In the Kitchen is where you will find all my recipes and adapted recipes, tried, tested, and eaten.

One of my favorite quick meals is the infamous smoothie. They are really easy to make and you can basically swap in and out any of your favorite fruits. My go-to? A banana smoothie. It’s crazy cos I am pretty sure I could never eat 3 bananas in a row, but somehow when they’re liquefied it’s all good. Here’s how I make mine:

Banana Smoothie

3 bananas
a cup of soy milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cardamom spice* (unfortunately I was missing this so my smoothie didn’t have that nice “kick,” but was still very tasty.)
a few squirts of sweetener

001: pour a cup of milk into a blender or blending cup (used with a hand held blender).
002: Break up the bananas and throw them in.
003: Add the spices and a few squirts of sweetener. Blend.
004: Pour into a glass and enjoy!

*Add cardamon to upgrade your already amazing banana smoothie to a spicy chai banana smoothie.

  • Yum! I have a smoothie as least five mornings a day, always with a banana and whatever else I have around… they are the best!

  • Uli

    This bowl is so cute! Where did you get it from? And yes, banana shake sounds delicious. I sometimes add raspberries, just because I love them so much x


  • Yay for banana smoothies! I have one every morning, and also mix in some orange juice from time to time and oatmeal, a real breakfast to go ;)

  • Wow three bananas at once! Experimenting with smoothies sounds so fun but I don’t have a blender unfortunately :(

    I LOVE banana smoothies but make them very different to you, going to try out your way next time. Also your cat bowl is the cutest!

  • yum! Sounds delicious.
    If that cute little bowl goes missing, don’t worry. I have it ;) lol

  • Kati

    Yes, banana shake is always good!

    Have a great day,

  • I wouldn’t be able to eat three bananas in one sitting either! I heard that’s the really good thing about shakes, you can cram as many fruits and veg as you’d like and somehow you’re able to down it all in one sitting, haha.

  • lovely. during the summer mornings we always had smoothies. so filling and healthy too!

  • Simple smoothies are my favourite! I just got a blender for Christmas so I’m only really starting to drink smoothies regularly now (I know, I’m so late to this). I started out with really complicated ones with a lot of ingredients, but now I’m realizing that the best ones are always the most simple. Can’t wait to try this! I have a ton of cardamom in my pantry too :)

    Oh, and your kitty measuring cups are too cute!

  • Wow, 3 bananas in a smoothie, that’s a record for me! But you are absolutely right about it being in liquid form. Who would know right? =)


  • life is a shoe

    yum this looks great! Now i”m really craving a banana milkshake!


  • This banana smoothie looks so delicious and I like that you make it with soy milk! Yummy!


  • Hi! I’m so tickled we found each other! :) I loved what you said about not eating three bananas in a row! So true, right? This looks so good, and I love your sweet cat bowl! :) My son used to have smoothies for breakfast every morning, but we haven’t done that for ages. Maybe once it gets warmer, we’ll both start again.

    My son is taking German in school, and can’t wait for his exchange trip to Berlin and other spots. We head to Stockholm this summer and he’s been trying to talk us into a side trip! ;) He’s ready!
