Don’t even play, you know it’s true.
Bananas are all mushy, and, like, banana flavored.
The really annoying thing about bananas is that they’re actually pretty good for you.
All full of good stuff.
Here’s a link to The Tao of Good Health, which I found while googling Why Are Bananas Good For Dancers, lots of actual info about ‘nanners.
But I’m not here to share helpful info, I’m here to tell you how to stomach the damned things.
You gotta freeze them.
Peel them, break them into pieces, put them in some kinda container (I use mason jars because jars are awesome) and then throw them in the freezer while yelling See You In Hell, Bananas!!!
Next day, get a jar, put the frozen banana bits in the blender, make a smoothie.
The frozen banana makes it nice and frosty-creamy, instead of all frothy and gross like a room-temperature banana does.
I throw in the banana bits, then a big scoop of almond butter (protein) then almond milk (vitamins A D and E, plus keeps me from going totally overboard on the dairy, as I like to do) cinnamon, and a scoop of carob powder.
Carob is my jam these days, as it has no caffeine. I used to do unsweetened chocolate powder.
The nice thing about the banana is that it’s sweet enough to sweeten the smoothie on its own, no added sugar necessary.
Speaking of jams, friend was over the other day and she was like, “hey, I know you’re not eating sugar, but you got any desserts in the house?”
And I was like, “hmm, let’s see. There’s some black licorice?”
And she was like, “Ew, no thank you”
And then I was like, “Oh! There’s jam!”
And she was like, “that is not even a dessert!”
And I was like, “No, it’s good! We have lots of kinds! You could have jam and a little spoon!”
I was getting really into this idea,
But she was not having it.
Jam was not her jam.
Anyway, here’s a picture of the gross room-temperature bananas, getting prepped to go into the freezer and become halfway edible.
