Banana Shake

This is what I make when i have a sugar craving. We make these several times a week, usually late at night to enjoy while watching a good movie or an episode of star trek. :) Before you can make this you need to freeze ripe bananas. Because we use so much of these I try to buy over-ripe bananas in bulk from the produce manager. They will often give them to me at half off or some other deal. I peel and break the bananas in half (if your blender isn't very tough you'll need to break the bananas in bite size pieces) and stuff them in big zip-loc bags to freeze. The frozen bananas are what makes the shake so creamy. Don't substitute unfrozen bananas! In a few hours they'll be ready for your banana ice cream.

3 Frozen Bananas
1 cup vanilla Soy or Rice Milk
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

This isn't a science. I hardly ever measure anymore, I just grab a few frozen bananas, add enough milk to blend it and make the the consistency you like and add spices to taste. Blend until it's all smooth and enjoy.


  1. I just made this. I was seriously craving some ice cream and this hit the spot. Perfect addition to the blog.

  2. I found this stuff called soy whip btw and it really tastes like the real thing. Dairy free. I just love topping shakes with whipped cream, so this is a yummy thing to add to the recipe.

  3. Thanks for taking a picture! It looks so yummy. One of these days I'll get adventurous and take pictures of my food too. But I think I'll wait for a few weeks until I get home and have something besides plastic bowls and cups. :)
