Indulge in this tasty smoothie and feel good about it! Breakfast, lunch, snack or dessert, the choice is yours. The is a tasty, creamy and light smoothie, gently spiced with sweet-tasting spices. It is from Ashley at BakerByNature and, as always, you’ll find the recipe details at the end of the post.

Ashley suggests …

The most important step is freezing your bananas ahead of time. Frozen bananas are key to both texture and flavor in this recipe, so be sure to slice them up and pop them in the freezer for at least 6 hours before blending. It’s an easy step, but one easy to forget!


The second thing: Don’t skip or skimp on the vanilla! There’s 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract in this smoothie and that’s exactly how much it needs to get that real sweet pie taste. After a few sips and slurps you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Viva vanilla!


Last but not least, NILLA WAFERS! I have tested this recipe a ba-jillion times (ok…maybe more like 10) and I find Nilla wafers a must! If you have a vanilla wafer cookie that you’d rather use in its place, that should be fine, but just don’t skip them. The cookie, like the banana, is essential for texture and taste.
