In winter when most fruits are not in season this simple yet delicious banana smoothie is great. These simple variations let you have it your way so its really a 4 in 1 recipe!
2 ripe bananas
1 can of full fat coconut milk
blend in blender.
optional add ons: if you like things sweeter add either another banana, coconut water or a tsp of maple syrup or honey. For the maple syrup version add a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon for extra flavor.
or if protein is desired add a handful of blanched sliced almonds or a tsp of nutbutter (also nice with the cinnamon) or a scoop of protein powder and some ice(since the protein powder will add sweetness you wont need sweetener)
or to make it a dairy free banana lassi: add a good pinch of cardamom, crushed ice and a 1/4 cup coconut yogurt. if more sweetness is desired add another banana or coconut water or sweetener. Banana lassis can also be done with 1/2 a tsp of rosewater and with other yogurt and milk, plant based or not, not only with coconut milk and coconut yogurt .
for a treat: add vanilla coconut ice cream and a drop of vanilla
