This smoothie is so easy to make and has protein and fiber and is good for you
I know what you're thinking! Yuck. Right? Before you judge though hear me out.
These bananas are frozen. This idea came from my friend Kim, who is full of good ideas and has the sweetest southern drawl you've ever heard.
Every idea Kim has given me so far has turned out to be great.
We go through a lot of bananas and up until recently I'd been throwing out bananas that turned brown and spotty too fast. It's one of the things that bugs me. I buy green bananas and within a couple of days they're bad.
Kim asked me if I was freezing them and I said no. She told me that I am completely missing out! She said to freeze them then when you make a smoothie you've got a nice flavorful frozen banana.
Peeling is easy, she says, if you just run it under warm tap water for a second.
My daughter and I made smoothies yesterday with our frozen bananas. I'm not going to give specific measurements because it really doesn't matter- you can't go wrong. We added skim milk, 2 frozen bananas, a spoon full of peanut butter, a little bit of ice, and blend!
We also added one scoop of vanilla flavored Muscle Milk powder and it was yummy, but if you don't have any protein powder it's not that big of a deal. It will still be great.
So start freezing those nanners instead of throwing them out. And stop feeling guilty for not making banana bread with them.
This is definitely laid back and refreshing! (And good for you!)
Life on the lake is laid back. When we cook it's far from being fancy affair. It's all about relaxing with friends and family and enjoying comfort food. More often than not it's not all that healthy but boy it sure is good!!!
