Banana Coconut Smoothie

Banana Coconut Smoothie recipe by OneWholesomeMeal

Who doesn’t like starting their day with a refreshing glass of smoothie?

This Banana Coconut Smoothie is super simple to put together. Power-packed with healthy micro and macronutrients and with a hint of mint, it could almost be your summertime panacea. Works perfectly for those afternoon hunger pangs too.

While I know there are smoothies that use coconut water for the coconut flavor, in my recipe, I went with freshly shredded coconut. It is high on the fat content, so please keep it to just 2-3 tablespoons. It adds a whole lot of natural flavor to the smoothie. Here are all the ingredients that you will need:

  1.  2 Bananas which are preferably very ripe
  2. A little less than one cup of milk. Plus some extra to adjust the thickness later. You may use almond milk, soy milk, or cow’s milk.
  3. About 2 tablespoons of freshly shredded coconut. You can add a bit more if you really like coconut flavor.
  4. 4 to 5 crushed mint leaves. This is optional.
  5. 1/2 teaspoon of cardamom powder
  6. For sweetness, you may rely on the bananas or add 1/2 teaspoon of sugar or jaggery.
