    Again with the Bananas!! LOL, so for us that are sensitive to bananas (it kills my gut) or just don't like them, could an avocado be substituted without a funky taste?

      Avocado would be an excellent substitute! You can freeze it or add ice. It gives the best creamy texture and would make this smoothie very much like a thick milkshake. You never taste avocado in smoothies. I'd add one to this recipe anyway to just get that perfect ice cream texture.

    I really want to start getting my girls into smoothies to replace what the nutrients they're not getting through the food they eat. They are super picky!! I'm trying to find kefir but I'm so confused. What kind should I get? Do I get it ground? Does it come ground? I'm so confused lol

      Kefir is a milk or water based product. Very much like drinkable yogurt. You can get sweetened or unsweetened varieties. It should be in the dairy section.

    Made this for the first time. I did not have the hemp or dates and I subbed yogurt mixed with milk since I did not have kifer. It was very good even w/o the dates and temp.

    Hi! What's the difference between hemp hearts and hemp seeds? Can they be used interchangeably (like in your Chocolate Peanut Butter and Chocolate Almond Butter smoothies)? Thanks!
