Um, yeah, can you tell we’re running around? Here we have cantaloupe rind – not even chopped like I normally prep it for easier composting – and an entire bunch of practically black banana skins. That’s all the food I prepped for the entire day. Melon for breakfast, no lunch and dinner out. But it was an amazing ballet recital & spring concert!
Secret Smoothie Tip: I hate soft “ripe” bananas, so when they get to that mush point I’ve got to do something or throw them out. I hate banana bread too, so, here’s what I do: peel the bananas, gently break them into chunks (you won’t even need a knife) and put them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Cover with wax paper or plastic wrap (if you aren’t opposed to it) and freeze. When they are firm, toss them into a freezer bag, and bingo – banana ice cubes for smoothies. Or, a cold, creamy, sweet snack!
