I mixed up this recipe for Salted Caramelized Banana Smoothies because I really wanted to use my new Maca Powder but I couldn’t find a recipe without coconut milk or shredded coconut (both of which I do not like) so I found a couple recipes to combine. And it came out divine!
Normally, on smoothie mornings I will make up smoothies for everyone, but since I am trying to get pictures for each recipe in the Smoothie Challenge, I’m making them randomly at all hours of the day so not everyone is hungry. Since this makes two servings, I shared with my thirteen-year-old and she emptied her cup in about three minutes flat.
This recipe will make two powerhouse servings. To make it colder, and make it go further, you could add one cup of ice to the blender first.

Salted Caramelized Banana Smoothies with Maca Powder
- Prep Time: 10 Minutes
- Cook Time: 5 Minutes
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: 2 1/2 Cups
- 2 Bananas (Sliced)
- 1 Teaspoon Butter,
- 2 Cup Rolled or Steel Cut Oats
- 1 Tablespoon Maca Powder
- 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
- 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinammon
- 1 Sprinkle Coarse Kosher Salt
- 2 Cups Almond Milk
- To make this delicious smoothie, you will first need to slice and caramelize two bananas in the butter. I did this by getting the butter melted on medium to low heat, and then laying the banana slices into the hot skillet. Flipping the bananas once after a couple minutes and cooking time to total 4-5 minutes will make them perfect.
- Pop those bananas into the freezer to chill for thirty minutes or even longer. You could make up several servings of these and freeze them for future use.
- Once the bananas are chilled, dump them in your blender, followed by the oats, maca powder, chia seeds, ground cinnamon, and the almond milk last.
- Blend on high until smooth.
- Pour into glasses and add a tiny sprinkle of salt to the top. I got a little fancy, and saved out one banana slice for the top of each smoothie, then topped that with salt. But fancy is not necessary! The tiny bit of salt really made the smoothies over the top!
