I am making big claims here today. But I swear by this one key ingredient for transforming all of my smoothies into something totally magical!
You can freeze bananas by choosing ripe ones, peeling them, and storing them in tightly sealed freezer bags. Stick in your freezer and use them as desired! I usually eat mine within the week.
Bonus: Another mouth watering way to upgrade your smoothie game is to replace water with coconut water. If you are already on the frozen banana train, try this for a change!
Extra bonus: Drizzle maple syrup on top and drink it with a straw!
The straw makes all the difference, guys. Here is a recipe for one of my very favorite smoothies combinations:
1. Blend 1/2 cup raspberries, 1/2 cup wild blueberries, and 1 cup coconut water together in a high speed blender.
2. Add 2 ripened bananas (brown spots are best!) and 1-1/2 frozen bananas. Blend together on high until smooth.
3. Pour into a glass. Drizzle 1-2 tsp of maple syrup on the top. Insert your favorite straw and enjoy!
