Low FODMAP Banana Bread Smoothie
Serves: 1
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: No cooking required

When you're craving sweets but a piece of fruit isn't cutting it - this smoothie! Inspired by a deliciously soft, rich slice of spiced banana bread, this healthy smoothie can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or hey, why not even dessert!) 

 
ingredients

1 firm (slightly green) banana, peeled, sliced and frozen

112 g 4 oz

½ cup unsweetened almond milk (calcium-fortified)

175 g 6.2 oz

¼ cup rolled oats

30 g 1 oz

¼ cup plain low-fat Greek yoghurt*

65 g 2.3 oz

½ tsp vanilla essence

2.5 g 0.09 oz

1 pinch of cinnamon

1 pinch of nutmeg

½ tsp maple syrup (optional - if you like a sweeter smoothie)

6.3 g 0.2 oz

Method

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately! 


Hints

  • * Use a lactose free variety of Greek yoghurt if you malabsorb lactose. 
  • Simply omit yoghurt to make this smoothie suitable for vegans, or for an even more decadent twist, add 1 tsp of natural peanut butter! 
  • Using slightly green bananas boosts the resistant starch (natural prebiotic) content of your smoothie!
