Fruity Breakfast ShakesIngredients
2 bananas (soft, mushy, and overripe is best)
2 cup milk
1 cup fruit (optional)
1 egg (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup flaxseed (optional)
- Peel bananas and cut into chunks. Freeze. (You could flash freeze them on a cookie tray then place them in a container when partially frozen, but I usually skip that step.)
- If you have other fruit, cut into chunks and freeze. Fruit that work with this recipe are berries, grapes, melon, dates, etc. You can also make this shake with fresh fruit, but I vastly prefer frozen.
- Blend up the frozen bananas and fruit with a cup or two of milk. (I usually use an immersion blender, but a regular blender works fine as well.)
- Add the rest of the optional ingredients and blend.
Variations- Use homemade yogurt or kefir instead of milk. If you use this, you can also add citrus fruit like orange juice.
To up the protein and fat content, you can also add sesame, either whole or paste.
