I like my smoothies to be thick and cold, but when I use fresh fruit I have a really hard time getting the right temperature and consistency. As a way to add some chill and thicken my smoothies I have been adding in frozen bananas. I strongly believe these are the key to a perfect smoothie. They are also super easy to do. 1. Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. 2. Slice your bananas and arrange to make sure none of them are touching.
3. Freeze for an hour or until your bananas are frozen all the way through.
4. Use a spatula to get them off the sheet and into a freezer safe container of your choice.
