Recipe: Super Easy Healthy Banana Milkshake

Easy Banana Milkshake Recipe

You might have seen my post on my crazy relationship with bananas, but it’s by far one of my favourite flavours. Up until recently I would devour a ready made banana milkshake from the supermarket in no time, but of course they’re hideously unhealthy and full of sugars and preservatives. I put together this healthy banana milkshake recipe earlier in the week when we had one grim looking, over ripe banana left that Boyfriend was going to throw away. Smoothies and milkshakes are a great way to use up slightly bad fruit and vegetables.

Best Banana Milkshake Recipes

You can use 1 or 2 bananas for one serving. The more you use, the thicker the milkshake will be. I’ve tried both and I actually prefer just using 1 banana, but you can chuck in an extra one to get more fruit into your diet.

I used our Cooks Multi Blender, that I introduced to you in my Fresh Fruit Smoothie recipe, for this milkshake. It’s so easy to use and clean!

// Peel the banana(s) and break into smaller pieces with your fingers. Pop into the blender, add 1-2 teaspoons of honey and fill up with milk. Whizz up and it’s done!

Easy Healthy Recipes
Tip: If you find yourself needing to add more milk after you’ve poured the milkshake into your glass, make sure you mix it with a spoon afterwards or the milk might collect in the bottom without mixing with your drink.

The great thing about this recipe is that it gives you a sugary boost, but only uses natural sugars and it actually contains fruit, unlike those ready made supermarket milkshakes!!
