You can use fresh or frozen bananas for this yummy and healthy smoothie. When you use frozen bananas, this smoothie tastes like dairy soft-serve ice cream, only better.
Use more tahini if you are a body builder (way better source of protein than those expensive, all-chemical, powders) or if you need to gain weight. Tahini is just a great source of good fat, protein and calories. Each Tablespoon of tahini has approximately 100 calories. Vary the taste by adding additional fruits, carob, cocoa etc..
- 3/4 cup cup water
- 2 Tablespoons or more raw tahini
- 1-2 fresh or frozen bananas
- dash of vanilla (optional but really adds to the flavor)
Blend all til thick and smooth. Wait one minute or so for the banana flavor to overtake the tahini flavor then drink immediately. Serves 1.
