Banana Sundae Smoothie

I wanted to make banana ice cream for dessert the other day but only had half a frozen banana in the freezer. I added about 3/4 cup of frozen strawberries into a blender with the banana, added half a pouch of chocolate Vega powder, about 1/2 cup of rice milk and topped it with some dried coconut. Et voila, a high-protein, absolutely delicious, vitamin-enriched dessert OR breakfast ;)


  1. Nice frozen dessert. I'm gearing up to make your interpretation of a Rising Sun Smoothie. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

  2. Yum, this smoothie sounds decadent and delicious but is so healthy! A perfect summer treat :) I actually planned on a similar smoothie for my breakfast tomorrow, can't wait to try it!

  3. I like it! I was planning on making banana "ice cream" in the coming months, will have to add this idea to the list.

  4. Perfect warm weather breakfast!

    I bought the curry sauerkraut at Columbia's greenmarket, tasty but pricey. Please post if you replicate it. The caraway was also nice.

  5. This is exactly the type of shake, er, smoothie I can get behind!

  6. I was craving a frozen dessert last night but was feeling so chilled after a cold, rainy day that I ignored myself and watched Mad Men instead. Your dessert looks good.

  7. Shen, awesome. I can't wait to hear what you think.

    VaVa, definitely! It's great when healthy and tasty collide.

    Rose, oh it was :)

    Ingrid, both are totally delicious. This was a little more liquidy.

    Susan, I ought to try to replicate it! The caraway was good, yeah. I have a lot of those seeds so I really should.

    Abby, doesn't matter what ya call it just don't call me late for dessert.

    Andrea, it's been on and off chilly and way too hot here but I risked the frozen dessert :)

  8. Hey, random question: I'm going to be in NYC next week. Do I need a sweater or light jacket at night?

  9. Jenny, I usually carry a long-sleeved t-shirt with me because I'm always over-prepared but especially with the humidity lately, I've felt more comfortable not wearing it. It is definitely going to be warm next week! You probably won't need one.
