I have been making this every day now (with a frozen banana) for weeks. I have a huge supply of frozen bananas in the freezer.

I didn’t grow up with a Vita-Mix in my home. I sure wish I would have!  I think I would have had so much fun creating delicious concoctions. But I had to wait until I was an adult, with my own family, before I got one. With it, I have my own smoothie-bar! My Vita-Mix [...]
