James grew up in the Dominican Republic, so that’s why we call this a batida rather than a smoothie, but it’s really the same thing. James makes a batida of some kind to drink with lunch most days. Sometimes he throws in other fruits too like papaya, mango, or just leaves it banana flavored.
3 small bananas, frozen (maybe equal to 1 or 2 American bananas)
1/2 C mulberries (or any other berry)
2 C milk
6 ice cubes
1/2 t vanilla
1/4 t cinnamon
1 T sugar (optional depending on the sweetness of the fruit)
Blend in a blender until smooth.
