Tips:

** You can decide to completely avoid using any added sweeteners. Remember, the riper the banana the sweeter it is and the better it blends. So the next time you find your bananas developing the brown spots, don’t be disheartened, just make a smoothie!

** You can also add your favorite protein powder to these smoothies.

**These can be made a night before and therefore make for a great grab and go breakfast!

**You can also add 1 tbsp of chia seeds or flax seeds to the smoothie in order to add an extra protein punch. I use chickpea milk which comes with added flaxseeds and therefore I leave out the chia or flax seeds.
