Banana Smoothie

Banana Smoothie

A Banana Smoothie instantly makes you feel like you are on vacation.

Do you have bananas past their prime? Don’t throw them out! Their sweetness and soft texture make them perfect for smoothies. Just remove the darkened skins, and then freeze the flesh in tightly sealed bags until you are ready to transform them into a quick breakfast or afternoon snack.

If you have nutmeg, be sure to use it. It takes this smoothie to another dimension. And for an extra-special treat, add a couple of tablespoons of rum, and imagine yourself on a beach somewhere.
