Go Get 'em Smoothie

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by cookiedog

If you feel as though you do not have time to sit down for breakfast than this is the recipe for you. When I have overripe bananas, I often peel and slice them and place in plasitic bags in the freezer. That way, I can pull them out whenever I want to make a thick smoothie like this one. From Nigella Lawson.

First time I made this, I found it too sweet. I now usually omit the honey. Great and quick smoothie recipe!
