Food: Malted Banana Smoothie





One of the things I love best about hot summer days is relaxing with cold, delicious beverages. One of my favorite summer ( or any season) treats are yogurt smoothies. I have several recipes that I really like including a Malted Banana Smoothie. I tend to eat lighter in the summer and smoothies are a healthy and filling meal replacement if I need something quick. I will often have a smoothie for breakfast instead of my usual cereal or oatmeal.


This banana smoothie does not have yogurt in it, but ,surprisingly, the recipe said it only has about 320 calories.


I have a hard time getting my darling hubby to eat fruits and vegetables( yeah,he's not a veggie and fruit lover like me!), so a smoothie is a good way to sneak some fruits into his diet.

Malted Banana Smoothie:
 1 cup low fat milk (or vanilla soy milk can be used)
1 medium banana, peeled and sliced
1/4 c. malted-milk powder
1 tbl. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients together until smooth and frothy.


I'll be linking this with The Tablescaper for Summer Sunday


Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks so much for coming and joining "Summer Sundays".

Your banana smoothie sounds great and I like the idea of using it as a breakfast alternative.

Hope you have you with us at Sundays in the future.

Hi Katie,
Mmmm your smoothies sound perfect!! I love smoothies:-)
I know I am always saying I have that (I think we live parellel lives sometimes:-) I have your same blender, it was Mikes Grandmothers and he loves it (he is Deco at heart).
I am in love with your roses wallpaper too! It is the prettiest I have seen!
Hope you are having a great weekend!

Yum, looks and sounds great. I have the same problem here (and with myself). I'm a meat and potatoes and chocolate girl so this sounds like a great way to get some fruits! My kids love fruit smoothies to!

I love your blog template to!
