This recipe does take a little prep work, but once you get in the habit of making these simple smoothie preparations you will be enjoying these delicious breakfast treats daily! Do you already make a pot of coffee each day? Most of us do, and what do we do with the un-drunken coffee left in the pot at the end of the day? Well, you might say…I dump it down the drain. Stop that habit now! Instead, grab a ice cube tray and fill it up with that coffee. Stick it in the freezer and step one is done! Next, it’s bananas!
Same goes for those Banana’s. Just a bit more prep work. Do you have black and bruised bananas sitting on your counter? Before throwing them in the trash (as long as they are not gross and mushy black) chop them up into 1/2 inch bits and put them in a freezer baggy, and you guessed it, pop it in the freezer as well. )One banana per bag. Or if you are a little lazy you can just throw the whole banana in the freezer as is.OK so now your prep work is done! That wasn’t so bad was it? And you probably feel a little better about yourself because you have not wasted any bananas or coffee:)
Here is what you will need to complete this yummy treat! I call this sweet deliciousness a Chunky Monkey!
