Low-Calorie Banana & Vanilla Smoothie Recipe

homemade low-calorie vanilla and banana smoothie

Low-calorie smoothies are a delicious option as a nutritious breakfast or even a light lunch when you’re following an OPTIFAST diet plan.

Our OPTIFAST Shakes can be blended with ice and water to make a delicious smoothie.

When following a weight loss plan, you can still enjoy a nutritious smoothie with the option of adding in more fresh fruit along with skimmed milk or fat-free yoghurt to make a more substantial drink.

For those on a vegan diet, you can easily adapt the recipe by using plant-based milk and leaving out the honey, using another type of sweetener instead – when you’re tracking your daily calorie intake, just remember to adjust the calorie count for any changes you make.

Low-Calorie Banana & Vanilla Smoothie Recipe



  • 250 ml skimmed milk
  • 1 small banana, peeled and sliced into chunks
  • 2 tbsp fat-free natural yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp honey


  1. Peel and slice the banana into small ½ inch rounds.

  2. Add the sliced banana along with the milk, yoghurt and honey into a food processor.

  3. Blend the ingredients on high until you have a smooth consistency.

  4. If the smoothie is too thick to drink, add a small amount of cold water to loosen the mixture and blend again.

  5. Pour the smoothie mixture into two glasses and serve immediately.
