Notes

Note 1: Bananas: Peel and slice the banana into coins, place in freezer safe containers or bags, and freeze overnight. Honestly, having a completely frozen banana (as opposed to an unfrozen one) is what makes this smoothie. (I like to prep the bananas right after my grocery store run so I don’t forget!)
