Strawberry-Banana Cake Batter Smoothie

I’m always looking for ways to stay cool during the blistering hot months of summer. I can always count on a thick, frothy, ice-cold smoothie to do the trick. And, it’s full of healthy, wholesome ingredients I can feel good about.

I usually enjoy a smoothie every evening while I indulge in my Netflix series–I’m currently obsessed with Orange is the New Black. As I was gathering the ingredients to make my smoothie, I noticed the box of funfetti cake mix on my counter and light bulb went off. The last time I used cake mix in a recipe was in this Chocolate Banana Cake Batter Shake recipe and it turned out amazing, so I decided to give it another go.

Only this time, I decided to go the healthy route. Instead of ice cream, I used frozen bananas and Yulu Aussie-Style Yogurt to create an ice cream-like base. It has the same thick, creamy texture as ice cream, minus the unnecessary calories.

Each container of Yulu Yogurt is double smoothed to create an ultra creamy yogurt, and it’s made with¬†only the best, all-natural ingredients.

This smoothie gets its classic cake batter flavor from the addition of boxed funfetti cake mix and a combo of vanilla and almond extract. I added a little honey for an extra kiss of sweetness.
