Happy first day of summer! The weather has been cool and over cast here this past week but when the sun finally does come out again I’m sure I’ll be making lots of cool drinks for us to beat the heat with all summer long. Anna and I love drinking all kinds of different frozen fruit and berry smoothies but my husband Thomas is not a big fan of them. He does enjoy, however, the sweet and simple pureness of a banana smoothie. If you peel the bananas ahead of time and wrap them in plastic or place them in a zip lock bag before freezing them, whipping up this tasty summer drink is oh so easy. You can also add any other fresh or frozen fruits of your choice to this mixture and as long as at least the bananas are frozen it will still have a nice thick and smooth, frozen consistency. Enjoy!

Dairy Free Version:

1 Can Pure Coconut Milk (No additives)
