My mom gave me this recipe when she came to visit a couple weeks ago – it’s quite possibly the tastiest smoothie I’ve ever had and it’s really easy to make:
My mom made it with pineapple as well, but I think the frozen bananas taste much better because they add just the right amount of sweetness to the drink. The ingredients aren’t difficult to come by – coconut milk, freshly squeezed limes, water (to dilute the coconut milk a bit), and frozen bananas:
Since I don’t add sugar to the smoothie, it’s important to use bananas that are past their prime (the kinds you save for banana bread) because they’re much sweeter than bananas that are perfectly yellow. I usually buy too many bananas and end up freezing some for smoothies or baking, and this is a perfect excuse to use up some of the bananas in my freezer! Definitely try this recipe, especially with a little rum – it’ll make your day!
