Hello lovely ladies! Hope you all are doing great!
This is my very first post for BnB and I’m super excited about it. I was thinking of what to share with you through my first write-up and then I thought why don’t share the recipe of this super healthy and super healing smoothie? After all, ‘a healthy you’ actually means ‘a beautiful you’! Isn’t it? :-)
Well, I’ve been an ardent fan of this delicious natural remedy since last few years. It is extremely easy and can be prepared in less than 10 minutes, which is a true bliss for lazy people like me. Let’s first take a look at the recipe and then get familiar with its nutritional as well as healing benefits :
Easy and Healing Banana-Yogurt Smoothie Recipe
Preparation Time Required: 5 minutes
Cooking Time Required: 2 minutes
Total Time Required: 7 minutes
Yields: 1 large glass
(a) Ingredients Needed :
- Ripe banana – 2 small
- Vanilla yogurt – 150 gm.
- Ginger root – 1”
- Pure honey – 1 tablespoon
(b) Instructions To Follow :
1. Wash and peel off the bananas and the piece of ginger root.
2. Make small slices of the bananas.
3. Grate the ginger root roughly.
4. Now, put all the ingredients inside a blender and blend until a smooth, creamy mixture is
5. Pour it into a tall serving glass.
6. Add a straw and serve.
Whether you take two small bananas or a large one, make sure that they are ripe enough.
I’ve used vanilla yogurt to add the mild flavor of vanilla to the smoothie. There are plenty of choices for flavored yogurt and you are absolutely free to pick your favorite one.
Using pure organic honey is always the best option. For a non-organic alternative, simply use Dabur honey.
Try to grate the ginger right before preparing the smoothie. Freshly grated ginger is known to be the best for its flavor and qualities.
If you want your smoothie to be chilled and refreshing, add a few ice cubes to it prior to serving.

It is not only very delicious, but also highly nutritious. In fact, you can call it a ‘nutrition-packed potion’ that can make everyone fall in love with its taste and flavor immediately.
