"What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?" -Anthony Bourdain

The refrigerator light goes on...

People are very particular about their bananas. They like them at a particular degree of ripeness and most folks don't like overripe bananas.

When your bananas turn a bit too brown, peel them and put them in a Tupperware container and then freeze them. There are a lot of great uses for frozen bananas and smoothies are a perfect example. They make for an ice cold smoothie that is super rich and creamy.

You can also use almond or soy milk for a dairy-free version. Make sure to look for alternative milks with no added sugars.
