Tips & Suggestions

1 Freeze bananas ahead of time. Choose fresh bananas that are partially green or just turned yellow with no brown spots. The more they ripen the sweeter they become & have a higher calorie count.

2 Slice bananas about 1/2" thick & place, in a single layer, in a quart sized freezer bag. Freeze & use them within 2 weeks or so.

3 The reason for the extra step of stirring is because the honey tends to clump & stick to the Bullet cup, never getting fully integrated into the smoothie.

4 If you don't have a Bullet type blender, you can use a regular full-sized blender. Eliminate the stirring in step# 1, just add all the ingredients in the OPPOSITE order listed & blend until smooth.
