1. Throw all of the ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy. (Freeze bananas whole for easy measuring, then break them in half when adding them to the blender.)
2. Pour into two glasses and serve immediately!
For best results, use a high-speed blender like the Vitamix, which breaks down ice effortlessly. A traditional blender should also work, but you may need to add a bit more almond milk to facilitate blending.
