But, I can't justify eating a slice of that life-changing pie every morning for breakfast. Although I would definitely enjoy it while I was eating it, my waste line would quickly expand and pie for breakfast every morning. Well that's just pure nonsense.
So, what's one to do when the craving for banana cream pie arises in those early morning hours? Well, if you happen to have a pie sitting around, by all means slice a piece and enjoy (every once in a while). But, if you don't have one sitting around when that craving hits, then you can whip up this smoothie.
Banana Cream Pie Smoothie
2 Medium frozen bananas, sliced
1 Cup Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla
3/4 Cup low fat milk
2 Tbsp graham cracker or vanilla wafer crumbs

1 Scoop protein powder, optional
3-4 Ice cubes
Graham or vanilla wafer crumbs, for garnish
Place banana slices, yogurt, milk, crumbs, dry milk, vanilla, protein powder (if using) and ice in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses, sprinkle with crumbs, garnish with banana slice and serve immediately.
