It's become routine now for my grandchildren to request these.
The twins expect them after dinner with us!
Elora wants one after school the days she is here.
Great way too, to use up bananas.
I slice and freeze them as soon as they are ripe.
We never have old bananas that we throw away, like we use to.
They just do not taste as good if the bananas aren't frozen.
I also try to freeze them flat, rather than in clumps, because they blend better that way.
Put several slices of banana in the blender, some milk (any kind), 3 ice cubes, a little vanilla. If it is too thick to blend, then add a little water, or some more milk. Sorry there are no measurements...probably about 1/2-1 c of milk or more to each banana. They always turn out very yummy.
(NO don't put shampoo in it.
I didn't realize that was in the picture.
I had just washed my hair in the kitchen sink before making the shakes.)
The twins are going through a picky eating phase right now. So if they don't eat a good dinner, I will add some protein powder to the shake.
The other night I was making one of these while Jonas was standing right by my legs, his little feet together and his hands clasped, just staring up at the blender. I stepped away for just a moment to get something across the kitchen and he immediately started sobbing. Just an all out grieving sob. I realized he thought I had changed my mind and he wasn't getting his shake after all. So as soon as I got right back there by the blender, he was happy and patient again.
You have to try these. They really do taste like a frosty banana ice cream, only better. There is just something about those frozen bananas!
