10 min
Start your day with a refreshing and delicious orange smoothie with banana. It combines the tangy taste of orange juice with the sweet, creamy texture of banana, enhanced with a touch of honey for sweetness. Milk and yogurt create a smooth, light texture that is both satisfying and tasty. It is ideal for kick-starting your day with a burst of flavour, making it the perfect on-the-go meal to keep you going until lunch.


Step 1
  • Peel the banana and cut it into pieces.
Step 2
  • Blend all ingredients and pour into glasses.
Step 3
  • Optionally drizzle over honey and top with bee pollen. Serve immediately.

If the smoothie is too thick, adjust the consistency with a little more milk or orange juice until it is just right. Use frozen banana pieces instead of fresh ones for an extra chilled feel. Avoid over-blending the ingredients to maintain a bit of thickness, which makes it more satisfying.

Try a refreshing orange smoothie with banana

Imagine the perfect blend of citrusy flavour and creamy sweetness in a glass. That is exactly what you get with this orange smoothie recipe accentuated with ripe banana. The banana adds a velvety texture and gives the smoothie a natural sweetness. The mellow flavour perfectly complements the vibrant tang of concentrated orange juice. The orange juice offers a revitalising burst that awakens the senses, while the banana provides just the right amount of sweetness.

Delightful sweetness imparted by honey

Sweet honey is nature's liquid gold. But in this recipe, it is more than just a sweetener; it adds a delightful complexity to the orange and banana smoothie. The floral undertones introduce a subtle richness that bridges the gap between the citrusy sharpness of the orange and the creamy sweetness of the banana. With just a drizzle of honey, the smoothie is elevated to a luxurious experience.

Light and airy with milk and yogurt

Milk and yogurt transform the orange smoothie into a light and airy delight. Milk adds a silky smoothness that enhances the body, providing a satisfying fullness without feeling heavy. Yogurt, on the other hand, introduces a delightful tang that complements the citrus notes of the orange. Together, they create a creamy and refreshing texture, striking the perfect balance between indulgence and lightness. Do you love smoothies as much as we do?

Experiment with different fruits and berries

While the classic combination of orange and banana is undeniably delicious, many more flavours are waiting to be explored. So why not try and incorporate different fruits to make a few subtle changes to the flavour of the orange smoothie? Try adding a handful of strawberries for a burst of freshness or a few chunks of pineapple to enhance the tropical vibe of the drink. Mango can also be a fantastic addition, as it lends an exotic sweetness that pairs beautifully with the citrusy notes of the orange juice. For a more complex flavour, a touch of lime or lemon juice can introduce an exciting zesty twist.
