Banana Split Smoothie

Remember going to the ice cream shop as a kid – I always loved getting banana splits. The banana with three scoops of vanilla then topped with chocolate and strawberries. Mmm. When I worked at Baskin Robbins (for like three weeks during college) people would order banana splits with one scoop vanilla, one chocolate and one strawberry – then forego the toppings. People are insane.

Because I can’t really justify having a banana split for breakfast – even if my father-in-law is more than happy to give me a pass – I put together a breakfast smoothie that more than satisfies the craving but packs a ton of protein, vitamins and calcium. And very little fat.

Banana Split Smoothie

  • Banana – 1
  • Strawberries – a dozen or so
  • Chobani Plain Yogurt – 1 Cup
  • Ice – 1/2 Cup
  • Carob Powder – 3 Tbsp, or more for your chocolate-y pleasure
  • Honey – 1 Tbsp

Whirl together in a blender…

Give it the Mackenzie taste test…

He’s clapping in that last picture.

You can also add some kale or spinach in when the kids aren’t looking ;)

Turkey Trot Week 1

Today is easy peasy, walk 2-3 miles. I’ll be meeting Nick and the kids after work to do a nice walk along the river front trail. Where will you do yours?

    Why down at the marina, of course. It’s beautiful out today and the weather lady said we had a window of nice days left and then it is going to slam shut with cloudy skies and rain on Sunday. So, I’m getting out there as soon as I can get home and change my clothes!
