Breakfast this morning, Easy Banana Shake. Going to the doctor for a yearly exam is never easy. You enter the doctor’s office with high blood pressure because of uncertainty and when you hear you are doing well and healthy, it is back to normal. Why do we stress ourselves so much for nothing?
I needed something to make me smile, so I made this Easy Banana Shake with a nice kick to it. I usually make this recipe on Saturdays when I know I will have a long day of chores and running around. Because shakes are easy and fast to make, many of us are enjoying them more and exceptionally busy parents.
I remember my friend Karen made Banana Shake a lot when she was in law school. This was the most natural thing for her to make when studying long hours. I guess the banana shakes helped her since she is a robust Ms. Esquire now. LOL
This shake is best made with evaporated milk. It also tastes great with Almond milk. This recipe is no ordinary shake. It has ginger, cinnamon, vanilla extract, nutmeg, and honey. All the great spices you can think of. When using evaporated milk, add crushed ice to dilute the milk. If using regular milk, or almond milk adding ice is optional. Any milk you use must be cold to enjoy the flavors better.
This shake is excellent because it can be substituted for a meal. So skip the bread one morning and enjoy this Easy Banana Shake. Or add a homemade cookie!
