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.
Recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.
- 2 Bananas - frozen
- 2 cups Soy milk - (original recipe called for Chocolate soy milk, use it if you have it)
- 2 tsp Cocoa powder - (reduce the amount if you are use chocolate soy milk)
- 2 tsp Agave Nectar
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon Ground
- 8 Ice (optional) cubes
- Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Enjoy!!
