Ever since making the cinnamon almond green smoothies (link here) a couple weeks ago, I’ve been a little smoothie crazy. I made more freezer packs so I have lots of those ready to go whenever I want one. And today, I’m posting about this banana pecan shake that I really enjoyed too.
Technically this shake is under the dessert/snack section of the book but it would be a great drink to have for breakfast too. It’s packed with banana and pecans and perfectly sweetened with healthy dates. Now that I think about it, this would be a great base to use for a smoothie bowl. You could put some sliced banana and chopped nuts on top, maybe some coconut too. Just thinking about that is making me hungry haha. On its own though, this shake is almost like healthy ice cream.
It was also super thick and creamy so I ate it with a spoon which was fun. I normally only like super smooth (lump free) drinks but I actually liked the texture from the little bits of date and pecan in this drink. The banana flavour was nice too. All together, this reminded me of banana pecan muffin, I would maybe add a little cinnamon next time to the mix.
Let me know if you have your own fave smoothie recipes/ingredients 🙂
