I've been playing around with smoothies lately. They seem like they should be so easy to make, but I am super picky about how they turn out. I'm learning the ins and outs of getting the perfect texture and taste. In the summer I have a lot of over ripe bananas because they turn so quickly in the warm weather. I peel them first and then freeze them and use as needed for smoothies.
This one is a favorite of the kids. They think they're chocolate shakes. Freeze any leftovers in a Popsicle tray and have homemade healthy frozen treats!
