Healthy Banana Smoothie

I was looking for a way to use some of the bananas we have at home, in a more-or-less healthy way (banana bread, banana bundt cake, anything that says ‘cake’ excluded haha), when I stumbled upon this smoothie recipe that perfectly fit the available ingredients at home and both me and my Mr’s likings. Also the honey and lemon I believe help cure the remnants of our flu!

    I love a smoothie! I wish I had a blender.🙂

    • I believe you can find inexpensive – basic – ones too, We don’t have an overcomplicated one, it has 2 speeds, that’s it! Giving it a good use when there are fruits around🙂
