[Fill in the Blank] Banana Smoothie
One of my father’s favorite anytime indulgences is making a banana smoothie: one ripe banana, some of our homemade plum jam, plain yogurt, and honey. In the late fall, he’ll swap out the jam for ripe kiwi-fruit.
You can add any kind of berry you would like to this Banana smoothie.
A ripe banana adds most of the naturally occurring sugars you need, and it always seems you have a lonely remaining banana, making it a great candidate for a banana smoothie.
Personally, I’m a blueberry banana smoothie or strawberry smoothie fan. Actually, I can’t remember ever meeting a smoothie I didn’t like (have great plans for the papaya ripening on the counter).
