Instructions

Critical Control Point (CCP): No bare-hand contact with ready-to-eat food.

CCP: Hold and serve at 41° F or below.

  1. Freeze bananas at least one day prior to service. To freeze, peel bananas and lay on sheet pan prepared with parchment paper. Do not overlap or pile the bananas. They will stick together. Cover and place in freezer overnight. Once frozen, bananas can be stored together.
  2. Place yogurt, fresh bananas, frozen bananas, ice cubes, cocoa powder and nut/seed/soy butter in 5-gallon bucket. Blend using immersion blender until pureed and smooth. Note: A 5-gallon bucket can hold 56 servings.
  3. Pour 8-ounce smoothies into 9-ounce cups evenly and top with lid.

Tips

  • 1 pound EP bananas = 1 pound 9 ounces AP bananas or ~4 bananas or 2 cups puree. One serving provides 1 ounce meat/meat alternate and 1/2 cup fruit.
  • Fruit (puree) in smoothies credits as fruit juice. Fruit puree was weighed and measured without the addition of water or other ingredients. Pair with one more item to credit as a reimbursable breakfast meal!
