  • 1 cup milk (dairy or nondairy)
  • 1 cup frozen banana
  • 1 fresh ripe banana
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds (optional)


  • Add the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend, starting on low and working up to high to make a very smooth mixture. (Use the stick that came with the blender, if needed, to help the mixture get going.)


Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 24 hours. It will have more of a drinkable yogurt consistency when stored.
Use dairy or nondairy milk as you like.
Add a handful of spinach to make this a green smoothie.
Add 1-2 tablespoons peanut or almond butter for additional flavor.
Serve in a straw cup, open cup, or reusable pouch.
