Banana Blast Smoothie

I am a fairly healthy person, and something of a fitness junkie, but I love food. So, when I started being health conscious I refused to sacrifice taste and variety. One of my limitations concerning smoothies and cooking is that I am lactose intolerant and for the most part most of my smoothies consist of a soy milk base. In search of the perfect smoothie, I started playing around with different smoothie combinations and came across a classic and simple recipe for an amazing banana smoothie.

2 frozen bananas (I usually just grab a couple of bananas that are very close to being too mushy and brown, peel, and freeze them)
1 cup of soy milk
1 tbs of honey

This particular smoothie is a snap to make. Simply put bananas, soy milk, and honey in your blender and mix for about a minute on the puree setting. Within 60 seconds you will have an amazing and nutritious breakfast that will keep you going all morning!

Tip: If you find that your bananas are to much for your blender to handle when frozen, just make sure to let the bananas thaw for a few minutes before using them. The more frozen your bananas are the creamier your smoothie will be.
