Simple Banana Smoothie With Ginger

Simple Banana Smoothie With Ginger. Start the day with this quick and simple smoothie.

Simple Banana Smoothie With Ginger

Last Monday I went to a baking class on mastering macaroons and it was the best fun I’ve had in ages! I met some lovely people, including a lady called Patricia. Patricia and I were the two early birds for the class, so we had time to chat a bit whilst prepping our ingredients for the class. Patricia talked about the gingerbread men she had made recently and I talked about my favourite smoothie of the moment, as it happens to have ginger in it. Before we knew it we were laughing at the mishaps we were having with the macaroons; Patricia was having trouble with the food colouring (grey instead of red), whilst mine were gorgeous in colour but rather on the thick side. They piped out looking like uumm…pink poo!  Macaroons are hard to get right but luckily smoothies are so simple to make, especially if you’ve invested in a good quality blender. 

Do you ever go through phases of using ingredients for weeks on end? For me, my ingredients of the moment are ginger and coconut. This smoothie was the first one I tested out using the Froothie Optimum G2.1 and the flavours remind me of sitting on a beach soaking up the rays of the sun! Ah, sunshine! It’s made a guest appearance here for the past week and I’m thinking it’s not going to stay for much longer. It really does lift your spirits though and so does this smoothie, with its yellow colour and tropical flavours.

I am a Froothie Ambassador. This means that From Plate to Pen will have plenty of posts showing some of the things I make in the silver machine. It also means that if you buy an Optimum G2.1 using this link, it won’t cost you any more, but I will get a small commission. All opinions are my own.

    We don’t have a blender, but this has made me think about putting one on the wishlist as I suspect my toddler would really enjoy something like this. What a pretty smoothie it is too!

    Love the sound of this one and the colour. I’m so used to seeing green, purple and pink smoothies, it’s really refreshing to see this one.

    This sounds gorgeous – aside from the sunshine factor I think it would be a great pick me up too!

    This looks like a really lush smoothie Sarah, I’m not keen on coconut water on its own but do love it in smoothies:-)

    I am not a banana person at all. I would try this recipe because I feel ginger will change the flavor a bit!
