Bananas & Cream Smoothie
This banana and cream smoothie is packed full of nutrients but tastes like a dessert. The creamy thick texture allows it to be eaten with a spoon or drunk if you prefer. The honey, vanilla and banana combine to make a light yet decadent taste that is healthy yet satisfying and completely guilt free.
Using frozen bananas avoids adding ice to the smoothie which helps to maintain consistency without watering it down and also ensures that it is chilled to the perfect serving temperature.
Soy milk does not contain lactose which means it is a non-dairy substitute for those with allergies or intolerance. Be aware that some Greek yogurt does contain lactose so if you are aiming for a dairy-free smoothie make sure you chose the appropriate lactose free version. If you do not have any intolerance you can use Greek yogurt if you choose.
