What’s in a Banana Split Smoothie?
A classic banana split is ice cream, fresh bananas, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Yet over the years I’ve seen tons of variations on this, including my own.
- Spinach + Almond Milk: Make the “creamy base” for this banana split smoothie.
- Cherries: add in some natural sugars and depth
- Cacao Powder: Adds the chocolate notes throughout
