I could not resist this !!! What is better than a quick throw together morning smoothie. I feel like I have just discovered my blender again, and can’t resist playing with it !!! I literally have been making smoothies and juices all week….I know….quite sad hey, but I like playing in my kitchen, and I like just sprucing the breakfast ideas up, otherwise it gets a tad boring. Not only that, I scrapped together the last of the strawberries here, so I had to take full advantage.
I was really on the fence about the banana thing…I am weird, I have this thing about bananas. I like them, and then sometimes I don’t. I love them in a fruit salad, banana bread and even in muffins, but then sometimes the thought of putting a banana into say a smoothie…….it doesn’t gross me out, it is just like…do I have to? should I? Then, I do, and I love the smoothie…. Yes, just bare with me, I have my moments.
