Banana Split Smoothie

 

Oh my goodness, I’ve found the mother of all smoothies!! This smoothie tastes like a dream come true. I wasn’t expecting it to taste like a banana split but I am definitely ok with the fact that it did! WOW, you are going to LOVE this recipe and I am soooo excited to share it with you and see what you think!

You’ll need:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 Tbs Coconut Milk Powder – I love all things Wilderness Family, such great quality!! You can find them online or at your local health food store
  • 2.5 Tbs pure Chocolate Powder (Nativas Natural is my favorite!)
  • 1 -1.5 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 squirts NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until very smooth. Then freak out at how unbelievably good it tastes!!

I make all my smoothies using a VitaMix which is a super awesome, state of the art, amazing, must have high speed blender. They are the ONLY blender that will get you the creamy consistency that you desire.  I love, love, LOVE my VitaMix and highly recommend investing in one if you are ready to make serious changes to your diet. I have had mine for almost 5 years and use it daily! If you’re not ready to drop that kind of cash, Hamilton Beach makes some great budget friendly blenders that you can get at your local Walmart or Target.

 

 

Good tasting food can also be good for you! That’s the key to developing a LIFESTYLE of health and vitality. Who is going to stay on a “diet” if they are not enjoying the food they eat or having to count points, calories, or write down everything the put in their mouth?! I used to be one of those people but not anymore!! I know that what I put into my body is pure, whole food that tastes delicious and feeds my cells on a deep cellular level.  I can feel good about eating these foods and feeling full without guilt! You can do it too!

Part of the fun is getting creative and branching out to try new things.  I thought I was just making a chocolate strawberry shake but by adding the coconut and almond milk it turned into something very different and very delicious!! Try this recipe and leave me a comment, I’d love to know what you think!

    Very silly question, but I love your straws! Are they glass with little round dots on them? I’ve been trying to figure it out and I can’t, but they’re amazing!

    I’ve already made this smoothie twice, thanks for sharing. Didn’t add the coconut milk powder because I don’t have any, also no sweetener because the bananas were overripe. But added a few spinach leaves just because. It was delicious!
