Love, love, love going to smoothie bars! In fact after hitting a salad bar on my bday, I went straight to a smoothie bar a few blocks away. And there I got my usual: a dreamy creamy full of chocolate-y goodness banana smoothie! It tasted so good in fact that it was gone in less than 5 minutes! Because I’m a huge smoothie lover and because I’m wayyy too curious for my own good (got that from my mom), I was watching like a hawk at what they were putting in. While theirs was different in the sense of them using cashew milk and no protein powder, I found this tastes almost exactly the same!
