Hummingbird Cake Smoothie

…in a bowl. DSC_2617 (1280x887)

Inspired by Stefanie, who posted about a Carrot Cake smoothie last Tuesday, I woke up this morning wanting cake. Alas, cake is inappropriate for a Tuesday morning breakfast, unless of course, you make it in smoothie form with plenty of milk, fruit, and protein powder.

Hummingbird Cake Smoothie

  • 1 sliced, frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1/3 cup light vanilla soy milk
  • 1 rounded scoop vanilla protein powder
  • walnuts, for topping
  • cinnamon, to taste

Process in blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.

This has the flavor of cake and the texture of ice cream – how can your day go wrong when you start it out with this!?DSC_2610 (1280x864)


What’s your favorite cake? What are your favorite smoothie ingredients?

. . .

Last night I went to my friend Noah’s house to help him pick out an outfit for a first date he’s going on tonight. We picked out his clothes, a restaurant, and a time. I’d love to tell you his whereabouts, but he’s too cute and you guys might want to go crash his date. We talked about all the must-dos (pick her up, open doors, ask her what she wants to drink) and the no-no conversation topics. Noah was about to tell her how last week he picked up some deodorant and when he got home there was a black hair on it. I told him to not tell her that story over dinner.

. . .

Lastly, Britney Spears’ new c.d., Femme Fatale, came out today!

I pre-ordered it so it immediately started downloading when I turned on my computer today. I’m listening to it now, and so far it’s very clubby. Not sure how much I’ll like playing this in the kitchen, but it will be great for the gym. I’m currently loving the songs Selfish, I Wanna Go and Inside Out. Any Britney fans out there?

    ow- that looks like a delicious smoothie! I’m not much of a cake person…I like crisps and crumbles best! I think a peach crisp smoothie would be delicious! Loveeeee Brit. Glad shes come back to the sane side and I can’t wait to hear the new stuff

  • I’m a huge Britney fan! I’ve seen her in concert three times. One time I was right up in front of the stage. She had the best booty I’ve ever seen. Haha. I love the deodorant story, but I agree that it is wise to save that one for the second or third date. 🙂

  • Rissy

    I can’t claim to be a Britney fan anymore, but I will download the songs you suggested.

    That smoothie/cake thing looks delicious. What brand of protein powder do you use?

    I begged my date to quit re-telling the tale of my dog eating something he found outside while I was eating. He didn’t, and I got REALLY angry. I am actually angry right now thinking about it. ewwww


  • Oh wow I MUST try that smoothie! It sounds awesome!

  • Definitely going to try that smoothie out asap!!! Made your ‘Apple cinnamon sweet potato’ muffins last Saturday (and again on Sunday!) and absolutely LOVED them! So glad to see you’re a B. Spears fan too! Tagged you in my blog yesterday! Check it out http://www.pupspirouettesandapecan.com

  • I’m glad that you are telling your friend how to win over that lady friend. I would not react well to that deodorant story.

  • Did you see Britney on Good Morning America today?? I was so mad I had planned to get to work early today otherwise I would have stayed glued to the TV until 9 and just stayed at work late. Thank God for Tivo! And that smoothie looks amazing. Looks like I’ll be making another trip to the grocery store : )

  • I love hummingbird cake! I’m going to try this right now 🙂

  • I love carrot cake!Aangel food cake is my all time favorite though. The smoothie sounds insanely good! What a nice friend helping him out. You are such a sweetheart!

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss

    My favorite cake..hmmmm a tie between Carrot Cake and Hummingbird (which are kinda the sameish?), Red Velvet, and Dirt Cake. I’m pretty sure dirt cake will always have a special place in my heart. 🙂

  • Mmmm, that hummingbird cake smoothie sounds good! I’ve never been a big smoothie person, but I think I’ll try making that

  • I heart brit brit! I also love what a good friend you are to Noah – so cute!

  • Love the smoothie in a bowl- delish!!
    & I still love Britney too 🙂 She is awesome…despite all of the crazy stuff that has happened. She rocks!

  • My bf surprised me with tickets to a Britney concert two years ago and it was great! I’m not ashamed to admit I’m most definitely a Britney fan!

  • I flippin’ love Brit Brit, but I must say I don’t think she has quite returned to the level of fabulousness (totally a word, FYI) that she used to be. I’m holding out hope though 🙂

  • That cake smoothie sounds fabulous, girl! Way to get creative there!

    I’m not gonna lie, I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Britney Spears. Maybe it’s because I have this overwhelming need to stand up for people who are being picked on and she has certainly taken a lot of heat over the years. Or maybe it’s her sweet face or beautiful voice. Whatever it is, I’m definitely a fan of hers. 🙂

  • claire

    Ummm that smoothie looks AMAZING, I must try it! PEACE LOVE AND BRIT!!!

  • i wanna go inside and out? that’s sounds very risque. i LOVE me some b. spears and plan on snatching up some concert tix once she announces her tour (which you KNOW she will). i wanted to watch her perform on GMA this morning, but they kept going to commercials and I had to jet off to the j-o-b.

  • This sounds delicious – cake for breakfast in a healthy way!! 🙂 And I LOVE Britney! No matter what she does her music still rocks!

  • I’ve never even heard of hummingbird cake before, but judging by those smoothie ingredients, it sounds good! My favourite cake is definitely carrot cake. With cream cheese icing. That’s a must!

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine

    Now I wish I had pineapple to make this, cause it sounds AWESOME!! My favorite cake is chocolate mousse, and this morning’s breakfast was pretty darn close to it!

  • AHHHH this sounds soooo good!
    girly- your comment was so freaking sweet. you are awesome! I MISS YOU SO MUCH! but i am back for good now!!! i wana come visit soon okay?! love you!

  • love me some britney-just downloaded the new cd…waiting for tomorrow workout to rock out!
    My fav is a cake batter smoothie – vega vanilla sport, vanilla coconut milk, and frozen bananas!

  • hardcore Britney fan right here! She rocks. And as far as a favorite cake goes, red velevet had me at hello!

  • I previewed it and I’m scared to buy it now. I don’t like dance trance Britney, I like “Slave 4 U” and “Piece of Me” Britney!!

  • This smoothie looks delicious! 🙂 I love adding pineapple to my smoothies!

  • I just want you to know that I had your smoothie for dinner tonight, minus the pineapple, and it was delish. Thanks for the idea! Oh, and it was even in a bowl.

  • Britney’s new album has me on stage while I am driving. I love that it feels like original Britney. Very motivating music. I am kinda sad that her dance moves have gone South.

    Smoothie looks amazing (- the walnuts.) Question about the protein powder…do you think this is ok to drink if you are just going to work and sitting at a desk? I imagine it’s like eating a hard boiled egg. I am trying to find new breakfast options so that is why I am asking!

  • Your smoothie looks awesome! Yum!

    I used to love Britney…I need to give her another chance and check out her new CD!

  • Melissanibbles

    I love Britney! I love the album!

  • love Britney…saw her twice last year! Might have to see her again with Enrique…we will see 🙂

  • that smoothie looks so good! what a great idea! i’ve been on a major smoothie kick lately so i’ll definitely try this out!

    favorite cake = carrot cake! 🙂
    favorite smoothie ingredients = frozen fruit/berries, coconut milk, protein powder
