Hummingbird Cake Shake

Hummingbird Cake Shake

If you’re from the South, you know the deliciousness that is Hummingbird Cake. This divine shake recreates the tropical banana-pineapple combination — it’s like a slice of cake in a glass!

Traditional Hummingbird Cake tastes like a spiced mash-up of pineapple-upside down cake and banana bread. The recipe originated in Jamaica and is named after the national bird, the hummingbird.

It became a “Southern Classic” dessert in the ’70s and took flight in the U.S. after Southern Living magazine published a version of the original Jamaican recipe.

In addition to banana, pineapple, pecans, and spices, our version uses Vanilla Shakeology to add superfood nutrition!
