It’s received rave feedback from a Michelin star chef, won a golden ticket on Food Network Canada’s Recipe to Riches, garnered attention from CBC’s Dragon’s Den, and now, Erin Ireland’s To Die For Banana Bread will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind smoothie by Gastown’s most popular new food cart, The Juice Truck, to raise money for Movember.
It’s To Die For Fine Foods Founder and Vancouver reporter Erin Ireland is always up for fun, wild ‘n crazy food projects. When she met The Juice Truck founders, Ryan Slater and Zach Berman, a juicy collaboration was inevitable. After much experimenting, ‘The Banana Bread Smoothie’ — made with To Die For Banana Bread, banana, cacao nibs, cinnamon, and soy milk — was born. It’s believed to be the first of its kind.
“I’m such a fan of The Juice Truck and couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Zach and Ryan for this project,” says Erin Ireland. “Our businesses have lots in common as each was born entirely naturally: theirs, through a passion for juice, and mine, through a passion for to die for, extreme-flavored food. Movember Canada is doing amazing things and they’ve inspired us to join in the movement – with smoothie moustaches!”
The Banana Bread Smoothie will be available from Tuesday, November 1 to Wednesday, November 30 at the bright pink food cart, The Juice Truck, located on the corner of Water and Abott in Gastown. One dollar from each beverage will be donated to Movember Canada in support of Prostate Cancer awareness.
