Ingredient Spotlight-Nutella-Banana Smoothie

IMG_1180-1


If you have been reading this blog, you know that my new go-to breakfast drink is a Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie from This Chick Cooks.

The other day I decided to change it up and use Nutella instead of peanut butter.  So this is my adaptation of Katie’s recipe.  The Nutella will not completely dissolve, so there will be little flecks of chocolate in the smoothie.

With the other ingredients in it, my mini food processor doesn’t do well with a whole cup of milk so I process this in two steps.  In the first step, I combine the banana, Nutella and about 3/4 cup milk.  I pour that into my glass, add about 1/2 cup more milk to the food processor and process that.  I pour that into the first mixture.  Doing two steps also helps to get every little bit of goodness out of the food processor and into my glass.

1 frozen banana, sliced
2-3 T. Nutella, as desired
1 1/4 c. milk, divided

Place the banana, Nutella, and 3/4 c. milk in a mini food processor.  Blend until smooth.  Pour into a glass.  Add 1/2 c. milk to the food processor and process briefly.  Add to smoothie mixture in glass and mix well with a spoon.  Drink and enjoy.  Serves 1.
