PEANUT BUTTER BANANA CREAM PIE SHAKEOLOGY


Growing up, I was never a fan of bananas—not banana cream pie, banana foster or even {gasp} sliced bananas in my cereal. I've since come to realize that I am a very picky fruit eater in that they have to be the perfect ripeness. Bananas are the biggest culprit of not-ripe-enough or too-dang-ripe. You have your too-green bananas that are actually painful to eat and leave your mouth somehow stuck like peanut butter. And then you have your spotted and mushy 'nanners that don't belong anywhere but in banana bread or the freezer.

Luckily, 1.) I've come to love bananas, and 2.) This ShakeO gets most of it's banana flavor from a delicious {yet healthy!} banana cream Greek yogurt. So, for all of my {now} fellow banana cream pie and banana foster lovers - dig in, because this is 'nannerlicious without all the calories of the aforementioned decadent desserts. My secret ingredient that helps to cut the calories by 75%? PB2. Yes, it's powder - no, you can't tell it's not real PB when it's swirled into your smoothie. Don't you worry your peanut butter-lovin' heart.

The star ingredients in all of their glory

The recipe is as easy as {banana cream} pie! {P.S. Why do people say that? Have these people never actually made a pie?! Because, pie'in ain't easy.} Toss the following ingredients in the blender:

  • 1 packet Vanilla Shakeology

  • 1/2 frozen banana

  • 1 Light and Fit Banana Cream Pie Greek Yogurt

  • 1 Tbs. PB2 {25 calories opposed to it's "real" counterpart, which would come in around 100 calories}

  • 1 cup raw spinach

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened original almond milk

  • Ice to preferred consistency

And, what's a pie without some whipped cream on top?! It's not a real pie - that's what. I used fat free Reddi-Whip for a whopping 5 calories—so. totally. worth it. I also used to have animosity against whipped cream, but that lapse in judgement is long gone.
