If you want a tasty and healthy shake you can make at home, look no further. This one can be expanded to make it more dessert-like with the addition of chocolate syrup, or you can add more protein with peanut butter, or more fruity with the addition of strawberries – Strawberry milkshake, anyone? I found this recipe in a very new cookbook by Katie Sullivan Morford, entitled, “Best Lunch Box Ever: Ideas and Recipes for School Lunches Kids Will Love”. I am not sure this one is so portable, but it’s a good recipe nonetheless! I put it all in my Ninja blender and my son loved it, so did I!
Makes 2 servings.
- 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
- 1 1/2 medium frozen ripe bananas, cut into 6 chunks**
- 2 tsp. honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 ice cubes
**Some people can tolerate bananas. I used to be able to, now I can’t. But maybe you can?
- Pour the milk into a blender, followed by the banana, honey, vanilla, and ice.
- Blend until creamy and smooth with no banana chunks or ice chips remaining, about 1 minute.
- Pour into two cups.
