I don't know about you, but when I get up in the morning, I crave my fruit smoothies. I've gotten into the habit of making it a part of my daily routine because there are so many benefits to drinking them. Especially first thing in the morning. When you wake up, your body is in a state of semi-dehydration. Smoothies hydrate your body as well as give you lots of vitamins and minerals.
What ingredients are in an Banana Orange Smoothie?
- Fresh oranges: Using the flesh of fresh oranges adds extra fiber to the smoothie. If you do not have fresh oranges, ½ cup of orange juice can be substituted.
- Frozen banana: The frozen bananas give a smooth, creamy texture to smoothies that would normally come from ice cubes.
- Vanilla yogurt: Pick from either non-dairy or regular yogurt. I prefer to use almond yogurt when possible in recipes.
- Milk: Whether you choose non-dairy or regular cow's milk, either will work in smoothies.
- Sweetener: Sweet Drops Vanilla Creme is my personal preference because it is made from natural stevia leaf and has a vanilla flavor that makes this smoothie tastes like an orange creamsicle pop!
- Fresh grated ginger: Freshly grated ginger is totally optional but I recommend it because it gives this orange smoothie a fresh zing flavor!
How do you make a Banana Orange Smoothie?
This is a simple healthy smoothie that is ready in less than 10 minutes!
Start out by peeling a couple of fresh oranges. Toss them into a high speed blender along with the frozen banana, yogurt, milk, ginger and stevia. Blend on high for about 2 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Give it a taste to see if you'd like it sweeter. If so, just add a few more drops of stevia and blend.
Pour it into a large glass and enjoy!
