Here's another one of my twists on a classic summertime treat! It's nutritious, delicious and just as much fun as the original banana split!
You may have already seen my first take on the classic banana split! Well, this is another plant-based recipe! If you have all of the ingredients on hand this banana split smoothie can be created in just a few minutes.
You begin creating this treat by pressing two long, thin slices of banana to the inside of a drinking glass. The glass in the photo held one cup of liquid, and 1/3 cup of each flavour was spooned into the glass. The recipe will make two smoothies of this size, but you may choose to serve this smoothie in smaller glasses
I chose to stay with the three classic ice cream flavours: vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. But, unlike traditional ice cream, this smoothie contains mainly fruit and non-dairy milk. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I also added a little. cocoa (or cacao) powder to the chocolate smoothie.
Garnishes other than the two banana slices in the glass are optional, but fun to add! In these images I swirled extra strawberry smoothie on top and garnished with a fresh cherry. Yum!
