  1. Add ingredients to your blender except the frozen bananas and mix until thick and creamy.
  2. Add and adjust the liquid to make it thicker or thinner, depending on how you enjoy it, some people like it runny whilst others like more of a milkshake.
  3. Lastly add frozen bananas and blend.
  4. Garnish with optional toppings, serve immediately and enjoy!
