Strawberry Pineapple Banana Lava Flow Smoothie

Strawberry Pineapple Banana Lava Flow Smoothie

I’ve made thousands of smoothies in my life but this one is special.

Because I’ve never made a lava flow smoothie but I’m hooked now.

Fast, easy, healthy, refreshing, and tastes wonderful. It’s so creamy and tropical-tasting and perfect for this weather.

Oh and it looks cool which counts for something, right.

The light portion is pineapple and banana blended with Silk Unsweetened Cashewmilk. It’s so irresistibly creamy and thick but with fewer calories than skim milk. Eating more plant-based protein is a great goal and Silk Cashewmilk or Silk Almond Milk are my milks of choice for baking and smoothies. They’re so low in calories and fat, they’re vegan and dairy-free, and I always get impressive-tasting results. It’s the perfect match between tasty and guilt-free.

The red portion is simply blended frozen strawberries. By using frozen fruit, I didn’t need to add ice which can water down smoothies. Plus frozen is cheaper and readily available even when it’s not berry season.

The fruit is naturally sweet so I didn’t need to add sugar which is always a win.
