Banana Split Smoothie

banana split smoothie

This may sound like an indulgence, but it’s actually a healthy snack that will also satisfy your sweet tooth.  Someone posted this on Twitter the other day and it looked so good I immediately made it.  I added some chopped nuts on top since I was having it for lunch and wanted it to be more substantial.

If you’re suffering in one of these widespread heat waves, this is the perfect way to cool off!

    Can smoothies be refrigerated after making? Some of them make 2 servings and I am the only one who will be drinking them. Could I refrigerate half to drink later in the day or the next day?

      I recommend freezing the extra in an airtight container. Let it thaw in the fridge overnight and it will be the perfect consistency the next morning – smooth and spoonable, yet frosty!
