How Banana Helps You Lose Weight | Health Benefits Of Banana:

According to Dietician and Nutritionist, Dr. Sunali Sharma, banana contains just 105 calories so it helps in both gaining and losing weight what matters is the quantity you consume.

"Eating only one medium-sized or 5-inch banana a day helps lose weight. Also, it should be ideally eaten as a pre or post-workout meal, as it will build up stamina and will help the body recover after a rigorous physical activity," she explained and added that if you want to lose weight, instead of giving it up completely, have in limited portion.

So, we bring you some delicious banana-based drink recipes that will help you lose weight in the healthiest possible way. Let's check out!

The Ingredients

  • Bananas: I used 4 medium-sized frozen bananas. Please make sure to use super ripe bananas for the best results!
  • Milk: Use any dairy-free milk of your choice for this vegan milkshake – oat milk, almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, soy milk, etc. I used unsweetened soy milk.
  • Peanut Butter: Just a single tablespoon of nut butter helps to make this banana shake super creamy. Add more if you want more of a peanut butter milkshake. You could also substitute this with any nut butter of your choice (cashew butter or almond butter work very well). For a nut-free version, use sunflower seed butter.
  • Vanilla Extract: This will help to make this healthy milkshake taste even more like a decadent dessert.
  • To drizzle (optional): I used a combination of melted peanut butter and dairy-free chocolate to drizzle in the glasses.

For the full ingredients list, measurements, complete recipe method, and nutritional information, read the recipe card below.

Optional Add-Ins

There are several simple ways to adapt this banana shake. Here are just a few of my top options:

  • Spices: Experiment with adding a dash or two of your favorite spices. Cinnamon, in particular, works very well with bananas, as do Chai spices and ginger.
  • Chocolate: You can easily adapt this banana milkshake with a chocolatey twist of unsweetened cacao powder or, for a sweeter treat, a spoonful or two of this Vegan Chocolate Spread (a healthier all-natural ‘Nutella’).
  • Strawberries: I love strawberry and banana smoothies, and the same goes for milkshakes. Add fresh or frozen strawberries to this healthy milkshake for even more fruity nutrients and flavor.
  • Sweetener: If you have a sweet tooth and don’t find the natural sweetness of the banana shake enough, then feel free to add a tiny amount of your favorite sweetener (maple, agave, or a sugar-free alternative). You could also use dates to naturally sweeten this banana milk.
  • Chia/Flax: For extra protein, you could add a tablespoon or two of chia/flaxseeds to the banana drink or vegan protein powder.

Banana & Chocolate PB Shake

The answer is no. Enter this Banana & Chocolate PB Shake.

Seriously, how could this not be good though? It has three of the best flavors, banana, peanut butter, and chocolate all together in one decadent treat that hits your sweet tooth and goals just right. You could even have this for breakfast!

How it all comes together

This recipe brings the sweetness from the ripeness of the bananas so be sure to use some that are well ripened. If you still would like it a little bit sweeter you could add in a little honey.

This is one cool and creamy, protein-rich shake you are going to love!

18 Protein Shake Recipes That Taste Like Dessert

1. Blueberry Pie Protein Shake

Ready to whip up a quick and easy blueberry pie? Vanilla protein powder, a dash of cinnamon and frozen blueberries create berry-licious base. Top with strips of a quick and nutty “crust” — made from raw cashew butter, agave and almond meal — to make it even more pie-like. Photo and Recipe: Sarah / A Whisk and Two Wands

2. Black Forest Protein Shake

This chocolate-cherry shake couldn’t be simpler. And, it tastes exactly like a thick slice of rich and indulgent black forest cake — just without all the sugar, butter and heavy cream.

Blend it up until smooth and top with a dollop of coconut cream and a cherry for the ultimate guilt-free snack. Photo and Recipe: Perry Santanachote / Life by Daily Burn

3. Snickers Protein Smoothie

The secret to this Snickers-flavored shake is PB2 (or powdered, de-fatted peanut butter). But the protein comes from cottage cheese and chocolate, vanilla or caramel protein powder. The recipe also calls for sugar-free chocolate and caramel syrups, but if you’d prefer to skip the artificial stuff, all-natural caramel or butterscotch extract would work well, too. Top the final product with chocolate chips and chopped peanuts for an even more candy bar-like treat. Photo and Recipe: Veggies by Candlelight

4. Frozen S’more Shake

This one is sure to bring back memories of toasting marshmallows over an open fire. While the end result isn’t as high in protein as most others on this list (the ingredients include just cocoa mix, milk, cinnamon, ice and a frozen banana), it’s still a healthier way to satisfy that sweet tooth. Pour the finished product into a frosty mug and finish it off with crushed graham crackers and marshmallow. Photo and Recipe: Kathy Patalsky / Healthy. Happy. Life

Serve as-is, or top with chopped pistachios or walnuts for a bit of crunch. Photo and Recipe: Emma / Better with Cake

17. Protein Frosty Shake

The next time you get the urge to swing by Wendy’s for a good old Frosty, re-route back home and whip this up instead. While a 16-ounce cup of the classic treat contains 460 calories and 64 grams of sugar, our healthier version has just 261 calories and 11 grams of sugar, plus 24 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber. The secret ingredient? Xanthan gum, which gives this Protein Frosty its thick, creamy texture. Photo and Recipe: Perry Santanachote / Life by Daily Burn

Healthy Vegan Shamrock Shake

Back in the day, I used to love the seasonal Shamrock Shake from a certain fast food restaurant. I hadn’t had or thought of one of those shakes in years until Matt and I drove by an advertisement for them the other day. Oh my gosh – Shamrock Shakes! I’d forgotten all about those! I decided I had a new mission: create a healthy but still delicious version at home.

I set to work on the project with Matt’s assistance.

Mint Avocado Smoothie Ingredients

The secret ingredient to this healthy shamrock shake? Avocado! Its flavor and texture goes so well with the other ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this mint avocado banana smoothie:

  • vanilla almond milk (sweetened)
  • banana (the riper, the better! It adds some sweetness)
  • vanilla extract
  • fresh mint leaves
  • avocado (should be ripe enough so it’s creamy when blended)

Super Cacao & Banana Shake + Cacao Health Benefits

A chocolate shake that’s good for you? Yes, please! This cacao banana shake is packed full of antioxidants and is so quick and easy to make. Simply place all the ingredients into a blender, blend on high, and voila! A delicious healthy chocolatey treat. I even enjoy it for breakfast some days. Oh yes, chocolate for breakfast!

Did you know antioxidant levels in bananas increase the riper and browner they become? I personally cannot stand the taste of even slightly overripe bananas, so this shake is a great way to use them up, while also ensuring I am getting the most nutrients and antioxidants from them. The overripe flavour of the banana becomes less potent when combined with the other ingredients and gives the shake a sweeter taste. Win-win!

I like to use frozen bananas in this recipe, as I find they produce a thicker consistency. If you haven't got any pre-frozen bananas on hand then fresh bananas are of course fine. The consistency may be a little runnier, however still very delicious.

Now, lets talk cacao! Cacao vs. cocoa, is there a difference? Yes, there most certainly is! Raw cacao is made by cold pressing unroasted cacao beans. This process keeps the living enzymes (the goodies) in the cacao while separating the powder from the cacao butter. Cacao is considered to be a rich source of antioxidants such as procyanidins and flavonoids, which may impart anti aging properties (hello!). Cocoa powder on the other hand, is raw cacao that has been roasted at very high temperatures. These high temperatures change the molecular structure of the cacao bean, lowering its overall nutritional value (not good). I also like to use almond milk in my cacao shake as research shows that dairy can inhibit the absorption of the antioxidants from raw cacao.

So in terms of health benefits, cacao… good. Cocoa… not so good.

Do you use cacao? What’s your favorite cacao recipe?

QUICK TIP: I like to chop up any overripe bananas I have lying around in the fruit bowl, place them into a container and then pop them in the freezer so I always have some readily frozen. It also saves those rapidly deteriorating bananas if you haven't had time to eat them.
