Today I have the perfect summertime weekend treat for you to enjoy. You will love this deliciously frosty, lightly spiced and naturally sweetened parfait!
I happen to have a thing with buying underripe bananas, completely forgetting about them, and then suddenly finding myself with more overripe bananas than I know what to do with. Thankfully bananas are ideal for freezing and blending.
Last fall I made an awesome recipe for Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Parfaits. I knew I wanted to use the ultra-thick frozen consistency to create another smoothie parfait tailored for summer.
This recipe includes lots of frozen bananas (a great way to use up some of your stash), strong brewed chai tea ice cubes, almond or soy milk (I like using vanilla flavour but unsweetened works just fine too!), creamy roasted almond butter, coconut milk (or coconut yogurt), dates, vanilla, a little bit of maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon and ginger….
