A trick to perfectly creamy textured smoothies (without the dairy) is frozen bananas. I use them in almost every smoothie along with many other smoothie bowl extremists out there.
Whether you are in the mood for a nice green smoothie with kale, spinach, and matcha OR something a little more on the berry side, frozen bananas will pair nicely with both and make a great base for your smoothie!
If possible, I try to buy organic bananas from our local farmers market. Often times you can find a bunch of them that look over ripened and they won't be able to sell them. However, what's inside that brown peel is so perfect for your smoothie.
I usually end up getting a whole bulk of them this way for half priced to free!

A few dashes of each:
1. Blend all ingredients very well
2. Pour in a bowl or glass
