We don't eat banana's fast enough. So they get spotted and brown. But they are still fine inside the skin, but a little soft. This is when I peel them and put them in a freezer bag in the freezer. I cut them in half. When I get ready for my morning smoothie I take out one half of a banana (frozen), run some warm water on it, cut it into thirds and toss it in my blender ...
... along with a handful of almonds, some sunflower seeds, chai seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds,
two hands full of blue berries, (now choose: some raspberries, strawberries, figs, a peach, or other fruit of your choice)
at the end I add a handful (one cup) of fresh organic kale, or some edamame (soy beans) from the freezer. That's the green component...you can use spinach or zucchini too.
Then I add half a cup of unsweetened non-dairy, organic, coconut milk.
If you drink dairy you can use milk instead, or juice.
But the non-dairy fits my vegan style of eating.
Blend it all together (chop the nuts/seeds/banana) then liquefy)
Pour it into a tall cup...mine is 16 oz and I fill it to the top
and drink it for breakfast! I have fruit and veggies, nuts, seeds, protein, calcium, vitamins!
It keeps me feeling full until way past normal lunch time. So I eat half as much as I'd normally eat for lunch and take the rest home for dinner. No wonder I am losing weight!
