A blender, in the hands of my five year old, is the ultimate power tool. It makes noise like a motor boat engine and grinds a variety of objects -- both food and non-food items-- to a pulp. Most importantly, it can be a live volcano, when you leave the lid off while blending. Think Mount Vesuvius spewing chunks of frozen mango over Pompeii.

Once my bananas are overly ripe, I peel them, break them into pieces and put the ripe bananas in small food storage bags to freeze for smoothies. I use the frozen bananas instead of ice to give the smoothie a thicker, more ice-cream like texture.

2 frozen bananas, broken into pieces
