No matter when or where you are, if you need an on-the-go snack, a light breakfast, or a brunch dish, this smoothie is exactly what you need. With a handful of ingredients, a blender, and 15 minutes of your time, this recipe could not be any simpler. Give it a go!


  • Peel bananas and cut them into small pieces. Put them in a blender with the other ingredients.
  • Blend at the highest speed for approx. 45 seconds or until the ice is crushed.
  • Taste to see if the smoothie needs more sweetness or tang. Divide it into 4 cold glasses.
  • Garnish with mint leaves and serve immediately.

Save time and prepare ahead! Banana smoothies can be made in advance and left to sit in the fridge for about ½ hour. Blend the mixture for a few seconds right before serving. A pro tip is to freeze the banana before adding it to the blender with the other ingredients. It will make the drink cool and frothy and increase its thickness. If you peel and slice the bananas before freezing, they will blend more easily. We recommend going with ripe bananas, which have more flavour to them. But if you find yourself with a drink that is too sweet for your liking, you can add a bit more lime juice to balance it.

How long does a banana smoothie last in the fridge?
A banana smoothie can last in the fridge for up to 2 days, after which it will change its taste and texture. Banana smoothies always taste – and look – best fresh, but if you want to enjoy them later, they need to be refrigerated. Transfer the smoothie to a container or jar and cover it with a lid to keep the smoothie fresh for longer. It will start to brown a bit, but the lime juice will prevent it from happening too fast, and it will not affect the flavour.
How do you make a banana smoothie without a blender?
Do not despair if you do not have a blender. You can still enjoy a cold banana smoothie. Though the texture may be slightly different without a blender, it will still be delicious. Choose ripe bananas and mash them with a spoon or fork. Once the bananas have a puree-like texture add milk, lime juice, milk, and icing sugar and stir well. Pour the mixture into a large jar, add ice and seal it tight. Shake the banana smoothie for about 30 seconds until everything is well combined. Pour it into a glass and enjoy.
How to freeze banana for smoothie?
Freeze bananas for a deliciously rich and creamy texture in the banana smoothie. Go with ripe bananas that have more flavour and the right amount of sweetness. Peel the bananas and cut them into thin slices. Lay the slices next to each other on a tray and place the tray in the freezer to flash-freeze them. Once they are frozen solid, transfer them to a freezer bag and pop them back in the freezer until you need them.

Creamy banana smoothie with yoghurt

Bananas are a go-to for smoothies as they blend easily and provide a deliciously creamy texture when blended with Greek yoghurt. The long yellow fruit brings the perfect amount of sweetness to the Greek yoghurt banana smoothie. We suggest you pick ripe bananas with brown spots on the yellow peel. They provide a ton of taste to the smoothie and balance the tangy yoghurt flavour. A splash of lime juice adds a fresh kick to the cold drink and ties all the flavours together.

Shake up the recipe and make a chai banana smoothie with warm exotic spices like cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, and ground black pepper. Use only ½-1 teaspoon of each as a start, and a bit less of the most potent ones like ginger and nutmeg and add a bit more if you feel like it. The best banana chai smoothie has a balanced spiciness that adds a small kick to the sweet and creamy banana. For a luxurious touch, finish with homemade caramel sauce drizzled on top with a few slices of fresh banana and a light sprinkle of chopped dark chocolate.
