* Use an overripe banana to enhance the natural sweetness of the smoothie. I like to toss those spotty bananas sitting on the counter right into the freezer before they go bad.
* Use a powerful blender. This will help break down the frozen fruit to make a thick and creamy smoothie.
* You can use black or white chia seeds, but white will provide a more neutral colour with no black specks floating around.
*If you choose to use an unflavoured protein powder or leave it out altogether, you may wish to add a bit of honey, maple syrup or other desired sweetener to the smoothie.
