Recipe: Banana and Lemongrass Smoothie

Lemongrass is a fragrant herb that adds a refreshing, invigorating and aromatic flavour to food, especially Thai and Malaysian cuisine. It also works wonders in a smoothie.

This banana and lemongrass smoothie adds a zing to the naturally sweet taste of banana. It uses fresh coconut milk, but you can also use whole milk, almond milk and if you desire a creamy textured smoothie, tinned coconut milk will also work.


2 cups of fresh coconut milk

1/2 stalk of fresh lemongrass

1 ripe banana


  1. Chop the lemongrass stalk as finely as you can
  2. Mash the banana
  3. Add the banana, coconut milk and chopped lemongrass in a blender
  4. Serve chilled. Serves two.
