I’ve got another idea for your over-ripe bananas today. Smoothies. I love the flavor of those very ripe brown speckled bananas. But the texture? They’re a little too soft and mushy for me. I just can’t get past the over soft, almost slimy texture; but I can’t waste them. Bananas are at their sweetest when they are the ugliest. I do love putting them in banana bread and banana pudding, but sometimes you just don’t want all those sweet goodies around the house. So yesterday I picked up alot of on on sale per-packaged cut fruit with the intentions of making smoothies for breakfast. This morning I pulled out some frozen mangoes and then paired them with a banana and some coconut milk for a delicious smoothie. They also have light coconut milk if you want to save on calories. Alternatively, you could just use any other type of milk you have on hand.
Mango Banana Smoothie
1 over ripe banana
1 cup mango chunks (I used frozen, pre-packaged)
1 cup coconut milk, light or regular
a few ice cubes
1. Add all ingredients to the blender and mix on high until smooth.
