You’ll want to wake up to this Bananas Foster Smoothie! Yummy banana and caramel flavors in a protein-packed smoothie – delicious!
School starts for us tomorrow. I’m scared. And excited. Both boys will be in school ALL day now that Bryce is in first grade. Whatever will I do with all that time???
My Bryce is an eater. He loves food and is hungry ALL.THE.TIME. Last year he would eat lunch at school, then come home for a second lunch and was ready for a snack before we walked over to pick up Reece. You feeling me?
So, as you can probably understand, it’s SUPER important that I feed both boys well in the morning, making sure to keep them full for as long as possible. This Bananas Foster Smoothie is our new favorite thing. I could drink this for breakfast, lunch and dinner and still want another for dessert.
It starts with a frozen banana. I freeze bananas A LOT. They are perfect for smoothies and shakes. I cut my bananas in half lengthwise and then in half again crosswise, essentially quartering the banana. Just pop them in the freezer overnight on a parchment line baking sheet and they’ll be ready for you in the morning. (Once frozen, you can store bananas in a freezer bag.)
I use a half a banana for each serving so when I’m making it for the boys in the morning I use one full banana.
I add plain Greek yogurt for a protein-packed punch and then sweeten and flavor the smoothie with a little brown sugar, cinnamon, rum and banana extract (these are optional) and International Delight Caramel Macchiato creamer. Yum. This stuff is not just for coffee!
Everything gets blended with a little bit of milk until nice and creamy and then, if the boys are lucky, I top the smoothie with a little bit of whipped cream. Note: I always top MINE with whipped cream 🙂
Of course, if you’re not feeling like a smoothie, feel free to just pour some of that Caramel Macchiato into your morning coffee like I do and sit back and relax. Coffee house flavor on the cheap.
