Banana Smoothie Recipe:
This banana smoothie recipe is tasty and highly nutritious. The ingredients are simple, but varying a few things can completely change the recipe. The bananas, water, and ice cubes can actually stand on their own as a delicious treat, but add something off the list of other fruit to jazz it up. The other great thing about the recipe is that it doesn't use any artificial sweeteners or fat, so it's all good.
Two Ice Cubes
Pick one of the following:
Dates, soaked raisins, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, papaya, apple, mango.
Throw the bananas into your blender. Depending on how much water you add to this, the consistency of the shake can vary considerably. If you like cold, throw in two ice cubes. I particularly like adding blueberries or blackberries, but all the other fruit adds an interesting element as well. Obviously, the stronger you want the taste of the secondary fruit to be, the more you should add.
Enjoy your smoothie. It makes a fantastic daily treat.
