typically the smoothie’s available in cafe or any popular chains, contains high sugar quantity which makes it unhealthy cold beverage. however in this recipe i have used honey as a sweetening agent which not only helps to improve the taste, but also adds the additional health benefits from it. moreover, it makes an ideal breakfast recipe because banana’s are rich in carbs and potasium. where as milk is full of carbs with proteins and fats. hence banana smoothie recipe makes a complete and nutritious food which not only provides the necessary energy for the body, but also helps to reduce the weight.
