  • 5 frozen baby bananas
  • 1 bunch fresh mint leaves
  • 2 Cups raw coconut water (I love Harmless Harvest)
  • 1 Tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend till smooth. This smoothie is so smooth and refreshing and makes a rather wonderful hangover cure.

Banana Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
