How to use bananas in smoothies

Bananas are a versatile and delicious ingredient for smoothies, offering natural sweetness and a creamy texture. Here are some tips and tricks for using bananas in smoothies:

  • Choosing ripe bananas: Opt for ripe bananas, with darker skin and black spots. These are sweeter and more aromatic, offering a richer taste to your smoothie.
  • Freezing bananas: If you have very ripe bananas, with spotted skin, and you don’t want to eat them right away, you can peel them, cut them into cubes and freeze them in a ziplock bag. Then, you can use them to prepare your favorite smoothie or a delicious banana ice cream. You simply put them frozen in the blender and you will get a creamy ice cream in just a few minutes!
  • Adding to the smoothie: Add the diced bananas to the blender along with the other ingredients of the smoothie. If you use frozen bananas, you won’t need to add ice cubes.
  • Combining with other fruits: Bananas can be combined with a variety of other fruits in smoothies, such as strawberries, mangoes, pineapples, etc. Choose combinations that complement each other in terms of taste and texture. But be careful when you combine them with berries, because a recent study showed that bananas decrease the absorption of flavonoids from berries when they are blended together.
  • Flavoring: To add more flavor and freshness to the smoothie, you can add other ingredients such as vanilla, cinnamon, fresh ginger or mint leaves.
  • Personalization: Experiment with various ingredients and proportions to get the perfect smoothie according to your preferences. You can also add other nutrients such as chia seeds, flax seeds or oats to get a more satisfying and nutritious smoothie.

With these tips and tricks, you will be able to prepare delicious and healthy banana smoothies, perfect to start your day or to cool off after training!

Smoothie seeds mix

How to make a fiber-rich seed mix for your smoothie

To make a seed mix rich in Omega 3 for your smoothie, you can use the combination of seeds below:

  • Flax seeds: Add whole or ground flax seeds to the blender. Flax seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
  • Poppy seeds: Includes poppy seeds to give you extra protein and nutrients. They can be added whole or ground.
  • Sesame seeds: Sesame seeds are a rich source of magnesium, iron and copper, and their addition will give the smoothie a rich taste.
  • Sunflower seeds: These seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, antioxidants and healthy fats. You can add whole or ground seeds to your smoothie mix.
  • Chia seeds: Add chia seeds to give your smoothie a thicker consistency and to benefit from omega-3, protein and fiber.
  • Expanded amaranth: Amaranth is a rich source of complete proteins, fibers and minerals. Add expanded amaranth to the smoothie to give it extra texture and nutrients.

Combine these seeds in balanced proportions, preferably according to your preferences and nutritional needs. You can adjust the quantities according to your preference

  • Add in blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!


Bananas with black spots are perfect for this; I read an article a couple of days ago and I found out that the riper bananas are the better! They seem to develop a certain enzyme which is anti-carcinogenic and really good for your health! So don’t throw away those ugly bananas! Store them in your freezer or make this smoothie right away!

Had some super ripe, black-spot bananas on the kitchen counter today and I wanted to just throw them away, but I decided to try this instead. I'm so glad I did! It was amazing! Thank you, Ruxandra!

Can this smoothie be refrigerated for 2 or 3days at a time or must it be made fresh each morning


Tuesday 2nd of June 2015

Yes, it can be refrigerated for a couple of days. Of course, it is best fresh, but for 1-2 days it's ok refrigerated as well.
