I just got back from vacation in California where the weather was mild and the air was dry. Already one day in NYC and I wish I was back in sunny CA. In New York it's hot and humid...and the jet lag sure isn't helping. Walking home from work I developed a craving and there was no way I was going to ignore it. My body was clearly telling me that I needed something...something that could only be found in a COLD banana smoothie.
So I made one...and unfortunately fell a little short of the ingredients I planned to use, but I sufficed with what I had and it was delicious and sooo chillingly refreshing.
One banana (chopped in chunks)
About 1/4 to 1/2 C of OJ
Squirt of agave nectar
About a TBSP of chia seeds
In my mind I had envisioned possibly using Greek yogurt and some vanilla along with my bananas...or maybe a wad of peanut butter...OR freshly chopped peanuts. Then I got to thinking...a dash of coconut oil... I was just dreaming up the possibilities. Unfortunately, I was missing most of those ingredients. I made due, and couldn't have been more satisfied. I just needed a little umbrella to bring me back to the "vacation mind-set."
What do you like with your bananas in a smoothie??
