Healthy banana-berry smoothie recipe

Banana smoothies make excellent breakfasts, mid-day snacks, and hangover cures. Since bananas blend so well with other flavors, it's easy to create a smoothie to satisfy your particular tastes.

NOTE:
⊙ The fresher the fruit, the better the smoothie.
⊙ Banana smoothies don't store well (as it turns black faster), hence drink it up all!
⊙ Freeze the fruit before using if you like your smoothies icy.
⊙ Kiwis, mangoes, papayas, and all other fruits blend well with bananas.
⊙ Should you wish to add ice cream to your smoothie, do so, because it gives the smoothie a good taste.
⊙ If you don't want to use regular milk, try almond milk! It's delicious, acts as a natural sweetener, and has fewer calories.
