Banana Berry Blitz (how original)

I know, I know, banana berry blitz? It’s been done so many times before but I honestly couldn’t come up with anything else. Who cares what it’s called anyway? I’ll tell you what you should care about, how quick, easy and delicious this smoothie is. Sometimes I find it really hard to eat breakfast, especially when I have work early.

Banoffee Pie – 2 medium – large bananas, sliced – 2 tbs golden syrup – 395g/12 1/2 oz can of condensed milk – 75g/2 1/2 oz unsalted butter, chopped – 1/2 cup light brown sugar – 1 1/4 cups thickened (heavy) …
