Two-Ingredient Banana Smoothie

One super hot sunny day.  Sweat dripping.  Frozen bananas in the fridge.  Left-over milk.

It’s time to make banana smoothie.

My little boy and his dad were playing basketball outside which means I have this teeny-weeny little chance to sneak in the kitchen to make something that will beat the heat.  Something fast.  Something easy.  Done in a matter of minutes before my little boy returns and cling to me like a panda.

Good thing there were frozen bananas sitting in the fridge and some milk.  Yes, this smoothie is made of two ingredients only!
