Banana Split Smoothie and Giveaway

Remember when I talked about moderation, exercise and healthy eating? Today not only do I have a delicious Banana Split smoothie recipe, but a giveaway for some CUTE workout clothes from Albion Fit! Hopefully this will inspire you to get healthy!

Banana Split Smoothie: indulge in a delicious, healthy treat that won't leave you feeling guilty! #smoothie #healthy

Let’s first talk food…then we will get to the fun giveaway!

One of my favorite go-to meals during the day is a protein packed smoothie. Yes, I said protein. As in protein powder. Don’t be afraid though. With all the delicious flavors I put in this smoothie you won’t even notice the extra protein boost!

With regular exercise comes hunger. I hate cooking for myself during the day. My kids are all in school, there are no lunches to prepare, so I want quick and easy! Smoothies are on my meal plan. And, when you add in that extra protein, you’re body will be completely nourished and you will feel full. Plus your muscles will recover from that great workout. (did I lose you at workout???)

Banana Split Smoothie: indulge in a delicious, healthy treat that won't leave you feeling guilty! #smoothie #healthy

I added in all the delicious flavors of a traditional banana split (bananas, pineapple, strawberry, chocolate) and topped it with whipped cream too. You could take it a step further and add some chopped nuts on top, but they don’t go through the straw to well. (recipe for smoothie is below giveaway details)

Now, how about the giveaway.

Albion Fit has some of the cutest swimsuits ever! I love the styles and choices they offer! The Emerald Green Jaw Dropper suit above is on my wish list! So pretty!

I was sent these adorable graphite capris. Let me just say, they fit perfectly. I’m always a little worried ordering clothing online. These capris have just the right support where I need it! As a food blogger that’s important! I’ve worn these a couple times now and not only love the color, but they are so comfortable. I’m able to move around without feeling restricted. I can bend over without worrying about tugging and yanking them up!

My youngest daughter started taking tennis lessons and I am in love with all the cute tennis clothes! I also received this white jacket from Albion Fit. It’s a little thicker than I thought it would be, which was actually a nice surprise! Here in the midwest morning and evening walks can be a little chilly. Now I can exercise in total cuteness but still feel warm. It’s not restricting at all either (I mean, look at that photo, she’s playing tennis)!! Seriously though, the quality of this jacket is exceptional!

  2. I want the white hoodie the tennis girl is wearing (or any of it!)

    Fun smoothie. Perfect to use up those ripe bananas!

  3. Telza

    I want the go long crew with thumb holes. It would be perfect for my chilly sunday morning yoga class.

  14. You lost me at workout but it is okay! My doctor says I need to do more cardio, does that mean running back and forth to the kitchen for snacks and cookies. Seriously, I am joking! If I chose something it would be the black optimum capris because black is supposed to make you look thinner!

  15. I am going on a long-anticipated vacation at the end of the summer, and if I won the gift card, I’d be all over the Albion Gown Suit (in poppy)!
