banana milkshake recipe.
What better way to start the day than with an ice cool banana milkshake? This recipe is not only nutritious, but also delicious. Perfect for a fresh kickstart to the day, or a tasty afternoon treat.
Freezing bananas is a great way to minimise on food waste. Instead of throwing old bananas away, pop them in the freezer! It is best to freeze a peeled banana (trust me, you’ll get super cold hands trying to peel it otherwise).
The almonds add a subtle nutty taste and a healthy kick to the milkshake! They are a good source of protein and full of nutrients that are great for brain health.
Prep: 15 minutes
Serves: 1-2 drinks
· 2 whole bananas (one frozen and one fresh)
· A handful of almonds
· Half a cup of milk
· (If you are having it as an afternoon treat, add a teaspoon of ice-cream too!)
Adding just one other type of fruit to the milkshake adds flavour and nutrition, but only add small amounts to keep the frozen milkshake texture.
· 3-4 medium strawberries
· a few blueberries (my favourite!)
· half a kiwi fruit
Chop fresh banana and frozen banana (freezing a peeled banana makes this process much easier). Blend with almonds and a splash of milk (and ice-cream). Add chosen ‘other fruit’.
Keep blending and adding milk until you reach a smooth but thick texture. Pour out into tall glasses and enjoy!
