Hurricane Irene is causing major destruction in the east coast this weekend. As I type, I can hear the wind blowing and the pouring rain. They say there are thousands of people without power due to fallen trees. I can see a big tree limb from a neighbors tree in our backyard. I just hope my tomatoes and bottle gourd survive the hurricane (I know I’m being a little wane, but can’t help thinking of them).

So for today I have this very simple smoothie that I made for snack time the other day. If you have frozen bananas this is a snap to make. I have been storing my over-ripe bananas in the freezer, so they can be used in some way or the other rather than throwing them out.

Smoothie has only 5 ingredients and is very filling. I had it with some pita chips and hummus.

  2. We were craving smoothies today but had no electricity to power up the blender!!! But now the power is back and these look like just the right thing to top off a difficult weekend. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I always store bananas in the freezer to be used later for banana bread. This is another great idea to use up those frozen bananas!

  4. Thank you all.CL, we put all the plants in containers in the garage. So they are fine. Tomatoes are fine. Lauki I think too a beating, I’m waiting to see if it will survive.

  5. Thanks for a great idea- this was so good! I doubled the bananas and cocoa but left the milk the same. This gave it the texture and taste of a chocolate milkshake- it was SO GOOD! I also added some homemade pb but I couldn’t really taste it, lol. Now I know to always freeze my going-bad bananas!
