So I posted an “Image of the Day” of some Chinese Dates and it got me in the mood for some dates. I just happened to have some date rolls in the fridge, go figure! And for lunch I had already decided to make a banana smoothie, so what better confluence than to combine my love of “Date Shakes” with “Banana Smoothies” minus the ice cream.
I know it is cold outside for most folks in the northern hemisphere these days, but hey, I am toasty inside and I have these bananas getting really ripe!
Two medium ripe bananas
