Apple Banana Smoothie Recipe
Like smoothies? I love smoothies. The first smoothie I ever had as a child was an apple banana combination. I have modified the original recipe and I’ve even added in a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter, but it’s this basic blend of apples and bananas that started my love for these kind of blended drinks.
I/we are always on the run and I have found smoothies to be a very helpful and healthful way to get in our fruits and veggies in with a busy lifestyle.
Even when we aren’t running out the door, I find two of my kids leaning towards a smoothie for a snack, which is fine with me. The problem is getting everyone to put their dirty dishes in the dishwasher immediately (lol).
Here is a printable version of the recipe for you and then after you have tried this recipe, peek below to find a whole different blend!
- 1 apple
- 1 banana
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup milk (or your favorite alternative)
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Wash the apple. Peel, core, slice and dice the apple. Add it to the blender pitcher.
Peel and add the banana to the blender.
Add in the ice, milk, peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon.
Blend the ingredients well and serve.
WAIT, Did you need this peanut free? I’ve got you covered! Swap the peanut butter for WOWButter®; it’s a peanut and tree nut free peanut butter alternative. You can find it in the allergy friendly aisle at your Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarket.
Or, Dairy Free? Swap the milk with your favorite dairy free alternative. I LOVE the almond milk with a hint of honey as a swap for this recipe if you don’t have a nut allergy. Always choose what fits your dietary needs!
No Ice? Simply put a banana in the freezer the night before and swap the frozen banana for the ice in the recipe.
