I whipped up this refreshing shake when I was pretty hungry. I had an intense workout, came home to rinse off, got the kids ready, and packed the pool bag to meet some friends for lunch and swimming. I needed to refuel and hydrate quickly. This did the trick!

Freezing Extra Bananas & Banana Berry Base Smoothie

Freezing Extra Bananas & Banana Berry Base Smoothie

There was a time when extra overripe bananas meant the pleasure or pressure to bake. Once I made the banana ice scream recipe from the Vitamix cookbook, I realized that bananas were just as useful frozen as any other frozen fruit.
