    The directions include items that are not listed in the ingredient list I am very confused. Ingredients list of frozen banana directions say add banana and rest of fruits no other fruits are listed. It says add greens and superfoods to the blender. I don’t see greens and I don’t exactly know what super foods are.

    What can I substitute for bananas in smoothie recipes? Almost all smoothies use bananas in them, & I have an allergy to bananas, so have not been able to make smoothies.

      Hi Doreen, we encourage you to try avocado in your smoothies as a substitute for bananas. Avocados will make your smoothies creamy and thick and nutritionally they carry wonderful healthy fats that will help you feel satiated and full for longer. Warmly, Maddy

      Hi Doreen You can also try using: fresh or frozen watermelon or canteloupe, pineapple, mango, papaya, pears, whole natural yoghurt or just try doubling the amount of berries in your smoothies! Experiment and see what you like best. Many of our Members have banana allergies too and this has not stopped them from enjoying the smoothies! There is a world of options out there! Enjoy! warmly Anna

      Hi Nina, you are welcome to leave out the banana and maple syrup to meet your needs. We recommend adding in some avocado to thicken the smoothie and replace the creaminess that the banana would provide. Good luck and enjoy! Warmly, Maddy
