Banana and Caramel Smoothie
4 Way Smoothie
I couldn’t publish a recipe for caramel without a caramel smoothie to go with it. The caramel in this banana and caramel smoothie makes it so sweet and creamy. This smoothie feels like a really indulgent treat. I’ve recently been away for a while staying with family so I’ve not been creating as many smoothies as I normally do, but I did make this one before I went and couldn’t wait to share it with you. It was lovely to relax and do some reading while I was away as I hardly used my laptop at all. I read some great health books including The Coconut Oil Miracle and it was extremely convincing. I had actually read a similar book on my quest to overcome chronic fatigue syndrome and I did start to include coconut oil in my diet and did feel a lot better. However I soon forgot about the benefits of coconut when I started the 80/10/10 Diet. I have always been a big believer of the health benefits of unprocessed foods and all fruits and vegetables but I was still undecided about the fat content in coconut. However once you read this book I’m sure you’ll be just as convinced as I am that coconut is extremely good for you, and pretty much the more the better. So I’ve started including much more coconut in my diet which involves putting more coconut in my smoothies and using coconut oil for all my cooking. But don’t worry I’ll still give you a balance of smoothies that don’t all contain coconut. I’m going to be posting much more on the benefits of coconut in the future.
Banana and Caramel Smoothie
I originally created this smoothie without coconut milk but I think it tastes so much creamier and richer with it. I’m not usually a fan of walnuts in smoothies but I think it goes so well in this smoothie. The caramel makes the smoothie so sweet, the nuttiness of the walnuts really balance out the sweetness. This recipe includes a one ingredient vegan caramel. To learn how to make caramel, you can have a look at my previous recipe which was a big hit! Remember to allow your caramel to soften before you add it to your blender otherwise it will be like a a big brick flying around in there.

TO MAKE INTO A GREEN THICKIE Add:
- If your caramel is too hard, make sure you soften it first by placing the bowl/jar in another bowl of boiling water.
- Blend the ingredients in the order listed.
- If you are making a green smoothie blend the greens and liquid first and then blend the rest of the ingredients. This creates more space in your blender.
- Add more water if required to thin it out. Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have.
- If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge or freeze some of your ingredients before blending.
- It is better to add frozen ingredients at the end to cool the smoothie down.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
