What makes this stand out than the usual banana smoothies? The addition of pan fried banana slices caramelised slightly with a hint of honey…and some crushed graham crackers over your whipped cream.
Grab a blender cup…throw all of your ingredients in there…and go!
I love smoothies. I mean, who doesn’t?
And if you have a spare 2 minutes while your smoothie is blending…pan fry some bananas. Adding these crispy on the outside and soft on the inside banana slices into your smoothie?
It’s worth the extra 2.2 minutes it takes to make them.
They take your humble smoothie to a whole different smoothie world.
