Cook's Notes

If the bananas are not particularly sweet or you just like your smoothies on the sweeter side add a little liquid sweetener such as maple syrup or 2 to 3 dates, which will add a lovely caramel flavor.
If you're using fresh fruit or prefer your smoothie on the thicker side a few ice cubes to make the smoothie thicker.
