Story: Make this for everyone, from children to adults, this smoothie is a crowd pleaser. This is my go to smoothie whenever my niece asks, “Can we make smoothie?” I know she not only will have fun dumping all of the ingredients into the blender, but she will actually drink it because all of the ingredients (blended together) are kid approved.
Tip: Would you like a thicker or creamier consistency? Add more bananas, or try adding a whole hass avocado.
