My Spring Forward Shake will spring you into a state of frosty, dreamy, sunny day bliss. Bright perky peaches, sweet red strawberries, silky soy and a secret ingredient that gives this shake it’s own ultra-creamy, luscious, healthy glow…
Spring is coming. I promise it is. Tomorrow March 13th is Spring Forward Day! ..Then St.Patty’s Day. Then March madness basketball. Then voila! .. spring. I can’t wait to sprawl on my back on a soft field of grass and stare up at a blue canvas sky speckled with white puffy clouds. Sweet song birds tweeting from the nearby trees. Sunglasses on. Shoes off. And at my fingertips, this pink frosty sip..
Secret Shake Ingredient: Frozen Bananas. I don’t really know why stores don’t sell frozen bananas. I spot them once in a while, but very rarely and they are usually in a berry/banana mix. I mean really, frozen bananas are such a genius ingredient to add to smoothies. They are like natures dairy-free ice cream. When blended they add body, texture and supreme sweet-creaminess to a smoothie or shake recipe.
..so I always freeze my own bananas. Really ripe. I slice them thin and toss them in freezer bags to grab whenever I please.
