Banana Cream Pie Smoothie

Cinnamon and vanilla make this wholesome shake taste like dessert – but then it's loaded with energy-boosting nutrients from the bananas, almonds and yogurt. Pie in a glass. Yes, please!

Kitchen Gear

Measuring cup
Measuring spoons
Dinner knife
Cutting board
Blender (adult needed)


1 very ripe banana, peeled and sliced
1⁄2 cup low-fat milk
1⁄2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 tablespoons unsalted almonds
1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ice cubes


Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your kitchen gear and ingredients and put them on a clean counter.

  1. Put all the ingredients in the blender.
  2. Put the top on tightly. Turn on the blender to medium speed and blend until the ice is chopped and the mixture is smooth, 30-60 seconds.
  3. Divide the smoothie equally between 2 glasses and serve right away or store in a thermos or covered in the refrigerator, up to 4 hours.

Think Ahead: Freeze the banana ahead of time for a thicker, slushier smoothie!
