Going Bananas!


Are your kids craving something sweet to eat when they get home from school?

Let them go bananas with this easy to make, healthy banana smoothie.


  • 1   whole banana (ripe or frozen)
  • 1   cup Milk
  • 3   whole Ice Cubes


Peel the banana and put the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth and creamy.

Change up the recipe by adding  fresh or frozen strawberries, fresh or frozen blueberries, or even some mango.  Try it with some unsweetened cocoa powder, peanut butter or add some protein powder.   Use yogurt instead of milk for some extra tang. 

This also makes an easy breakfast drink  so use your imagination and Go Bananas!!
