Making this smoothie today proved why freezing chunks of banana is both smart and handy! I always have blueberries around, fresh or frozen, but bananas not so often. Thinking ahead and freezing a bunch made it possible for me to make this tasty and a little different smoothie for Hubs. Some reviewers commented that this was tart, and in a negative way. Hubs agreed about the tartness, but in his mind, he said, that was a plus. Since I used vanilla yogurt I skipped the almond extract which didn’t appeal to me anyway. I first made this for him eliminating the ice and adding some milk – he was not impressed. Said it was too thick (even tho’ I added milk) and not cold enough. I reblended it adding the ice cubes and he said it was MUCH better, something to keep in mind if you’re tempted to skip the ice cubes! He reported a subtle banana flavor. All smoothies being pretty much the same, he said this one distinguishes itself from the little bit of tartness. Ultimately, he described this as “nice.”
