Let's Talk Ingredients
Bananas - I have used 1 whole Banana into making this 1 glass of Smoothie. However, the numbers are totally up to you. If you like a sweet smoothie you should add at least 2 bananas into your blender.
Oranges - I have used resh Clementine Oranges for this Smoothie. It's so healthy and brings in a wonderful refreshing flavor to the smoothie. If you want your smoothie to be a little sour, then you can add 2 whole Clementine Oranges.
Yogurt - Yogurt is added to add thickness to this smoothie. I think the creaminess in this smoothie is due to the Yogurt. If you are on a dairy-free diet then you can use almond milk or Soy Milk in place of Yogurt.
Vanilla - I have used pure Vanilla Essence in making this smoothie. It gives this smoothie a nice edge and gives it that comforting and festive flavor.
