Banana Cream PieĀ Smoothie

March 2, 2014


Author Notes: Happy National Banana Cream Pie Day! I start every morning with a protein smoothie, and this banana-tastic version is by far the favorite in my flavor rotation. Take out the protein powder and it's a great frozen sweet treat after a meal.

The Maca powder is an optional ingredient, but highly recommended as it adds a great nutty, malted taste, without the allergens. The dates and stevia are optional as well, depending on how sweet you want this frozen treat.

This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, egg free, soy free, peanut free, tree nut free, corn free, legume free, refined sugar free, vegan, and no sugar added. Make this recipe Paleo by using a Paleo-friendly non-dairy milk like hemp milk or flax milk.
