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!!

Recipe: 6 Salad Ideas for a Healthy Lunch

Best Salad Ideas, Healthy Lunch Recipe

Eating healthy can be a real bore and really hard to stick to if you’re just forcing down boring salads every day. I’ve been eating salad for lunch at work for about a year now and I’ve got rather experimental along the way. Here’s five of the best salad ideas:

1 // Spicy Tuna Salad – Half a bag of ready washed rocket, drain a tin of tuna and empty on top, sprinkle on some chilli flakes (from the herbs and spices section of your supermarket) and drizzle some olive oil as a dressing.

2 // Parmesan & Sriracha Salad – Half a bag of ready washed rocket, grate or flake a chunk of parmesan cheese on top and drizzle on a generous amount of Sriracha chilli sauce (from the world foods section).

3 // Tomato & Balsamic Vinegar Salad – Halve six cherry tomatoes (or my favourite are the plum tomatoes from Aldi, sliced), slice up some cucumber and layer with half a bag of ready washed rocket. Drizzle on olive oil and balsamic vinegar. So much tastier than it sounds!

4 // Baked Salmon Salad – Wrap a salmon fillet in foil with a knob of butter, oven bake for 18 minutes and flake over the top of half a bag of ready washed rocket. You can add olive oil, salt, pepper or even piri piri spice (Nando’s version is good!).

5 // Japanese Salad – A salad doesn’t have to contain lettuce leaves, this one is just a pile of shelled Edamame beans, some chunks of cucumber, slices of smoked salmon and a drizzle of soy sauce with wasabi on the side. So good.

6 // Tandoori Salad – Half a bag of ready washed rocket, drizzle on just a splash of olive oil, slice up some tandoori chicken (from most deli counters or cooked meats sections) and dish out some mango chutney as a dressing. You can even get mango chutney in a squeezy tub for your convenience!

Do you find salad boring? What are your tips to jazz them up?
