Chad starts most of his mornings with a smoothie. His go-to flavor is banana and peanut butter with protein powder. Every once and a while, I try to vary his smoothies a bit. He really enjoyed this one. As with many smoothie recipes, the amount of the ingredients listed are mostly estimates. They can easily be changed/omitted/added to based on personal taste.
- Always add ice last.It prevents the ice from becoming over-blended and watery. It also pushes down the rest of the ingredients to help with blending.
- Put in the liquid first.The blender will work more efficiently and keep the ingredients moving.
- When you cut up your fruit, stick it in the freezer. Frozen fruit helps make the smoothies cold. Chop the fruit first, then flash freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet before putting in a freezer bag. This keeps the fruit from sticking together.
- If the smoothie is too thin, add some more ice.
