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!

  2. Sounds yummy!

  3. This is a great way of using up overripe bananas! Especially in the summertime. I always freeze our bananas that are getting overripe, but I usually use them in banana bread (which I don’t make in the summer very often).
