If you love the flavors of Banana Bread but want to keep it healthy, this Dairy Free Smoothie Recipe is for you!
I am a Hamilton Beach Brand Ambassador, however, all opinions are 100%mine.
We drink a lot of smoothies at my house! I have been making healthy smoothies for my daughter from the first moment that she could sip through a straw.
I reached out to Hamilton Beach because I love my HB Ice Cream Maker so much! I connected with them just in time for #Smoovember. The entire month of November is dedicated to smoothies promoting the Smoothie Smart Blender and the Single Serve Personal Blender.
Hamilton Beach sent me two blenders to try out and they are also supplying two blenders for the giveaway below! And boy did I put this Smoothie Smart Blender to the test! I have been using this blender almost daily . . . it is my new kitchen bestie!
This Smoothie Smart Blender crushes ice like a Beast! It also has an Auto-Smoothie button that is designed to create the perfect blending action. It pulses and changes speeds for 45 seconds then automatically shuts off at the end of the cycle. My favorite thing about the Smoothie Smart Blender is the no-mess pour spout . . . I really need that!
I was also impressed with the Single Serve Personal Blender. It crushes ice without a problem and is perfect for a rushed morning coffee or breakfast smoothie on the go. Blend your frozen coffee or smoothie, pop on the travel lid and run out the door to start your day!
I usually add Greek yogurt to my smoothies for protein and creaminess. But, I decided that it was time to create a Dairy Free Smoothie Recipe.
This Banana Bread Smoothie gets it’s protein and creaminess from silken tofu! If you are not the tofu type, no worries. Silken tofu has less flavor than Greek yogurt and it blends right into the smoothie. You won’t even notice it’s there . . . For Real! If you couldn’t care less about dairy free, go ahead and use Greek yogurt instead of tofu if you prefer.
For this smoothie you want extra ripe bananas. The more brown speckles the better! So this is a great way to use up your over-ripe bananas. If you keep bananas in your freezer I’m sure those will work too.
