Warm Banana Smoothie

Warm Banana Smoothie

If you liked cozying up with our recent feature recipe on Clean Cuisine for the Hot Apple Smoothie you are sure to love this one…especially if you have a weakness for warm banana nut bread! I’m guessing a lot of people must like banana bread a whole lot because I recently heard on the TODAY Show that it was actually one of the top 5 recipes Googled in 2011. This is really not surprising since I don’t know a single person who doesn’t like banana bread. What does surprise me though is when I repeatedly get asked these 2 questions….

“Are Bananas Good for You?”

“Are Bananas Fattening?”

“Are bananas good for you?” is truly a question I am asked a lot. In fact, I am shocked at how frequently this question arrives in my inbox! And every bit as surprising is frequently-asked-banana-question #2; “Are bananas fattening?” Here’s the deal; ALL fruits are healthy!! There is absolutely no such thing as a “fattening” fruit (or a “fattening” or unhealthy vegetable either for that matter.) But please read the full scoop on banana nutrition here: “Are Bananas Good for You?”

Once you get over your fear of bananas you can warm up with this Warm Banana Smoothie ;) Oh! and if you have children I promise they will love it too. My 10-year old not only loves it, he can now even make it himself. Sure beats cookies as an afternoon snack!

Warm Banana Smoothie

Serves: 1

  • ¾ cup hot water
  • 1 peeled ripe banana
  • 3 tablespoons chopped raw walnuts
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ inch knob fresh ginger
  • 2 or 3 pitted organic dates
  1.  Place all ingredients in a high speed blender (such as a Vitamix) and process until smooth and creamy. Serve warm.

WARNING!  I have a non-glass blender jar as part of my Vitamix high speed blender, but if you have a glass blender jar you need to be extra careful that you let the ingredients cool to almost room temperature before you put them in the glass jar otherwise the glass could explode and cause serious injury.
