Cut the bananas into 1 inch slices and place in a freezer bag, and freeze for 6-8 hours.

LISA’S TIP

Matcha is an alternative way of getting your caffeine boost in a healthier way. Matcha powdered green tea is full of antioxidants, it has over 100 times more than regular brewed green tea. Be adventurous with your toppings. Adding a handful of spinach gives that extra boost and you can add a tsp. of almond butter for extra protein. If you are not a fan of avocado, add 100ml of almond milk and choose another fruit of your choice. As it contains caffeine, I’d advise not serving it to children!
