Notes

This recipe makes 2 cups or 16 oz

Feel free to add ice blocks as you wish.

You can also add garlic. I make it with garlic from time to time.

This smoothie is kid-friendly because my kids love it.

You may likely feel the pulp in this drink, and that’s ok.

This is a light, refreshing drink, if you desire for it to be thicker, please add more banana, and reduce plant-based milk. Also, double the recipe to make as much as you want.
