This treat may seem decadent, but it’s actually super healthy! All of the flavors of your favorite dessert, packed in one smoothie.
I need to give a full disclosure before I start this post, I have never actually had a banana split. Weird? Maybe, but it’s true. Now that I’ve made this smoothie several times, I think it’s fair to say that I have become a huge fan!
You know how you have random childhood memories that always stick with you? A friend of mine and her family would take me out for ice cream. I would always order a scoop of mint chocolate chip, a scoop of cookies and cream, peanut butter sauce and hot fudge. Never, ever, ever any whipped cream. Ever. My friend’s whole family always ordered banana splits. I thought it was weird that they would always all get the same thing. The flavors seemed weird to me too. But now I realize what I didn’t like about it was all of that darn whipped cream. Yuck!
I know, again, I am most likely in the minority saying this…I do not like whipped cream. Never have and never will. But I found this vegan whipped cream that doesn’t taste so whipped-creamy. Feel free to use the regular kind if you’d like! This is a great way for kids to feel like they are getting a treat but it’s actually vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free! Shhhh…I won’t tell if you won’t.
Silk Vanilla Cashew Milk is creamy, is low calorie, plant-based, verified non-GMO and contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. I love to use it as a dairy-free alternative for my overnight oats, smoothies and even in my baking. It’s a great way to cut calories in my favorite cookie and cake recipes!
