Banana Smoothies

Bananas are often an ingredient in smoothie recipes because they add a thick, creamy base that's also healthy. They pair well with lots of other flavors, too, which makes them perfect in smoothie combinations. If you want to go tropical, try this recipe that mixes together bananas, mango, pineapple, coconut milk and coconut flour. Or, if you need a boost in the morning, make this beet-cacao smoothie with beets, banana and cacao powder. Food & Wine's guide will give you tons of delicious ways to blend up your bananas.
