Banana-Orange Smoothie

I tried to think of a witty portmanteau for this one. Banorange? Bananorange? Orangana? I couldn't come up with anything good, so the boring name stays.

Like the name says, this is just a simple recipe for a banana and orange smoothie. Using only four ingredients, this smoothie comes in at under 300 calories, 0 grams of fat, and a whopping 20 grams of protein. This recipe yields a 24-ounce smoothie, so you can enjoy half of it now, and half later - perfect for after a good run, or even as a quick breakfast to start the day! 


Banana-Orange Smoothie

Ingredients:
1 medium banana, frozen
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup (1 6oz container) nonfat plain yogurt (you could also use vanilla yogurt!)
1/2 Tbsp honey 

Combine the ingredients in a blender and pulse/blend until thick and creamy.

  1. Hi, I found your blog by the way of Pinterest. Wouldn't you say that smoothie is very similar to an orange juluis? Maybe?

    1. Donna, an Orange Julius is a little more frothy and vanilla-y, while this smoothie is thicker. To make it MORE Orange Julius-like, I'd use a non-Greek vanilla yogurt, and a bit more orange juice to make it runnier!
