Smoothie Sundays~ Banana Coconut Pie
I found a bunch of forgotten banana slices in the depths of our storage freezer. All of a sudden I had a huge banana craving! I don't have them all that often. Having your banana frozen prior to blending is crucial to the milkshake consistency that makes this amaaaaaazing.
You don't have to prepare the coconut milk ahead of time.. but it is 'best.'
Banana Coconut Pie Smoothie
1 Cup Frozen Banana slices
1 Cup Almond Milk (or whatever)
3 Tbs Shredded Coconut Flakes (I use the larger, but any work-unsweetened)
1/4 of scraped Vanilla Bean (you could use maybe 1/2 tsp of extract instead.. but the bean is so intensely flavored and you get all those pretty specks!)
Splash of coconut milk for blending (optional-I just happened to run out of almond milk mid-blend).
Blend it all! Add 1-2 ice cubes to get it extra creamy! So, so delicious!
