Note: This is a great basic shake recipe, so feel free to add any extras you want like matcha powder, frozen berries, flax seeds, fruit juice, or yogurt. When you have over ripe bananas, peel and cut into thick slice and store them in your freezer for a quick and easy addition to any smoothie .
Yield: 1 large or two small smoothies
