I love a good smoothie and with the current ‘heatwave’ i’m taking an all time fave and making a refreshing lolly.
To me this is a classic green smoothie recipe and often I find that many green smoothies are full or a myriad of random ingredients. Don’t get me wrong I love spirulina and almond butter or whatever else every now and then, but at the end of the day there’s something very tasty and simple about this. This is a smoothie I would drink daily just as a snack and I really don’t want to be over complicating things. It’s not good on time, mess or my waistline! But we’re making ice lollies here and this is also perfect as a solid, creamy, banana-packed iced treat. These are naturally way healthier than your average ice treat but definitely not losing out on flavour. They take absolutely no effort whatsoever (aside for waiting for them to freeze!) and can be adapted very easily.
If I haven’t convinced you to make your own asap then this will: these are….
packed full of bananas
contain zero refined sugars
low in fat
just sweet enough
cheap as chips
Of course the variations are endless, so have lots of fun mixing it up and trying something new. I’m thinking peach pie flavour next……..:-)
