Meet Pistachio Banana Pudding Smoothie.  Rich, creamy and so delicious.

It should come to no surprise that I love smoothies.  Not only do I talk about them all the time, but I drink them everyday.   While looking through my pantry I stumbled across a few leftover packages of pistachio pudding mix that I was using for my Pistachio Wedding Cookies over the holidays.  As tempting as it is to make another batch of those buttery cookies, I thought there was another use for these pudding mixes.  This smoothie hits the spot, especially when craving Pistachio Wedding Cookies.  It is rich and creamy and completely satisfying.   I add banana in it because I don’t dare call this a smoothie without some fruit in it.  Plus it compliments the smoothie nicely.   This reminds me of a dessert smoothie or if you just need a little fun smoothie to brighten your day. 

Just think of all the possibilities and combinations you can make with pudding mix and fruit in a smoothie.  Chocolate pudding with banana, banana pudding with strawberries, you name it.  This definitely makes a healthier treat or snack than a milkshake but this is just as satisfying as one.

    I am also a huge fan of your photography — can you share what camera / lens / lighting you use?

    I am just starting out and I find taking photos of smoothies to be a bit challenging because of light.

    I really this recipe although I added 1/2 banana more and added more milk.

    It is just me and my daughter and she doesn’t like anything healthy. Can this be frozen to save for a later thyme.
