1. Make sure your bananas have AT LEAST some brown spots on them. More spots equal a sweeter smoothie!2. A high-powered blender such as a Vitamix is powerful enough to break down whole flax seeds. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, then your blender probably won’t be able to break down the flax seeds. In that case, be sure to use ground flaxseed.*You can use 3 pitted medjool dates or 2 Tbsp. raw unfiltered honey instead of agave for a fuller flavor profile. However, honey is not vegan, so choose dates if you want to keep this recipe vegan.
