Banana Tahini Smoothie

Bananas and tahini in smoothie? Who would have thought?
Warmer days call for sweet yummy beverages in tow with generous helpings of water replenishment. In the summer months, I always make sure to have plenty of bananas on hand. They are great for thickening smoothies and milkshakes. Plus the more brown spots they have, the more natural sugars will be available. I wouldn't have to add cane sugar, maple, or date syrup to these drinks thanks to bananas.
With this smoothie, a few spices and nutty flavored tahini bring together a quick, tasty refresher. The sesame seed sprinkle gives a little crunchy texture to ease out the overall creamy smoothness. 

Banana Tahini Smoothie Ingredients and Preparation

2 bananas, ripened
2 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
pinch of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds

Blend all ingredients (save for the optional sesame seeds) together.
Pour into desired glass and sprinkle with sesame seeds and extra cinnamon and cocoa powder.
Drink up!


  1. This sounds delicious and right up my alley. I'm always looking for new ways to use tahini!!

    1. Thanks! I love tahini too and will be exploring more of its possibilities over the summer.
