Banana Milkshake for One

Happy Monday! It’s Secret Recipe Club day again, and I’m super excited about it. This month, I was assigned Simply.Food, which is written by Nayna, who lives in the UK! Simply.Food is a vegetarian blog dedicated to simple, delicious food, and Nayna’s impressive recipe index made it really hard to narrow down what to make. I’m learning that this is going to be pretty common every month, because the blogs in the SRC are top notch! Her Egg Fried Rice is on the top of my list to try with her Chocolate Balls, (which would be perfect to give as a Christmas gift!) in a close second.

Now, I know that most of the country is officially in cold weather season now, so it’s seems totally nutty that I would make a milkshake in 30-degree weather. But hear me out: can anyone ever really turn down a milkshake?! I sure can’t, so when I came across Nayna’s recipe for Banana Milkshakes, I was sold. Even if I almost had to wear gloves while drinking it. TJ was out when I made it, so I cut the recipe in half, to make it a single serving milkshake, perfect for when you want something sweet, but don’t want to over indulge.

Let me tell you, this is one tasty milkshake! It’s not super thick, which is nice, and the little chunks of banana in every sip is delicious. So, throw on your warmest clothes, get in front of the fireplace, and make yourself this milkshake!

    I’m a total summer girl and yet I live in Philly where I’m already depressed about the cold YET I eat ice cream all year round, milkshakes included 🙂 Life’s too short to just enjoy in the summer. I love banana milkshakes – remind me of my childhoold. I often make a breakfast shake with frozen banana, scoop of cocoa, a scoop of instant coffee and milk – instant mocha frappe!
