This energy-boosting banana smoothie has a hint of cinnamon and can easily be made vegan by using dairy-free milk.
Each serving provides 335 kcal, 12g protein, 52g carbohydrates (of which 49g sugars), 8g fat (of which 5g saturates), 6g fibre and 0.3g salt.
Place all of the ingredients in a blender, adding the coconut oil last (if using). Start to blend at a low speed, gradually increasing until the smoothie is thick and creamy.
Pour into a chilled glass and serve.
Frozen bananas chill the smoothie and help to make it extra thick and creamy. If you have a surplus of ripe bananas, or you make a lot of smoothies, keep a sealed bag of peeled and sliced bananas in the freezer ready to use.
Adding ice will dilute the flavour of the smoothie. Instead, use chilled ingredients and pop your glass in the freezer for 30 minutes before serving.
