Using frozen bananas in smoothies

If you are like me, you often have some leftover bananas in your kitchen. Instead of throwing them away when they reach near-ripe point, I usually wrap them up and put them in the freezer to enjoy in a variety of recipes. When frozen and then added to a smoothie, a banana gives a delicious ice cream-like texture.

In this amazing mango and banana smoothie, they add just the right level of sweetness and density, plus fiber, digestive support, and blood sugar regulation.

How to make a mango and banana smoothie

Making this healthy mango and banana smoothie is so simple! Simply put all the ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Try the smoothie and add extra milk if it is too thick, or add a sweetener like honey or maple if it is not sweet enough for you. The recipe is enough for two 12-ounce cups, which is what is shown.

Tips for making this mango and banana smoothie

  • Make sure that at least one of the items is frozen. I usually use frozen bananas, but you can also freeze cauliflower or mangoes. This really helps thicken the smoothie and cool it undiluted with ice cubes.
  • Drink this smoothie as soon as you do. Once the ingredients are oxidized, they begin to lose their nutritional values. If you can't drink it right away, keep it sealed in the cup or transfer it to a mason jar for up to 24 hours.
  • Use it on ripe bananas for your smoothie. Overripe bananas are naturally sweeter, but they also contain more antioxidants than overripe ones. And in this way, there is no need to add sweetener.
  • Use a high speed blender. There is nothing worse than drinking a smoothie and putting chunks in your mouth! If you don't have a high speed blender, I recommend shaking it once in a while with a long spoon and mixing for another minute.

Frequent questions

For how long should you mix a smoothie?

Mix all ingredients for about 60 seconds so that all ingredients break and combine well. If you are using a low speed blender, you may need to mix for an additional minute.

Can you taste the cauliflower in this smoothie?

Cauliflower is a very bland vegetable, so when combined with the other ingredients in this smoothie you can't taste everything. Cauliflower is rich in fiber, so it will keep you full longer. It's a great way to introduce additional vegetables to your family's diet!

Do you add ice to this mango and banana smoothie?

Because you use frozen banana and cauliflower in this smoothie, there's no need to add ice. If you add ice, it will dilute and dilute the drink. However, if none of the ingredients are frozen, you can add 1-2 ice cubes.
