SERVE WITH
VARIATIONS
  • You can add in a handful of spinach for a nutritional boost.
  • Any nut butter works well.
  • If you like things a little sweeter we recommend adding in the dried date.
TIPS
  • Using frozen bananans and berries is what makes this smoothie super thick and creamy. If you're using an un-frozen banana you can add 1/2 a cup of ice to get it to a similar consistency.
  • If your blender isn't super powerful you might need to add a little more liquid, this will make it more of a traditional smoothie consistency but still delicious.
