Many frozen bananas + a 16 year old post wisdom teeth removal equals this recipe.  Only my daughter would be eating like a champ post surgery.  She’s dairy and gluten free and I don’t like chemical-laden frozen ice cream ingredients so I created this little dish for her.  Plus I have about 20 frozen bananas in my freezer at all times for my smoothies (I get very ripe bananas on sale, peel and freeze immediately)  I added some protein so it would help fill her up and let her stomach handle the pain meds/antibiotics a bit better.  This treat is easy to whip up and tastes so good.  You do need a powerful blender to make this recipe like a Vitamix.

Easy prep ahead and store in a tupperware container in the freezer.  This recipe made about 4 good sized servings and cost me about $3.00 or less.  No preservatives or ingredients you can’t pronounce.  It was so good she ate all of it.  I did sneak a sample before she devoured.  Happy Friday!


6 frozen bananas, chopped up into 2 inch disks
1 or 2 tablespoons of nut butter – I used Justin’s
2 tablespoons of vegan chocolate chips or cacao nibs
1/4 cup of cashew or almond milk – I used Silk cashew milk
1 tablespoon of vanilla Vega One protein powder


Place the nut milk in first then add the remaining ingredients.  Blend on high speed until creamy.  You may need to stop and scrape down the sides or add a bit more nut milk.  Serve immediately or freeze in an airtight container in your freezer.


As mentioned above, my daughter had her wisdom teeth removed this morning.  Today was a scheduled rest day so it worked out.  No update on my fitness today.

Sunday:  22 miles on treadmill
Monday: rest
Tuesday 4 treadmill miles
Wednesday:  3.5 progressive treadmill miles
Thursday: 5 progressive treadmill miles
Friday:  rest day

  1. This almost makes me want to get my wisdom teeth removed again…

    Oh wait. No, that really sucked. I’ll just have to eat it anyways.

    I knew there would be some banana recipes on the way! You look like you stocked up on bananas for nuclear winter!
