Sir Bananas Banana Split Poke Cake

Disclosure:  Thank you Sir Bananas and WhiteWave for sponsoring this post today in exchange for my honest opinion and review. 


I have a mild obsession with poke cakes.  Maybe it is because they are delicious, or super easy to make or both.  Recently, I had an event that I wanted to create a yummy dessert for but wanted something out of the box and perfect for spring.  I was thinking of some of our favorite desserts and a Banana Split came to mind and that evolved into a poke cake with the addition of Sir Bananas.  

Sir Bananas is a new family favorite - Bananamilk!!  Our kids drink a ton of milk and sometimes we splurge on some flavored milk but know that it isn't great for them but this new milk we have is different.  Sir Bananas is milk made from a delicious blend of milk and real bananas!  Not only is it perfect for drinking but equally amazing for baking and refreshing smoothies!

The addition of the Bananamilk to this recipe is perfect.  Honestly, you could totally skip the pudding mixture and just use the Sir Bananas milk as the poke cake ingredient.  This milk is so creamy and delicious - you feel like you are drinking dessert.  Yum!!  While this poke cake did have more steps than some of my poke cake recipes it was so worth it.  I can totally see me making this for summer BBQs or parties again.  It really does taste like a banana split!

  1. Poke cakes are just fun to make! I remember making them as a kid. We actually have Sir Bananas in the fridge right now. My kids love it, especially in their cereal. We used it to make cookie icing too. It was super tasty.

  2. Sir Bananasmilk sounds like a product that my kids would love. They definitely would love it in their plain cereal for that banana flavor. Your poke cake looks absolutely delicious and I may try to make it one day.

  3. Sir Bananas banana milk sounds really really good! It is just too bad that we haven't seen it around here. My husband loves the sound of this poke cake (he has a BIG sweet tooth). I think he is going to be bugging me to fix this one for awhile.

  4. I have been having a sweet tooth craving for 2 days now and then I came upon the cake. This looks so delicious that I am going to have to run out to the store to satisfy my craving. I will have to make this for my family as I know they would love it.
