Some like it big, some like it bold. Whichever way you prefer it, this is the smoothie for you. Packed with potassium and protein, it's great before exercising, or you can freeze it and take it along on a hike. It will thaw and be ready to drink when you've reached your peak.
The cluster of bananas sold in stores are actually called hands, not bunches. A bunch is a fifty-pound cluster that consists of many hands, each with a dozen or so bananas attached.

4 fresh bananas, frozen and sliced
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon carob powder
Combine soy milk and tofu in blender. Add the bananas, honey, vanilla extract, and carob powder. Blend until smooth.
