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.
