Normally I’m not a fan of bananas (I am a bit Goldilocks about them, no brown bits but they must be just ripe enough to eat) but I am a BIG fan of Banana, Peanut Butter and Almond Smoothie. What a combination, what a taste. It works. It’s quick. It’s easy. And it’s delicious. This gluten-free, vegan smoothie is fabulous after a run. Protein and potassium and other stuff.
Using bananas in a smoothie also avoids any potential Goldilocks banana situation. However ripe, or unripe, they are it just doesn’t matter. All bananas work in this recipe.
