slivered shelled pistachios
This is a good basic recipe for a banana smoothie with the addition of pistachios. I love using my overripe bananas for drinks like this. I followed the recipe exactly (except for cutting it down to 1 serving) and blended it for 2 minutes. The pistachios were perfectly blended into the drink and the flavor was still there. While pistachios aren't something I'll add again, I'm sure others will like this flavor twist.
I just made this and it's fantastic! I was going to make banana bread but didn't have enough ingredients for that so I just made the smoothie. I also didn't have a blender but - no worries! I took a bell canning jar and put all the ingredients in it and shook it vigorously. Voilia! my own hand made blender. Might-ee fine. Yeah! I just used to spoon to scoop out the unblended banana.
Add honey at the end. 1 tbsp was too sweet for me. You may not need to add it at all as bananas are quite sweet...
I used my Magic Bullet for this one! I had one blackening banana in my fridge and didn't want it to go to waste. So, I divided the recipe and made one serving instead of two. I used almond milk, chopped up my own, unsalted pistachios, and added chia seeds at the very end. So easy and so delicious!
