Banana Coconut Cream Pie Smoothie

from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

This banana coconut smoothie tastes like a melted slice of banana coconut cream pie in a glass.

Those of you who have been following me for a while are well aware of my penchant for vegan pie-in-a-glass smoothies. The apple pie, pecan pie, sweet potato pie, blueberry pie, peach pie, cherry pie, and lemon cheesecake smoothies are pretty special.

While this banana coconut smoothie is not the most low-calorie smoothie on the site, it would be right up there with the tastes-like-ice-cream kale shake in terms of the wow factor.

Sometimes you just need a treat, and this one is pure indulgence. Soak the cashews and coconut for the best results, and throw in the healthy boosters, lest you be attacked by pangs of guilt.

Blend your way to bliss with this banana coconut smoothie, and thank me later.

*Probiotic Powder – I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt – I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
