I secretly love when my bananas start to go bad. I take that as a sign that it’s time to freeze those babies. Sometimes I bake with frozen bananas but I really like to use them in smoothies.
I actually picked up a really strange bunch of bananas the other day. They were green at first, but then stayed green and started to brown. They kinda just weirded me out so I decided to freeze them. When in doubt? Freeze ’em!
One of my favorite protein shakes includes a necessary ingredient in the morning: coffee! I love coffee because..well, it’s coffee. But I really like the flavor and smell of coffee too so including it in anything whether that’s a smoothie or ice cream is always a good thing.

I love this smoothie, it’s so good!
