Banana Split Smoothie

Note: This smoothie is in honor of my sweet Big Guy whose 12th birthday is tomorrow. He loves a good banana split and I think this will be very refreshing after he gets home from working VBS. I think it is a very special kid who is willing to volunteer to work with preschoolers at VBS on his birthday.

Banana Split Smoothie

2 bananas
8 oz. crushed pineapple, drained
1 1/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup of unsweetened strawberries
2 tbs. honey
6 ice cubes
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream

whipped topping
chocolate syrup
maraschino cherries

Combine bananas, pineapple, milk, strawberries and honey in a blender. Blend until smooth, no lumps. Start adding ice slowly and blending until slushy. Pour into large glasses, preferably chilled then garnish with whipped topping, chocolate syrup, and maraschino cherries. The perfect banana split in a glass.
