There's just something about a cute paper straw - add a striped straw and whatever you're drinking becomes exponentially tastier. Really!
We keep our freezer stocked with frozen bananas just so we can indulge in creamy smoothies whenever the urge hits. A frozen banana is pretty magical - it turns your everyday smoothie combo into something more like a milkshake. No need for ice cream!
Just make sure you peel & cut up bananas before freezing though. Peeling frozen bananas is no fun.
This is a recent favourite of ours - tastes rather like a chocolate milkshake and makes for a satisfying dessert!
