I’ve found the mother of allÂ smoothies- The Banana Split Smoothie! This smoothie tastes like a dream come true. Part of the fun of cooking is getting creative and branching out to try new things. Â I thought I was just making a chocolate strawberry shake but by adding the coconut and almond milk it turned into something very different and very delicious. I wasn’t expecting it to taste like a banana split but I am definitely ok with the fact that it did!
Good tasting food can also be good for you. That’s the key to developing a lifestyle of health and vitality. Who is going to stay on a ‘diet,’ if they are not enjoying the food they eat or having to count points, calories, or write down everything the put in their mouth? I used to be one of those people, but not anymore. I know that what I put into my body is pure, whole food that tastes delicious and feeds my cells on a deep cellular level. Â I can feel good about eating these foods and feeling full without guilt!
