Banana pancakes and smoothie mix

Smoothies always look delicious and they are also healthy and fun for breakfast or brunch. Been wanting to put up my usual pancakes and smoothie recipe but decided to switch things up a bit and try something new. I used leftover bananas (which I didn’t want to go waste) to make the banana pancakes and banana smoothie.

Sifted the quantity of flour I wanted to use, although that was not necessary because the packaging of the flour indicated that it was already super sifted.
