thicken up your smoothie a bit. Feel free to use a flavored yogurt to sweeten it up a bit.
  • Orange juice – freshly squeezed or from a bottle, your choice. Remember that orange juice can contain a lot of sugar, so if you want to keep the calories low, choose a sugar-free or low-sugar juice.
  • Ice – Optional to thicken the smoothie and provide a more slushy texture if you prefer.

How To Make A Smoothie

Any smoothie starts with your choice of fruit or veggies and some milk, yogurt or juice. You can easily customize the ingredients with your favorite things.

  • Combine orange juice, milk, yogurt, and ice cubes in a high-speed blender. I recommend a Vitamix or Ninja.
  • Add banana and blend until smooth and frothy.
  • Taste and add a sweetener like honey or agave if desired.
  • Serve immediately.

FAQs

How do you store leftover smoothies?

You can cover and place leftover smoothie in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. It won’t be as frothy and thick but it will still be tasty.

Can you freeze leftover smoothies?

Freezing smoothies is a great way to meal prep! Blend a big batch of smoothies and pour into individual serving containers. Freeze for up to 3 months, and thaw overnight in the fridge to have your smoothie ready for breakfast!

What other fruits can I use besides banana?

Frozen mango, strawberries, blueberries, or even melon will work in place of the banana.

Pro Tips

  • If you can, use frozen fruit to get a slushy texture. If you only have fresh fruit, you may need some ice.
  • To lighten the calories, use low sugar orange juice, or fresh squeezed.
  • Freeze the banana chunks for 30 minutes for a more slushy texture.
  • For a less prominent banana flavor, use under-ripe bananas.
  • Feel free to add protein powder, chia seeds or even veggies like spinach or carrots.
  • Always start with liquids to help your blender work more efficiently.
