The banana bread smoothie recipe is nutritious and great for boosting energy! It is packed with plant-based protein, yet there is no protein powder in sight. Plus, it contains 2 servings of vegetables per serving.

It boasts 12g of protein, plus more if you use plant-based milk that contains additional protein! We like to add oat milk to our smoothies, with the brand we use boasting 4g per one cup serving.

Optionally, you can add 1 tablespoon of cacao powder to this smoothie before blending. Doing so will add a chocolaty flavor, and an extra 1g of protein.

If you don't have any frozen cauliflower, add in an extra 1/2 cup of zucchini to replace it.

If you want to make this into a smoothie bowl, use a frozen banana and reduce the amount of milk to make a thicker smoothie. Pour into a bowl, and add the toppings of your choice such as granola, fresh berries, nuts, seeds, etc.
