Allison Day


Once again, it’s time for Taste and Create. This month, I was paired up with Finger Licking Food. Last week, I made her Macaroni and Cheese with a Twist for the A Taste of Yellow event, (which, by the way, is so good I made it three times in a week! I never make a dish that often. Seriously, it’s amazing!). Anyways, I decided to make her Banana Latte Smoothie for Taste and Create.

If you like coffee and bananas, then you will love this smoothie. She says you can add sugar if you want to make it sweeter, but it really is perfect how it is. It brings back memories of a drink my dad used to make during the summer. Whenever there were bananas that were getting old, he would toss them in the blender with some milk, ice, carob powder, and vanilla, and blend it all up to make “banana drink”. We always used to race to be “taste-testers” to make sure it turned out right… of course, it was always perfect. In addition, I have a midterm tomorrow! Yuck. So this will be the perfect pick-me-up before I have to go take the test!
