I recently purchased Ninja Master Prep from Amazon.com primarily to make smoothies. Michael no longer likes my “go-to” spinach smoothies so he randomly asked me to make a banana orange juice smoothie for him. I did…and it tasted great. Michael is my little foodie and he loves to eat a variety of food. However, he is not a big fan of fruit. Usually when I put a piece of fruit in his lunchbox in the morning it comes right back to me at the end of the day! That is why I now give Michael a banana orange juice smoothie as a healthy(ish) after school snack. (I also like the fact that I can use ripe bananas in this smoothie. Now, I no longer have to only use them in banana bread.)
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup mashed banana (approximately 2 bananas)
- 1 cup ice
- Place the orange juice, bananas and ice in the blender.
- Blend everything together until it reaches your desired consistency.
- Pour into 2 cups and enjoy!
That was easy, right?
