Banana Chai Smoothie

banana chai
A friend from my old home town has recently had her second baby, a precious little baby boy. He was eager to meet his family and arrived a little earlier than expected. Her story has made me think of my own mum, of my own birth. I was a tiny premature baby, and my mum had an anxious few weeks before and after my birth. It makes me realise how blessed I am to have my two healthy babies.
I know my friend has been enjoying our recipes and whipping up our pina colada for breakfast. When you have both a new born and a toddler in the house meals and snacks need to be quick, easy and delicious! This banana chai smoothie is one that we are really enjoying at the moment, I hope she likes it too.

Banana Chai Smoothie

2 frozen bananas

2 tablespoons coconut milk

1/4 teaspoon each of vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and ginger

1 cup of water

Place all ingredients into your blender, blend until smooth. Enjoy!

Hi there,
Can you make this with unfrozen bananas? Also are the spices ground?
Thanks! 🙂

Hi there,
Probably a silly question, but the vanilla you use, is it vanilla essence? Vanilla seeds fresh from a bean? And the ginger – fresh grated ginger? (I’m not much of a ginger user so I have no idea!)
Thanks so much. This sounds delish!

Sorry Silvia, it is ground ginger. The vanilla I use is called natural concentrated vanilla extract, either beans, paste or essence will also work. I hope this helps. Thanks, Bianca

Hi, how do you freeze your bananas? This is probably a really naff question, but I just threw 2 bananas in the freezer and now I have them out and I can’t peel them or anything (woops!) if I peel first before freezing they wont be that yukky brown colour? Total Noob here =)

Hi Paula, not a silly question at all!! Yes, peel first. You can put them into freezer bags to stop them going icy if you want to, they wont go brown, the freezing process stops this. I hope this helps. Bianca. x

[…] 12. Banana Chai Smoothie If you love the taste of chai you’ll love this banana chai smoothie. It actually doesn’t use any chai tea, which is interesting. It has you using ingredients that once combined will provide the taste of chai. Cinnamon, cloves, and ginger get the call, each providing their own healthy benefits and adding to the overall nutritional breakdown of this smoothie. The bananas give you plenty of potassium and fiber, and the coconut milk makes a great stand-in for milk or yogurt, helping you avoid dairy. […]

Hi Bianca, I have followed you for ages on Instagram and am currently completely overhauling my diet due to health issues. Your recipes are a godsend!! Quick (probably stupid) question. I am cutting out dairy and a lot of recipes call for coconut milk…is this the coconut milk in a can you would use in curries or the one in a carton (ie Sanitarium) or are the one and the same?

Hi Dawn, thank YOU, I am glad you like the recipes and that my little space has helped you.
It isn’t a silly question at all. I refer to the one in the can in the asian section of the shops. I hope this helps.
